Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition Shares Messages From Composer Yasunori Mitsuda & Development Team

Square Enix has shared two messages regarding the soon-to-be-released Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition. The first of these messages is from the development team, most notably stating that this remaster was initially planned to occur 3 years ago during Chrono Cross’ 20-year anniversary, but numerous unspecified issues halted progress.

The second message comes from the game’s composer, Yasunori Mitsuda, stating that the general aim of this new sound design was to make the soundtrack clearer thanks to updated technology. Further, better atmospheric integration with the updated environments was a prominent factor alongside staying true to the original compositions. Thankfully, even with the one-month time limit the team had, efforts managed to bear fruit in time for the full release.

Chrono Cross follows Serge, who has just entered another world where he learns about the connection between his existence and the future of his planet. The game transcends time as players head out on an adventure friendship while meeting a massive cast of over 40 potential party members.

Chrono Cross was never released in Europe but now will arrive as a remastered release. This version of the game includes refined illustrations for the original character designer, Nobuteru Yuuki, remastered music from acclaimed composer Yasunori Mitsuda, and a variety of additional features.

Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam on April 7, 2022.
