The new Radical Dreamers Edition arrives with a string of extras for Chrono Cross fans, though it’s far from an ideal remaster. For the PS4 release – as played on a PS5 in this video – performance is comparable to the 10-30fps range of the PlayStation original from 1999. Surprisingly there are points where it even descends to lower frame-rates in direct comparison, while using a new enhanced visuals mode. Tom and Audi reminisce over a true JRPG cult-classic – and speculate on what could have been.
