Fans of RPG games received a lot of love in today’s Nintendo Direct. There were a lot of RPG and strategy games announced for the Nintendo Switch in the Direct. One of the RPGs announced was a remaster of Chrono Cross, which released on the PlayStation 1 in Japan in 1999, and in North America in 2000.
Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition will be releasing on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam in a couple of months, on April 7th. The official Chrono Cross Twitter account also tweeted the news, so we’ve included the tweet they posted for you to check out down below.
I have wanted an official release of Radical Dreamers for longer than some of our commenters have been alive.
Fun fact, “cronotose” evolved from one of my earliest email addresses, a haphazard Chrono Trigger reference.
This is a hype train announcement. I expect that like most of Square’s recent Switch rereleases, there’ll be a physical cart released in asian markets, but with all english options on cart.
Crono Cross, whooo whooo whooo YOU KNOW IT BROSKI. All aboard the hype train whooo whooo whooo!!!
Chrono Cross has always been on my list but I never got around to it. I’m looking forward to this edition.
Love playing classics, literally apart of my childhood. My favorite classics are .Hack G/U, Legend of mana and Secret of Mana. Also anticipating .Hack G/U for The Switch.
Would love a XenoGear and/or XenoSaga classic port or remaster.
Finally! I haven’t been this excited since the LFinally! I haven’t been this excited since the Legend of Mana remaster announcement and release!egend of Mana remaster announcement and release!

Finally. I’ll get to see if I’ll love the fact Chrono Cross completely abandons Magus, Crono, Marle, & Lucca’s potential roles in a Chrono Trigger sequel or if the game will reinforce why I don’t like Chrono Cross. To be fair to Chrono Cross, though, since the first game did have time travel, one could assume that Chrono Cross is just one possible alternate future. (Ugh… I want a direct sequel that brings Magus back!)
