Game news PS5: Remake of a “high-end RPG” in preparation, Chrono Cross in sight?
The Japanese studio Mutan Insight is currently recruiting for a remake developed on PS5, which is referred to as “high-end RPG”. Is there any connection with the rumor that has been going on for a few months about the return of Chrono Cross?
The header video is the JV Daily from November 24, 2021, which discusses rumors surrounding the potential remake / remaster of Chrono Cross.
Who is the Mutan Insight Studio?
As the website reports Gematsu, several particularly interesting job vacancies were seen on the Mutan Insight website. You mention a mysterious remake of a “high-end RPG”to use the terms of the ads for positions of the 3D motion designer, character and set designer, or even 3D artistic director. Few other details are given other than that The game is being developed on PS5 with Unreal Engine 5.
Given its liabilities, there’s a good chance Mutan Insight is simply a co-developer of this project. In fact, the studio has mainly supported the development of games like Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth, Atelier Ryza and Atelier Ryza 2, Blue Reflection and Blue Reflection: Second Light, or even Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ardyn. It remains to be seen who Mutan Insight is working with on this “high-end RPG”.
Chrono Cross or another project?
Some have already linked this discovery to the Chrono Cross rumors. Released in Japan in 1999, The sequel to Chrono Trigger would be back soon, but more as a remaster than a remake according to sources from Gematsu and Nick Baker, co-founders of XboxEra.
Different possibility: Given that Mutan Insight has already worked with Square Enix and, more specifically, Final Fantasy 15, we can imagine the Japanese giant turned to the studio for help with the development of Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2, especially on the production of assets. Of course, everything is still a guess at this point. Hopefully we will get specific and official information soon.
