Kinda pisses me off that they tease us with a countdown and all that just to announce a port and not a new game. Everyone has been wanting to see a sequel for years and many thought despite the leak of a iOS version that this would be a new game but seems not. Disappointing for sure.

Would be nice if they port it to PC at some point but yeah still disappointed by this whole thing.

People keep saying this, but what do you expect out of a sequel to this game? I mean they pretty much wrapped up the entire story. That said, this is the perfect game to put on Iphone. Only problem I can see is the dual-screen aspect.

Actually yes that's what people wanted a squeal to the game not a port that most fans already own. You can make a spin-off in the series, add more to the story but this is coming from a guy that's waited 17 years for a squeal to chrono trigger.

They could have a sequel with a new cast, they could have a prequel with a different cast, they could redo the game with some of the other characters as the main characters to see it from a different perspective, There is plenty they could do. The idea behind the story and world allowed them to go in many different directions with a sequel or a prequel.

Weh, Still looks cool. Only problem is I don't have an iPhone/iPad. I'll still be waiting for a 3ds release.

Chrono Trigger had a sequel years ago on PS1. Chrono Cross. Look it up.

Anyways, there are plenty of ways a sequel could go, especially since spoiler[Hanekoma became a fallen angel to help Minamimoto], plus it was a self-contained game, but a sequel easily could be made.

Pity it costs more than the game to ship it to my country :/

But thanks for the heads up. I might actually end up buying it cause it seems to be at least 12 euros cheaper than before.

I was PISSED to find out it wasn't a new game. I was expecting at least a spinoff, that could work, if not a full sequel. Was the countdown and all of that really necessary? For a port? Goddamn it SquareEnix...

I'm not pissed the countdown was for a port. I'm just fine with TWEWY being a glorious one hit wonder. It's the best game on the DS, for sure. The story wrapped up nicely, and more sequels would just milk it and make it less special.

I always say "I want another TWEWY" from Square, but unlike most people, I don't mean a sequel. I mean a brand new IP with a completely different gameplay system. TWEWY was so unique because it could only work on the system it was designed for and nothing else. Even as an iPhone port, they've had to change the gameplay considerably. I want more unique ideas like that, and Square proved they can still work that old magic when they made TWEWY.

If it were cheaper, I just might double dip since the battle seems fairly different. That music makes me want to play it again, as does seeing the gang in KH3D.

I'll be telling everyone how I'm disappointed, and that SquareEnix can't provide gamers with what they expect this days but, DAMN, I'll buy this crap anyway! I can't imagine how I'll be playing it on Ipad's screen but whatever. At least they changed one battle system to another. And I really want to try it out!

Actually, with this they can easily port Subaseka not only on 3DS, but on Vita too! This would be awesome! But I don't expect something like this to happen.
