Live A Live with Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition OIFLive A Live with Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition OIF

Square showed us a few games in the direct, including these two(three) older ones with Live A Live the OG Octopath Traveller as it has 8 different stories set in different 8 time periods, which is getting a western release for the first time with a 2D-HD Remake. The price on the eShop is £40, but then I'm comparing it to Octopath and this LAL is new but does seem a lot, but hey maybe a physical version comes out (Japan is getting one).

It was directed by Takashi Tokita who also directed Chrono Trigger (Where is this on my Switch, Square?) in which you travel time (like Live A Live) and would get sequels in the other game's in the direct Chrono Cross: Radical Dreamers. I say other games as this version coming is an remaster of Radical Dreamers from the Satellaview and Chrono Cross from the PS1 combined into one collection (Also why we've seen Chrono Cross in mobile game Another Eden, me thinks).

I've not played any of these three games, but I know of them all and their pedigree that I am certainly keen for them all.

I didn't realise Live A Live was as old as it was, so I hope it still plays well and isn't stuck in the SNES era from a gameplay standpoint. It certainly looks very interesting and I'm keen to give it a try.

While I do see the sense behind it, I don't think it's quite fair on Live A Live (which looks banging) to lump it in the same thread with Chrono Cross (which doesn't really), and certainly not only putting a Chrono Cross logo in the OP! I'm moderately interested in both, but at this point LAL is a SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY prospect and CC:RDE is one to wait and see on.

I didn't think either big enough to have own threads, and the logic was both older Square RPG's coming this year, which might just be me but if a fan of one likely the other.

Maybe so. The OP is better now anyway. I hope I'm a fan of both.

Apprantly Nintendo are publishing Live A Live and a physical version up for preorder at Gamestop, that's all good news.

I'd never heard of Live A Live before the direct but they really managed to sell me on it, seems a interesting concept with it basically being 7 or 8 different games in one, will definitely be keeping an eye for a physical version, seems like something that won't have a massive print run.

I'm definitely more interested in Live A Live than Chrono Cross!

Yeah, just little surprised but LAL is new to all of us, that does make some sense.

Least out different times, play Chrono Cross, talk about it, then do same for Live A Live and maybe mix in some Front Mission 1st.

Judging by the reaction to that in the Discord voice chat during the Direct, nobody is picking that up here. Laughing

I saw that Megalovania was originally based on a boss battle theme from Live A Live which is a fun little titbit.

I loved Chrono Trigger when I played it on DS years ago, but don't think I could be any more non-plussed about Chrono Cross. I guess in part because it just never made waves in the same way.

It's not only that though! LAL has been re-painted in the lurvely Octopath HD2D style. Meanwhile the Chrono Cross 'remake' looks... well, like a game from 1999. Or a Kemco RPG.

Now that's harsh on Chrono Cross, which is also a remaster.

Even less reason for it to be spoken of in the same breath IMHO.

Well done now and like I said least out different times, play Chrono Cross, talk about it, then do same for Live A Live and maybe mix in some Front Mission 1st (Okay maybe not this one).
