Review: CrossCode – The Zelda-Like RPG You Never Knew You Wanted

A Role Playing Game Game.

A little over five years ago, a new studio named Radical Fish Games unveiled its dream concept for a new game. Called CrossCode, it promised to merge the RPG trappings and graphical style of ’90s SNES RPGs with the world and puzzle design of the Zelda series. An ambitious goal, to say the least, and one that approximately 2,326 backers (who collectively came up with a little over $100k) believed in enough and wanted to see being seen to completion. Luckily for us, it turns out Radical Fish Games made good on its promise, nailing the execution and delivering fans a quirky sort of RPG that hits all the right notes. Although this Switch version notably fumbles a bit on the performance side of things, we can confidently say that CrossCode is a wonderfully engaging RPG that’s more than worth your time.

After a deliberately confusing opening that picks up halfway through the story, the game focuses on an amnesiac girl named Lea, who’s an avatar for a fictional MMO called CrossWorlds. The big selling point of CrossWorlds, however, is the fact that the game does not take place in a fictitious, virtual world, but a real place that’s simply on another planet. The game’s characters, locales, and weapons are constructed from a mixture of ‘Instant Matter’ and augmented reality trickery, which combine to grant players the most immersive RPG experience ever.
