Chrono Cross: Radical Dreamers Edition frame rate resolution

Chrono Cross finally made a comeback this week with The Radical Dreamers Edition, and Digital Foundry has since taken a closer look at the remaster by examining aspects such as frame rate and resolution. Unfortunately, what Square Enix delivered is a bit of a mixed bag – especially due to disappointing performance.

It turns out that the game’s frame rate can go extremely low, performing even worse than the PS1 original. AI upscaling that was used also results in an image that doesn’t always look the best.

Square Enix is no stranger to unconventional game names, and that tradition has continued with their HD-2D titles on Switch – those being Octopath Traveler and Triangle Strategy. In a recent interview, producer Tomoya Asano shared some insight into the team’s thinking.

Asano told Inversus that Square Enix considers “if the player can imagine what kind of game it is based on the title.” With Triangle Strategy, you play it from three angles and it’s a strategic experience. Square Enix initially included “Project” so that there would be “a little bit of room to be able to change the name”. Since it was well-received by fans, the “Triangle Strategy” name stuck.

Asano’s full words:

System: Switch
Release date: March 4, 2022
Developer: Square Enix / Artdink
Publisher: Square Enix

Square Enix’s Team Asano has been a force to be reckoned with on Switch. Their debut on the system, Octopath Traveler, was a showpiece at the first real Switch blowout in January 2017 and released the following year to great acclaim. Returning to the glory of their 3DS days, the highly requested Bravely Default 2 came out just last year. Now the third entry in the team’s Switch JRPG trifecta returns to Octopath’s HD-2D style, but delivers gameplay so different that it might as well be considered a different genre. That certainly doesn’t hold it back however: different as it is, Triangle Strategy is a tremendous overall package and possibly Team Asano’s finest work yet.
