If we do not yet know the name of the lucky winner with certainty, various clues seem to indicate that this name stands out, and that it will be multiplatform.
A rumor has been going around since last month about the remake of a big Playstation game. She is the singer Eabha McMahon, better known as AVA, who revealed in an Irish radio interview that she recorded an Irish-language song for this game with Michael McGlynn.
But according to Nick Baker, co-founder of the site XboxEra, there is no doubt that the game that will benefit from the remake will be none other than Chrono Cross, under the name Chrono Cross Remastered.
According to him, in an interview given to VGC, the title was already one of the games on the list leaked from NVidia in September, and although Chrono Cross was originally a Playstation exclusive, this time the game will be multiplatform:
When I hear the words “JRPG” and “multiplatform”, I automatically think of PC, Playstation and Switch. […] This is not what I was told, just a guess. All of my sources have told me that it (the game) will be cross-platform, and not a Playstation exclusive. But I think it’s confusing because Playstation is supposed to announce it, so everyone thinks it’s going to be an exclusive, but that’s not always the case. […] I don’t know if Xbox is one of the affected consoles, I guess it’s not because it’s a JRPG.
Another clue that can point in this direction is that a little less than two weeks before the AVA interview, Yasunori Mitsuda, the composer of Chrono Cross, had tweeted a photo of McGlynn and her daughter preparing to sing.
What’s more, AVA was the singer of the group Anuna, founded by McGlynn.
Of course, this information should be taken with the greatest care. We will surely not know that during the next Game Awards, scheduled for December 9, 2021, given that Sony has no other event planned until Christmas.
