The Beauty of Chrono Cross in HD Reminds Us We're Overdue for a Remaster

USGamer: “People might wag their finger at me for encouraging yet another port/remaster in an age where original IP's from triple-A developers are an endangered species. That's fair, but as far as Chrono Cross is concerned, a remaster also doubles as an act of game preservation. It's not an easy game to find and play. Currently, its status as a PSOne Classic means your options for a digital download are limited to the PSP/PS Vita and PlayStation 3. Even the original disc comes with caveats. I remember being unable to play my copy of the game on the PlayStation 2 despite its backwards compatibility.

Chrono Cross is worth preserving, too. Square Enix never made another game like it. Even its predecessor, the esteemed Chrono Trigger, is different. Chrono Cross' battle system still utilizes Tech attacks, but the combined strikes are no longer front-and-center. The Active Time Battle system gets the boot, and you no longer fight enemies where you meet them on the map. Instead, fights are carried out through a system that utilizes stamina points and color-coded affinities.”
