Chrono Cross takes place a few years after Lucca's time in Chrono Trigger. The predecessor of Chrono Cross, Chrono Trigger, used time travel as its main concept. This time around, Chrono Cross uses parallel dimensions. How the two dimensions exist is a long story, one that I'll leave for the game. True to the dimensions concept, you'll see two versions of most characters, which provides a laugh when you bring a character to meet his or her alter ego in the other dimension. |
Serge was just talking with his sweetheart Lena at the beach one day, when Serge suddenly had some kind of a vision. Dazed, the next thing he noticed was a big wave coming his way. When Serge came to, Lena was nowhere to be found. Going back to his village, Serge found it totally changed. No one seems to recognize him at all, not even his mother or Lena. This signals the beginning of things to come, which will change the lives of just about everyone involved.......and also provide you with a nice, confusing story to figure out.
One interesting sidestory concerns the Grandleon, or better known as Masamune to most people. This legendary sword is back in Chrono Cross, but its look is not the only thing different about it. It seems to have turned evil due to something, and possesses anyone who uses the sword. Still the most powerful weapon, this causes one hell of a problem. Lives have been shattered just by holding this weapon.
