Despite the existence of Chrono Cross and Radical Dreamers, many JRPG fans continue to be a true sequel to the SNES game Chrono Trigger in 1995. Square Enix has released more gamers in the game over the years, but has hardly played with the term release of a sequel. A fan has taken it in his own hands to show the fans what a new sprite-based follow-up of Chrono Trigger could look like. Simon Stafsnes Andersen, the creator and leading pixel artist of the Owlboy indie platform, has released a beautiful mock-up trailer for his view of a Chrono Trigger sequel.
The title "Chrono Break", Andersen's work features spreads much more detailed than what was seen on SNES and is more like pixel art in today's sprite-based games, including Andersen's own Owlboy. While the trailer is short, it is able to showcases cutscenes, match scenes and a meeting of the game's main character and antagonist. All this is accompanied by a great music track from Jonathan Geer complimenting the imagination setting and the increasingly intense images.
This has been my most ambitious leisure game so far, which spans about two months of work and with music by Jonathan Geer. If the sequel that was planned years ago was revived, this is likely how I would do it.
