CrossCode had been announced to come to Nintendo Switch all the way back in January 2019. After a long wait full of delays and uncertainty, we finally have a release date of July 9, 2020. Here is the overview:
ININ Games, Deck13 and Radical Fish Games are very excited to announce that the captivating JRPG CrossCode is coming to Nintendo Switch and PlayStation®4. With more than 400.000 digital copies sold for PC, CrossCode is finally coming to consoles.

CrossCode is a retro-inspired 2D game that comes with a captivating sci-fi storyline and silky smooth physics. Magnificent worlds and a fast-paced combat system are combined with outstanding puzzle mechanics and lots of options for character growth. A strong main story and lots of side content allow you to spend up to 80 hours in the detailed, nostalgic pixel world.
CrossCode is set in the distant future, where you follow a player named Lea. Lea logs into a fictional MMO called CrossWorlds. Lea suffers from memory loss and is mute. The path to regain Lea’s memory is to play CrossWorlds, discover all the game locations and meet other players. Bit by bit as Lea’s memory returns, the mystery surrounding CrossWorlds will unravel – and you will discover why a mute player is stuck in this game in the first place.
CrossCode had seven years of community-driven development behind its creation and was hugely anticipated by a strong fanbase before its successful release on Steam.
