There's a lot of talk going around that the game is really just an emulated version, even has the CDROM.dat files inside the data folder...hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Just some dat files with the game files inside it.



Looks like this port has been in the works since 2019, going by the files timestamp lol.

I believe there was a Nvidia leak or dump somewhere around 2019 (or 2020?) that leaked CC getting a remaster or update of some kind, along with another Onimusha game that has been hush hush so far.

I bought the game on PSN and my goodness those new tracks at the main menu are beautiful. Love the artwork too, and I actually find it interesting that Leena is next to Serge, and Kid was down in front. Of course you got Guile in the back too, cuz Magus  :wink:

Speaking of Magus, has anyone played up to the part with Kid reading the letter from Lucca? Was that character shadow still there?

Shadow's still there...

I hope someone finds a way to rip the backgrounds from the Remaster, some of them are pretty well touched up.

Also, this shows up in the game now after Terra Tower. I can't remember if it showed up in the original game, but I seem to remember reading that the text was in the game files but never displayed. Well, now it is.

Still can't re-enter it or anything... but neat I guess.

https://www.rpgsite.net/news/12648-chrono-cross-the-radical-dreamers-edition-has-a-new-hidden-post-credits-scene

This article says there's a new post credits scene if you beat both Chrono Cross and Radical Dreamers?!?

I didn't read it because of spoilers and I'm still working through the game, but you can read the first half of the article before it goes into the clearly marked spoilers.

Itís a pretty boring ending, plain text on a black screen. So much for effort. Didnít read it all, but itís Magil related, probably something to make a closer connection between him and Guile.

Also figured out what pressing the right stick does btw. It doesnít increase enemies on the map, or even in battle. Just maxes out all charactersí element level right from the start of the battle. Guess all the Dreamerís accesories are uttery pointless now.

Edit: Pressing the right stick has even more functions. Your stamina level never depletes, and also any attack enemies make against you will miss and do zero damage. Guess they added God mode. Because Chrono Cross was such a hard game.

Out of curiosity, since I haven't played it yet--
Most screenshots have that copyright text in the bottom. That's only on screenshots...right?

Yeah, it is. That does not show up in-game.

I saw the post credit scene today. Looks like some Magil's thoughts.
By itself, there's nothing much about it. The secret final in DS CT tells much more.

The English Twitter account started posting answers, but the two answers currently posted are just translations of answers from the Japanese one. New information to you maybe, but not for me.

Thanks so much Vehek!
I know itís not much but hearing from the devs is always cool.

I had thought of a question, of course way after the fact since my brain has been garbage latelyÖ but a good question to ask the team wouldíve been to directly ask Kato-san that if there was a new Chrono game that was in fact green-lit, do you have an idea ready to propose to management of what story you would want to tell? Did you write down somewhere notes or thoughts of the direction to take the events after Cross? before Trigger?

I kinda wish Famitsu wouldíve asked something like this since they have more media power, instead of just ask if a new game is potentially in the worksÖ


EDIT:

Thank you Beach Bum for confirming the shadow!
Iím glad it wasnít taken out.

For those like myself who haven't bought the new version yet, here are the new music tracks. The arrangement of the song from Radical Dreamers brought tears to my eyes. I never thought I'd hear it sound like that. It's at 6:40

Remaster does have some rough spots...

When collecting Funguy's lvl 7 tech, Serge's portrait is accidentally used when Funguy is talking, and during the first Orlha scene I think one of the writers was typing a little too fast...

At least Serge's butt is still intact.

Confirms that Serge FMV in Termina wasn't in fact based on any certain plot point, despite most parts of the FMV being part of the plot.

speaking of glitches, i somehow made Serge do the moon walk in viper manor when i went into the secret room of Belthasar's lab. He was moving in one angle and no matter which direction i move to, he was stuck northwest. i think i exited out of the menu quickly or talking to the Nu fast and suddenly he walked/ran stangely. it fixed itself after leaving the room.
