Fast-forward four years to 2000 when Square's PlayStation era was well underway. A full-blown sequel was announced for the PSX, called ''VideoGame/ChronoCross''. However, rather than being a brand-new game, it built off of elements from ''Radical Dreamers''. This included plenty of [[ShoutOut shout outs]], such as Viper Manor, Lynx, and the Frozen Flame, and lots of remixed music, including the main theme (which became the Alternate Universe theme, as opposed to the ''Chrono Trigger'' main theme which was the Home Universe theme). Despite the influence, ''Chrono Cross'' suggests ''Radical Dreamers'' is a (yet another) [[GaidenGame alternate dimension]] in the {{Canon}}; in Chronopolis, the party can actually find a terminal that repeats the ''Radical Dreamers'' introduction verbatim and the characters comment on it. In addition, the ending theme is called "Radical Dreamers: Le Tresor Interdit", a rough translation of the full title of the original.

RD contains one "main" story and, once it's finished, the ability to branch it off into seven [[SchrodingersGun wildly different]] stories which range from poignant to ridiculous.

A bit of history for you. In 1996, {{Squaresoft}} (now Square Enix) released ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'', a phenomenally successful {{RPG}} for the Super Nintendo. A sequel to ''Chrono Trigger'' was in the works for a while, but not in the way people might have expected. Rather than another console RPG, the sequel surfaced in the [[NoExportForYou Japan-only]] {{Satellaview}} add-on for the SNES. This little device allowed players to download content and games, in a remarkably prescient precursor to [[DownloadableContent current trends]] for home consoles, over ten years later.

* EarnYourBadEnding: It is ''much'' harder to get the bad ending in the initial scenario than it is the good one, since it's highly dependent on RelationshipValues, and the amount you need for Kid to trust you enough is so low you have actively fight to keep the value below the threshold.



* GoldenEnding: [[spoiler: At least two scenarios have their own, separate golden endings, alongside one to two other bad endings.]]]

** One of the MultipleEndings is specifically a long ShoutOut to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGtxQepoX-E Videogame/ZeroWing]] of all things.

* ContinuityCameo: Examining the purple book at the front of the library reveals a report of [[spoiler:the Neo Epoch (or "Neo Silbird"), better known as the time machine used by Belthasar in ''Chrono Cross'']]. Of course, Kid will think it's trash and scold Serge for not locating the book they need right away...



* InsaneEqualsViolent: Averted. Radius has clearly lost his marbles, but he's not violent at all.

* CanonDiscontinuity: Averted in an unusual way - ''Chrono Cross'' seemingly relegates the events of ''Radical Dreamers'' to an alternate dimension (as stated by character who inspect the monitor displaying a diary excerpt), and also believed due to the UpdatedRerelease of ''Chrono Trigger'' suggesting that the ''Chrono'' multiverse contains a nigh-infinite number of possible realities.
