Hironobu Sakaguchi wanted Chrono Trigger to evolve in a series 'like a Final Fantasy'

Final Fantasy creator and Chrono Trigger designer Hironobu Sakaguchi wanted Chrono Trigger to "evolve into something like a Final Fantasy" in terms of serialization, the Mistwalker founder said today during a PAX Prime panel. Sakaguchi worked as a designer on the original Chrono Trigger. Speaking via translator at the "Hironobu Sakaguchi Reflection: Past, Present, Future of RPGs" panel, he explained that game could have had more than follow-up Chrono Cross, which Sakaguchi did not work on. "We wanted to continue it as a series," Sakaguchi said. "... But — and I think the statute of limitations has passed and expired so I think I'm okay saying this — but we just didn't see eye-to-eye with management, and so I went and fought for it, and I officially lost the battle."

Awesome Games Done Quick 2014, a livestreamed marathon of speed runs that is raising money for cancer research, is currently taking place through Jan. 11. Interested parties can watch the stream on Twitch and donate via PayPal, with the funds going to the Prevent Cancer Foundation.

Jay-Z meets Chrono Trigger in 2 Mello's 'Chrono Jigga' album

2 Mello, a hip-hop producer and MC from Lexington, Ky., released Chrono Jigga today, a mashup album of Chrono Trigger songs and Jay-Z lyrics available free on Bandcamp. The album overlays Jay-Z lyrics on top of samples from Square's mid-'90s role-playing game, the soundtrack for which was written by composers Yasunori Mitsuda and Nobuo Uematsu, the latter of whom is a longtime Final Fantasy composer. "Look, as a gamer and MC/hip-hop producer, I had always wished there were more idols in the field of rap music who gamed, or at least talked about it a bit in their raps," 2 Mello writes on Bandcamp. "It would have helped me relate more, and certainly made me feel more comfortable in the art. There are guys like Jay who are just mega media moguls hiding their personality, and I wanted to...
