Fortunately, Chrono Cross will finally have a remastered version hitting the shelves in the form of The Radical Dreamers Edition for the Nintendo Switch.

Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition will remain faithful to the original title. However, Square Enix has sought to incorporate a fair amount of quality-of-life upgrades and graphical improvements into the game.

The remastered edition will allow players to turn off enemy encounters. This will make it significantly easier for new fans to get into the game if exploring and enjoying the story is their primary focus.
