Chrono Cross was released back in 1999 on the original PlayStation and tells the story of Serge, who one day wanders into an alternate world. The game is set in the same world as Chrono Trigger and is linked.

Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition is released digital only in most regions. However in Asia a physical version will be released. If you want a physical version (like me), you can order it at Playasia.

Earlier this week a list containing a lot of unannounced games has been leaked from NVIDIA GeForce NOW servers by developer Ighor July. The list contains some interesting titles from Square Enix.

Some other unannounced Square Enix titles in the list are Kingdom Hearts IV, Chrono Cross Remaster and Tactics Ogre Remaster. And Dragon Quest X Online/Offline which has never released outside of Japan.

NVIDIA has released a statement:

NVIDIA is aware of an unauthorized published game list, with both released and/or speculative titles, used only for internal tracking and testing. Inclusion on the list is neither confirmation nor an announcement of any game.

NVIDIA took immediate action to remove access to the list. No confidential game builds or personal information were exposed.

Is this list legit? I hope so.

The full list can be watched here (with thanks to SteamDB’s Pavel Djundik).

On the American PlayStation Blog Square Enix has announced the release dates of Chrono Cross, Final Fantasy V and Final Fantasy VI on the American PlayStation Network.
