Square Enix has clarified that the upcoming Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreams Edition will not feature the original game’s soundtrack.
It was originally believed that users would have a choice of switching between a revamped version of the score and the original edition, although this is not apparently the case. Instead, Chrono Cross Remaster will only feature the ‘refined’ version.
This was confirmed in an edit to the game’s announcement press release:
This article originally incorrectly stated that users can switch between the original and remastered soundtracks. Please note that this was in error and only the refined music can be played.
Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition is pencilled in for an April 7, 2022 release on PS4, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One.
The original Chrono Cross was released in Japan in 1999 and arrived in the US and Europe in 2000, and is considered one of the best RPGs of all time. The game features a diverse cast of more than 40 playable party members, and as strategically-driven turn-based combat system that encourages players to master elements and stamina.
