But it's not like Squaresoft is updating Chrono Trigger so why not let them have at it?

Yeah, but it'd be nicer to have a remake of a classic. It sounds like these people weren't really equipped to write an original project. Like some people that train their musical skills by remixing music, programmers train themselves by emulating other programs before they try and create something original. Besides, a lot of people would have rather had 3D Chrono Trigger than Chrono Cross, maybe this is a way of realizing that.
I guess they can try that now though!

I guess if anything they should have kept it a secret until they had something to release.

Oh, I would have actually liked to see a remake of that game in 3D. I'd also like to see those remakes of the Final Fantasy games Square had been talking about forever.

As long as it's an RPG, the PC is lacking many good ones. A homebrew 3D RPG engine would be cool, too.
