CHRONO CROSS THE RADICAL DREAMERS EDITION Party Recruitment

Eventually we will expand into the missable techniques and endings among other things cause reasons.

Branching Paths & New Game+

There are three major choices you will make in this game which will lock some party members from being recruited on the current playthrough.

  • Branch 1: Travelling with Kid.
  • Accept: Kid.
  • Reject: Leena, Kid.

Availability: Upon your first visit to Another World’s Cape Howl for the first time.

  • Branch 2: Choosing a guide.
  • Guile.
  • Pierre.
  • Nikki.

  • Branch 3: Save Kid or be an.

The real question you should be asking yourself is why this matters? You see, towards the end of each playthrough of this game you will be able to call back all allies you have recruited from previous playthroughs, which is the only way in which you can recruit ALL party members due to the branches above.

Managing to recruit all party members will give you a very special reward, but more on that some day.
