The ever famous Chrono Trigger director, Takashi Tokita, has said he would eventually like to see Square Enix bring the critically acclaimed RPG back in some form.

Speaking to Game Informer, Tokita said Chrono Trigger, which is still considered to be one of the best RPGs of all time, was special because  “It was essentially a dream mix between Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest; creating or exceeding what it was in its original form is a very difficult feat.”

Tokita, in the interview, reminisces about some of other members of Chrono Trigger’s all-star development team, which included Yoshinori Kitase, credited with directing many of the best Final Fantasy titles; Yuji Horii, creator of Dragon Quest; Dragon Ball Z creator and artist Akira Toriyama; and legendary Final Fantasy soundtrack composer Nobuo Uematsu.

 “At the end, we had a couple hundred working on the game at the same time. It was kind of like a grand festival – it was really fun. [Tetsuya] Nomura was actually creating the environment background pieces in Chrono Trigger – like the courthouse scene, that was created by him. But everyone probably enjoyed how we were able to do things we’d never done with Chrono Trigger. That was the most exciting part.”

Tokida added that, ideally, he’d like to “Personally, if there is ever an opportunity, I would love to see a high-quality, high-end version of Chrono Trigger. Or a movie production, or something of the sort.”

Chrono Trigger was released for the Super Nintendo in 1995. It has been re-released for Nintendo DS, iOS, and Android. A spiritual successor for the first PlayStation calledChrono was released in 1999. Would you like to see a HD remake of the RPG? Tell us in the comments below!

I have worked hard to become the COO here at GAW and I love it. I write and stream here and I couldn't be happier. I once had a show that I produced, wrote, and co-hosted called the Wide World of Games. I also co-host a podcast called Party Up! I'm an Action-Adventurer, platformer, RPGer, and FPS kind of gamer. Quick to play any game that has magic, swordplay, and/or stealthy elements. If you can customize a character I'm in it for the long haul. Or just give me your 2D platform and I'm a happy camper. What else do you expect from a gamer with a beard and a bow tie tattoo? Seriously.
