A remastered Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition is coming to PS4 and other platforms this year. The remastered version includes enhanced visuals, artwork and music. The Radical Dreamers Edition will also include Radical Dreamers – Le Trésor Interdit – the Chrono Trigger spin-off title that inspired Chrono Cross. The game will be released digitally in April 2022 for PS4, as well as Xbox One and PC via Steam. Pre-orders are currently open on the official Square Enix website†
What is the release date of Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition?
Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition will be released on April 7, 2022. Some notable improvements include improved models and fonts for high-definition displays. Original character designer Nobuteru Yuuki also returned to create all-new character artwork and artwork for the game. In addition, the original composer Yasunori Mitsuda has also refined much of the game’s soundtrack for a clearer listening experience.
If you don’t like the changes, don’t worry. Square Enix also lets players choose between playing with all the improvements or exactly as it was when Chrono Cross came out in 2000. And if you didn’t like the enemy encounter system from the original game, you can take them out with the Radical Dreamers Edition. There will also be other quality of life improvements, such as an automatic combat feature and combat speed settings.
Notably, Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition will also include Radical Dreamers – Le Trésor Interdit; a spin-off title released in 1996 for the Super Famicom. Originally intended as an extra story for Chrono Trigger, Radical Dreamers eventually became the inspiration for Chrono Cross. Since the game required the Japan-exclusive Satellaview peripherals to play, there has never been a western release until now.
