Will Singing Mountain be one of the “new” dungeons in Chrono Trigger DS?

By Spencer . August 25, 2008 . 11:20am


An early version of Chrono Trigger had an area in 65,000,000 B.C. with outdoor waterfalls and indoor lavafalls. Singing Mountain was not in the final game, but it looks fairly complete. The official Chrono Trigger soundtrack even had a unique song for the level in addition to an unused battle theme. Since the assets are already done Square Enix could use this as one of the new dungeons (note: plural) in Chrono Trigger DS.


Do you think we’re going to explore Singing Mountain in November?


As a side note Square Enix posted the official box art and it doesn't use Echoes of Time as a subtitle. Square Enix spent money to trademark Echoes of Time so this could be a sign that the DS remake is a Valkyrie Profile Lenneth-like spark for the Chrono series.

    Please Square Enix… don’t screw this up >.< I’m interested to see if the creators’ original intentions regarding the unused music tracks will be fulfilled.

    Who cares? It’s Chrono Trigger. It’ll be awesome either way, and people will buy it either way.

    Even though the snowy field looks good against the white background, I’m a little disappointed they’re using the same exact box art as the SNES cover. I was looking forward to a brand new cover art like the DQ DS Remakes. I wonder if the Jpn version would sport a new illustration. Regardless, this cover does look nice, Toriyama is really of a different league.

    Well, it does look nice, I think thats the most important aspect. It really flows well with the DS trade dress and all.

    I hope Singing Mountain makes it. At the end of the game, only one character didn’t get a dedicated quest, so adding Singing Mountain for that character would be great!

    I also hope they implement the hidden chambre in the Zeal kingdom.

    Box art looks great!

    @Carmen: Well, Mitsuda is involved with the port as some kind of audio supervisor, so hopefully the music will be in tune with what the team would have wanted.
