Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition

Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition is considerably less linear than many other modern Japanese role-playing games available on Nintendo Switch and Steam Deck. While most games feature a limited number of playable characters and a single ending, the second entry in the Chrono series features over 40 playable characters, some of them available only in certain story paths, and multiple endings.

Here’s how many endings are available in Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition.

How Many Endings are in Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition?

Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition features 12 different endings, but not all of them can be unlocked during your first playthrough, as you will need to play through the game again in New Game Plus mode to unlock most of them.

In your first Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition playthrough, you can only unlock two different endings. The first one can be unlocked by defeating the final boss without using the Chrono Cross, and the second one by using it, which can be a little challenging if you do not have a good grasp of some of the game’s combat mechanics.

After completing the game, regardless of the ending, you will unlock New Game Plus. In this mode, you will be able to fight against the Time Devourer at any time, and doing so before or after certain events will unlock the remaining 10 endings.

Here’s how to unlock all the endings in Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition. There are heavy spoilers after this point, so avoid reading until you have completed the game at least once.
