Chrono Cross Survives Famitsuu
Famitsuu, a respected japanese publication, has given Chrono Cross a 36/40. Each of the reviewers scored the game a 9 out of 10. Anyone who often checks out Famitsuu's scores knows that they can be harsh, so if Chrono Cross scored this well, chances are it will be a winner. With the recent re-release of Chrono Trigger topping the sales charts in Japan, this is the perfect time for Square to unleash the sequel and continue the frenzy.
Another happening at Square is the delay of Vagrant Story from late this year in December, to sometime in January. It's ok though. Most of us may still be playing through Chrono Cross to notice...
On a different front, Dragon Quest VII has met with a delay again! It has been pushed back from December 29 to Winter. No formal date has been set. The delay is seemingly because of Enix's desire to enhance the title. With all the delays and schedule shuffling Dragon Quest has had in the last two months, Enix will either have one hell of a good RPG on the way, or are stalling because they developed a poor game. I pray it isn't the latter.
