About Chrono Cross in brief
Chrono Cross is a 1999 role-playing video game developed and published by Square for the PlayStation video game console. It is set in the same world as Chrono Trigger, which was released in 1995 for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Players advance the game by controlling the protagonist Serge through the game’s world, primarily by foot and boat. Upon its release in Japan in 1999 and North America in 2000, Chrono Cross received critical acclaim, earning a perfect 10. 0 score from GameSpot. The game shipped over 1. 5 million copies worldwide, leading to a Greatest Hits re-release and continued life in Japan as part of the Ultimate Hits series. It was later re-released in July 2011, and in North America four months later. In Japan, the game is still available as a download for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable owners, but not for the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3. It has not been released in the U.S. or Europe yet, but it is expected to be in the near future. For more information about the Greatest Hits series, visit the official website. The PlayStation Network version of the game can be downloaded for free from the PlayStation Network store for the PS3 and PS4. It will also be available in the UK and Europe from the end of the year for £19.99 ($24.99) and £25.99 (for the PS4 and Xbox 360) with a limited edition of 20,000 copies. It can also be pre-ordered for $99 ($99) in the US and $99 in the EU. It features no random encounters; enemies are openly visible on field maps or lie in wait to ambush the party.
Battles are turn-based, allowing the player unlimited time to select an action from the available menu. The Element system handles all magic, consumable items, and character-specific abilities. Elements can be purchased from shops or found in treasure chests littered throughout areas. Once acquired, they are allocated to a grid whose size and shape are unique to each character. As the game progresses, the grid expands, allowing more Elements to be equipped and higher tiers to be accessed. Each character and enemy has an innate color, enhancing the power of using same Elements, while also making them weak against elements of the opposite color. If the player loses all hit points, he or she faints. At the beginning of each battle, each character has seven stamina points. Consumable Elements may be used to restore hit points or heal status after battle. The battle screen also features a corner screen, which keeps track of Element color used in the upper corner of the battle screen. The player is able to unleash a powerful summon element at the cost of one of the player’s stars at the corner corner. The power of the field field will also enhance the strength of the colors present, while weakening the opposite colors of the Elements of the present. Like ChronoTrigger, the player can also learn some special techniques to make more powerful characters.
