It’s official now!

After almost 7 years of development
and over 3 years of Early Access,
CrossCode will finally hit Version 1.0 on September 20, 2018!!

Which by the way is still totally in Summer!

What to expect

The full release will be huge and by far the biggest update the game has had so far.

Here is a list of things you can expect from CrossCode 1.0:

  • The complete main story with at least twice the amount of cutscenes
  • Awesome and dramatic plot moments™
  • A complete new area + dungeon + several extensions in existing areas
  • Rhombus Square – the largest city of the game
  • New party members!
  • Over 9 new enemy types + more variations
  • Over 13 new boss fight and other major battles
  • About 12 new quests
  • Several menu improvements and QoL additions
  • A complete German translation
  • Countless other small improvements/changes

Also hopefully less buggy than previous major releases, since we do some internal testing this time!

Other features that we still hope to finish but are not 100% certain yet:

  • Steam Achievements
  • Steam Trading Cards

We will try our best to implement these in time for the 1.0 release. If we won’t make it, however, you can expect these features to be added very soon in a follow-up update. Don’t worry about achievements, the game already tracks all achievements internally, so you will still get all the Steam achievements you already collected before the update.

Soundtrack Release

CrossCode 1.0 will also come with over 20 new music tracks! With this, the complete soundtrack will include a total of 64 tracks. And of course you will be able to buy that one, too!

The Original Soundtrack of CrossCode will be released together with version 1.0! Available on Steam and Bandcamp!

If you like the music of CrossCode and would like to support our composer Deniz ‘Intero’ Akbulut, you can already preorder the soundtrack on Bandcamp today!

Beyond Version 1.0

Development on CrossCode won’t stop right at the 1.0 release. There are several feature and content we promised and we plan to keep that promise.

Most of the following content will be released as a free update after the 1.0 release:

  • A New Game+ mode that allows you to restart the game in a special manner (details still open)
  • Several additional NPCs, quests, and enemies that we promised to our Indiegogo backers
  • The Last Minute Hero Guild that (ironically) we decided not to implement in the last minute.
  • More maps for Rhombus Square and a few more quests that didn’t quite make it for version 1.0
  • The Arena in Rhombus Square! The least you can expect is a boss rush mode among other things!

Beyond that, we have a long, long list of stupid ideas and other content we’d love to add to the game, most likely as a DLC of sorts. But this of course depends on how the release will work out. So no promises on that yet!

…And that’s pretty much it!
Now it’s time for the final phase of development!

Until next time!

  • GO RADICAL FISH GAMES, YOU’RE GETTING THERE ! Best of luck with the final rush until the release (don’t crunch too hard though) ! I’m eager to play with Lea and her friends again.

    All the best, cheers ♥

  • YES! YES YES YES! I’m so completely ecstatic about playing CrossCode 1.0. You guys have come such a long way and made one of the most enjoyable games I’ve ever experienced. <3

  • I love what you guys have put out. When I played this game in early access, I knew you guys were making something really special. Here’s hoping you guys get the recognition you deserve. But even if you don’t, be proud that you all have created an absolutely amazing game!

    Congratulations guys! Your determination will pay off I’m sure :)

    One question: will I have to restart the game and lose my progress in order to see all the new cutscenes and story quests?

    Thanks for all your hard work!

    WOO! Looking forward to this !

    Had a save sync issue long while back so turned it off, then a hdd reset losing my saves… so at this point, just gonna sit tight and look forward to doing this back from the start …!

    Btw will the 1.0 subsequently remove the ability to skip to later stages of the game in a new game file ….?

  • Yay finally!
    After playing Velsabor, trying the first techdemo of Crosscode, pledging for it on Indiegogo, it’s now going to be released on 20th september – on my birthday!?!

    Danke Radical Fish Games this is going to be an amazing birthday!

    I want to marry Radical Fish. >.>

  • Good luck to everyone on the Radical Fish Games team! <3

  • Hobestly cant name another game that envoked such a passion in me. Ftom the moment i ended the demo for the 18th time I realized that if i dont get this game and stop playing the demo imma lose it. I cant say how much joy this game gave me and how much it managed to influence me. CHEERS to the release and hopefully more to come.

    and if your open to ideas for the new game+ then how about you add manlea and shizuka as a playable character?

  • This sound fantastic.
    Congratualtions to the team!

    P.S: Galaxy achievements for GOG users, pleaseeeeee ;)
    I’m sure there will be some users that would like to have that feature.

  • Hey, awesome! So excited for the full release :D

    I backed the game in the Indiegogo campaign as an “Auditor – EARLY BIRD” – will I get the soundtrack for free on CrossCode central?

  • OH HECK YEAH!!! Get hype! I’m ready to finally be able to play through the whole game. I know it will be awesome because you all have worked so hard. Hope the best for you guys!

  • if this game doesn’t go down as one of the best indie games ever, I’ll eat my hat.

  • It’s like the climax of a shōnen manga! Gambatte Radical-kun!
