Nintendo Direct has confirmed that CHRONO CROSS Remaster will be finally available for the fans in April. The new edition is titled CHRONO CROSS: THE RADICAL DREAMERS EDITION. It is speculated that the game will be unveiled during Nintendo events and will be available on Playstation and Xbox.
Last year during the Game Awards 2021, there was doubt whether CHRONO CROSS Remaster will be available or not but now, the doubt is all cleared with the latest announcement.
CHRONO CROSS Remaster: Features
CHRONO CROSS: THE RADICAL DREAMERS EDITION is a remaster of CHRONO CROSS. The game will convert the 3D models into HD and further will feature high-quality background music and a battle enhancement feature is also promised. In the latest edition, more than 40 party members meet, and dimensions and people will intertwine to ensure that the epic drama survives about the Earth.
In addition to that, the character illustrations will be refined and the player will get the ability to switch on and off the enemy encounters. A background filter feature will also be made available in the game along with a battle enhancement feature to make fighting easier.
In addition to that, it will also support an auto-battle function. Also, the player will be able to change the screen function and switch between HD fonts and imitation pixel fonts.
