PS4 Chrono Cross The Radical Dreamers Edition Remaster First Gameplay
Chrono Cross Remaster First Gameplay Shown Days Before Release

The first gameplay footage for the upcoming Chrono Cross remaster, Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition, has finally been shown off only days away from its release this week. Some fans have already noticed technical issues pop up in the gameplay video, leading to a divisive reception.

The gameplay for Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition was recently posted by Japanese publication Famitsu, running on a PlayStation (though it’s unclear if it’s PS4 or PS5). No extended gameplay footage of the remaster had been shown following its announcement, so this is the first slice of actual gameplay that we’re getting mere days away from its 7 April release date.

The reception hasn’t been the most positive from fans following the publishing of this gameplay footage. Some have noted that the framerate dips to as low as 15fps during combat and seems wildly inconsistent while simply traversing the world. One fan noted that the framerate actually fluctuates between 60fps and 15fps during combat sections.

The overworld gameplay appears to be more stable, but battles are already being criticised for their lower framerates making for an inconsistent and messy looking experience. However, it’s also possible that this could be a slightly earlier build of the game before any patches, so we may need to wait until launch to see if these problems are rectified.

Some welcomed changes being brought to the remaster include the ability to avoid random battles and speed up combat encounters, among many other quality of life and visual improvements.

Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition isn’t available for pre-order yet on PlayStation, but fans can already pre-order it on Nintendo Switch instead.

Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition launches on 7 April 2022 for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. Check out the full Famitsu gameplay footage below.
