Chrono Cross


Chrono Cross

CHRONO CROSS, the sequel to the SNES favorite CHRONO TRIGGER, is one of the most ambitious role-playing games ever made. There are over 40 playable characters, each with their back-story, special moves, abilities, and weapons. The story spans two discs and follows the story of Serge, a young man who is able to cross dimensions. Suddenly he is pulled between worlds, trying to figure out his own past at the same time. The graphics are bright and beautiful, utilizing the PlayStation's capabilities to the fullest. The polygonal character models are huge and detailed, and the pre-rendered backgrounds are immaculately detailed. The music is composed and arranged by Yasunori Mitsuda, and features very realistic-sounding synthesizers. The battle system revolves around Elements, which are used to grant magical powers, as well as to summon huge monsters. For anyone that wanted to see the story of CHRONO TRIGGER continue, this is your chance.

A recreation of Chrono Cross on Unreal Engine 5 ridicules the remaster

While a remaster of Chrono Cross was released in early April, one fan raved about an Unreal Engine 5 recreation of the venerable J-RPG released in 1995.

And as much to say that the remaster pales in comparison to the work done by Studio Logic on the impressive fifth iteration of the Epic Games engine, recently accessible to all.

A recreation that leaves you dreaming

As we indicated in our test of the remaster, it turns out to be quite lazy and fails to do justice to the sublime artistic direction of an iconic title released almost thirty years ago. Fortunately, the talented Studio Logic has split its own vision of a remaster in due form thanks to the Unreal Engine 5 .

In the video above, we can thus see what the village of Arni would look like with the currently most cutting-edge graphics technologies. Those who have played the original game or the remaster will certainly notice the stark difference.

Studio Logic has also appropriated other iconic locations and elements from Chrono Cross , such as the sublime Opassa Beach in the video above. To see more of his remarkable work, head over to his YouTube channel, cited in source below.
