Legendary developer Square Enix is delivering Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition. The title is a remaster of their acclaimed title of the same name, a game that originally was described as a masterpiece and was figured in multiple “Top 100 Games” lists throughout the years. With an impending release on April 7th, the title is coming to Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC.
Transcending Time and Space
The quote above actually was used to describe Chrono Cross in its original release. The funny part is that the game itself made such an impact, that it did transcend time and space, to a remaster. While a younger audience might be unaware of the magnitude of the title, there is nothing wrong with saying this is what propelled Square Enix to stardom. Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition is a role-playing game that has heavy influences on the JRPG genre. From its visuals to the turn-based combat style players can really feel it.
The game was one of the first of its kind where players had to reset back whenever their party was wiped out the game ended and had to be restarted from a previous chapter. At the time its graphics were applauded and players were excited to uncover the world. Enemies were never randomized and combat was more often than not something the player chose to dive into.
For those familiar with JRPGs the game will feel just like home, and for those unfamiliar, it might as well since the combat, the camera, and the overall concepts of combat were replicated countless times through various titles. Chrono Cross has a very interesting leveling-up system where players get a set number of upgrades they can boast. This number is increased throughout the game every time a boss battle is concluded, thus ensuring the game has a steady difficulty curve.
It’s a Party Between Dimensions
The protagonist of the game is Serge, a blue-haired boy that lives in a fishing village when he suddenly is transported to an alternate world. The kickstart of the adventure revolves around his willingness and curiosity to understand what happened. The really interesting part however is how intricate, complex and well-written the overarching story is. Of course, the traditional tropes of mythical powers, dubious characters, and everything else, but the themes of betrayal, loyalty, friendship, and time travel are remarkable all around.
Players can expect a very enticing and compelling experience. As they travel between two worlds in the shoes of Serge, they will also become fascinated about how those worlds came to be. The vastness of having two worlds is not just a plot point, in Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition there are over forty-five party members for players to recruit. If nowadays having such a large roster with unique abilities, and skills are rare, this accomplishment itself pushed the limits on gaming. This guarantees that replayability is high
