Obsidian wants to work on Chrono Trigger

While Obsidian is happy to be working alongside Square Enix on the latest Dungeon Siege title, studio CEO Feargus Urquhart has said that the studio would’ve been happy if they could work on Chrono Trigger.

When asked if there was any other franchise other than Dungeon Siege that they’d like to work on, Uruqhart replied:

“If I could come across everything that I played I would have to go with Chrono Trigger. I think Chrono Trigger was one I really enjoyed,” Uruqhart told Siliconera.

Lead designer Nathan Chapman said that the developer chose the RPG because it allows for more choice than standard Japanese role-playing games.

“I think we’re going with Chrono Trigger because it has elements of a Western RPG. It’s more open, it’s still mostly linear, but there are parts you can explore more,” said Chapman. “There are lots of differences, like you can beat Lavos at different parts of the game and you get different endings based on that. There are obvious answers like dialogue trees and all of that good stuff. The seeds are there for that kind of development.”
