Last night during the latest Nintendo Direct, Square Enix announced Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition. This is a remastered release of the original Chrono Cross that will be coming not only to the Nintendo Switch but also to the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. This remaster will be out on April 7, 2022.

The original game was released back in 1999, which is probably long before some readers were probably born. That's a bit of a sobering thought there. Given how much time has passed, it stands to reason that there will be some graphical improvements made to the game that modernize it slightly while still retaining the core essence of the original.
