Chrono Cross Remaster.
Speculations have persisted for months that Square Enix was ready to bring back their classic RPG Chrono Cross, and as it turns out, those rumours were genuine. At the recent Nintendo Direct presentation, Square Enix made the stunning disclosure that a Chrono Cross remaster was in development and slated for release in April, named Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition.
The Radical Dreamers Edition is an HD remaster of the original Chrono Cross game. The introduction teaser showed off upscaled graphics and promised a reworked soundtrack, but otherwise didn’t reveal much about what fans may anticipate from the final game. Square Enix has subsequently followed up the initial announcement trailer with further specifics about what the Chrono Cross remake would consist of, confirming it for PC, PS4, and Xbox One along with the previously-announced Nintendo Switch version in the process. As explained by Square Enix, Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition is a graphical enhancement over the original cause in a number of aspects. As was clear by the Chrono Cross remaster video, the facelift includes a dazzling new HD resolution, but it goes beyond that. Square Enix has claimed that the final game will contain updated character illustrations, a background filter feature, the ability to choose between pixel text and HD font, and the opportunity for players to modify their screen resolution.
Rounding out the Chrono Cross remaster presentation is the updated soundtrack that Square Enix previously touched on, although many fans may be more eager in discovering what gameplay enhancements it’s bringing to the table. Fans should be able to expect a gaming experience comparable to what they recall from playing the game on the PS1, but there will be some new conveniences. Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition will let players alter the battle to better suit how they want to play the game. Someone that merely wants to experience the Chrono Cross storey can switch opponent encounters off, or they can speed up combat as well. Other, undisclosed features are being employed to make combat easier, and there’s also an auto-battle capability that gamers can take use of.
On top of all this, the Chrono Cross remake includes an English-language version of Radical Dreamers, a text-adventure game that has narrative parallels to Chrono Cross. Radical Dreamers was previously only available in Japan, so it finally making its way to other territories is undoubtedly a significant thing for dedicated fans of the game.
