New Chrono Cross Plot Info!

New details have emerged on Chrono Cross's story, including more ties to Chrono Trigger.

It seems that Lucca, the science-whiz from Chrono Trigger (who is still very much the inventor), turned her house into an orphanage. This would explain the childish drawings previously seen adorning Lucca's wall. One day the orphanage is set on fire, and Serge rushes in to save Lucca and the children. However, he finds nothing except Lucca's glasses, leading him to believe she has been captured by someone.

Where Chrono Trigger dealt with time travel, Chrono Cross will contain elements of both time traveling and parallel worlds. This leads one to believe there could be two or more versions of each time period.

The GrandLeon sword (called the Masamune in the US Chrono Trigger) is present once again. The sword's powers reflect those of its user. However, instead of being in the hands of a good person like in CT (Glenn, or Frog), it now belongs to a person with an evil heart. The only weapon more powerful than the GrandLeon sword is the Elrazak Dragon Sword, but its whereabouts are unknown.

The Frozen Flame, Chrono Cross's equivalent to Zelda's Triforce, is supposedly only a legend. It is said to be able to grant anyone's wishes, if they are willing to pay a price. Even so, it is still sought after by many individuals.

Lastly, good news for fans of Chrono Trigger hoping for some returning characters (like myself ^_^): Along with Lucca, Marle has been confirmed to be in Chrono Cross as well, as a Queen now, as opposed to being a Princess in CT. It's likely that other characters may return as well.

Chrono Cross is due for release in Japan November 18, and next fall in the US. On a related note, the PlayStation remake of Chrono Trigger was released today in Japan. However, Square EA has not decided if the remake will grace US shores as of yet.


A large thanks goes out to Taisho-sama for this information.
