The series lives on in another dimension.
During a recent interview with Chrono Trigger director Takashi Tokita, I asked if RPG fans will ever see another Chrono Trigger game. His answer was interesting to say the least.
“There was actually a time when I planned a new title called Chrono Break,” Tokita explained via email. “Though it was canceled before accomplishing anything, the overall idea for the title was carried over to my latest game, Final Fantasy Dimensions II. Aemo’s character setting and the balance between the three characters at the beginning…these were based on the original concept [for Chrono Break] but were reworked for this title.”
Chrono Break is the name of a trademark registered by Square Co. back in 2001, but the trademark was allowed to expire and the game was never made. Still, it’s nice to know that it manages to live on in another dimension. Final Fantasy Dimensions II is currently available on iOS and Android.
