Chrono Cross Remastered May Soon be Announced, Possibly Multi-Platform

Chrono Cross

Mounting evidence suggests that Chrono Cross Remastered will soon be announced, but some claim it will not be a PlayStation exclusive.

As previously reported, reverse engineer and security researcher Ighor July discovered a list of over 18,000 games via NVIDIA GeForce NOW in September of this year. The list included seemingly unannounced titles, such as (at the time) Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition.

Final Fantasy Tactics Remaster also appeared on the list, and recently appeared on key retailer Instant-Gaming. As such, much hype has been building over the titles in the “NVidia Leak.” Nonetheless, NVidia later stated that the list included released and/or “speculative titles, used only for internal tracking and testing.” Chrono Cross Remastered was one of the titles on the list.


Folk singer Ava (also known as Éabha McMahon) told a radio show in October that he had been asked to record an Irish language theme for an unannounced game prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. He divulged this was a remake for a PlayStation game. “It’s actually going to be announced at Christmas,” Ava stated at the time.

Ava wrote the song with Michael McGlynn; who’s daughter was also seen in a tweet by composer Yasunori Mitsuda less than two weeks later. Mitsuda worked on Chrono, Xeno and Shadow Hearts franchises. In the photo, McGlynn’s daughter was preparing to play music remotely.

Now, XboxEra co-founder Nick Baker discussed what Ava had stated on their own podcast in November (along with tweeting a hint about it after news of Ava’s comments spread). Baker further claimed this would be the remake would be Chrono Cross Remastered. However, Baker claimed based on his sources the game would not be a PlayStation exclusive, only the announcement would first come from PlayStation.
