Deck13 has just released Radical Fish Games’ hit retro-inspired action-RPG CrossCode to consoles.
After nearly nine years of development and a four year Early Access phase, CrossCode released on Steam and GOG back in September 2018. Inspired by classic games from the SNES era, CrossCode is set in a virtual reality MMO called CrossWorlds. You play as Lea, a mute girl that is playing through CrossWorlds in the hopes that she can regain her lost memories.

CrossCode will also be getting physical editions soon. You can learn more, and place pre-orders, on the official website.
