Apparently, it's not Dragon Quest but a new game called "Dargon Quest IV".

Have you never heard of Chrono Cross?

Yeah. Never played it (never had a Playstation, and didn't care enough to emulate it), but naturally I read about it/saw screenshots and wasn't very interested. Totally different characters, not a 2D adventure (I wish they could remake CT in all its 16-bit glory at maybe 1.5x-2x the resolution), and just not what I was looking for.

There was a 3D remake of the project which came along quite far until Square sent them a C&D like 5-6 years into its development.

I have played Chrono Trigger: Crimson Echoes. Which was kind of fun :)

Wouldn't changing the aspect ratio/increasing horizontal pixels require an entire rewiring of the game? And I feel like to do that they'd have to go back to the original assembly code that's being emulated and start mucking around. I doubt there are too many people these days still up to doing that.
