RADICAL DREAMERS – Le Trésor Interdit –
“RADICAL DREAMERS – Le Trésor Interdit -” was released in 1996 as a standalone game, and has not been easily accesible for play in recent years. Players can experience the story that went on to become the basis for CHRONO CROSS in an audio novel format. Here, an alternate story of the RADICAL DREAMERS, a group of three thieves – Serge, Kid and Magil – unfolds in a parallel world.
*You can switch between the new and old versions of the 3D models and illustrations.
*The 3D models, illustrations, font and background filter cannot be toggled separately. They will all be switched together.
The physical version of Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition for Switch will be releasing in Asia on April 26, 2022. Pre-orders should be opening soon – we’ll let you know when listings go up.
Update (3/28): Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition Switch physical pre-orders have opened on Play-Asia here.
