Hironobu Sakaguchi revealed during a PAX Prime 2014 panel yesterday that he wanted Chrono Trigger to “evolve into something like a Final Fantasy” in terms of serialization.
Sakaguchi told attendees who stopped by his “Hironobu Sakaguchi Reflection: Past, Present, Future of RPGs” session:
“We wanted to continue it as a series… But — and I think the statue 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.”
Sakaguchi also said the following when it comes to working on past projects like The Last Story:
“Just between some of us that worked on it, we would hope or we talk about it once in awhile that we’d like to. All those IPs, there isn’t a continuation or a series. Nothing’s confirmed. But again, it would be nice to be able to work on a continuation of my old creations.”
