Irish singer and songwriter AVA recently spilled some interesting tidbits about an upcoming game announcement! According to AVA, she’s wrote a song for a “big” PlayStation remake that will be announced this December. Here’s what she had to say, courtesy of Gematsu:

“Yeah, so that actually happened about a year and half—it was just after the pandemic hit. Michael McGlynn got in touch and just said, ‘Listen, we’re writing music for a remake of a PlayStation game’—and he’s done that a lot, he’s done a lot of writing for different games that are very well known. But I’m actually not a gamer myself.
“So anyway, he says, ‘Look, it’s an Irish language piece that they’re looking for.’ So really what I was involved with was the lyric writing in the Irish language, and his daughter sang on the track and his wife arranged part of the choral parts, and so did Michael. And he also worked with me on the language side of things, so it was almost like a family effort.
“For ages I wasn’t allowed to really—you don’t know what you’re writing for, it’s all kind of undisclosed because they don’t want it to get out. So it’s actually going to be announced at Christmas—the name of the game. I have heard of it now and I have confirmed it is a big game, which is great! It’s going to be an Irish language piece in the game, which is brilliant.”

To add more fuel to the fire, famed composer Yasunori Mitsuda and his label PROCYON STUDIO actually worked with Michael McGlynn and his daughter Aisling for music in a new project back in August. It’s possible that this project AVA was referring to could be one in the same. For now, its best to wait and see what comes later this year.
The popular suspected choices are: Chrono Cross, Xenogears, or Metal Gear Solid 1.

In order of my interest: Chrono Cross > MGS1 >>>>>>>>> XG.

I do not want a Xenogears remake. I love MGS1, it has a huge place in my heart, but I've made peace with the MGS series and me parting ways. I could live with an MGS1 remake. I do not trust a XG remake to not ruin my childhood, especially since Takahashi and Saga no longer work at Square.

CC is a game I really like and if they kept its great battle system, I'd be very curious about it.
