Chrono Cross Is This Month’s Pantheon Selection!

Good news, Disciples! Chrono Cross is the January 2022 selection for the Axe of the Blood God Pantheon! That means Kat and Nadia will record a deep dive into this classic RPG, just in time for a potential remake announcement! As usual, we’ll also host a Game Club over on the Blood God Discord, which you can access for $1!

First released in 2000 for PlayStation, Chrono Cross famously anchored Square’s “Summer of Adventure.” As the follow-up to Chrono Trigger, one of the most beloved RPGs of all time, it was found wanting by some fans, but many others loved it. Today it’s remembered for its dense story, amazing soundtrack, and other merits. But does it deserve to be in the Pantheon? That’s a big question, and one we’ll try to answer in the upcoming episode.

Pantheon of the Blood God is our monthly podcast in which we explore the very best in RPGs and determine whether they deserve to be enshrined in the Pantheon.  What merits inclusion? We’re looking for RPGs that are historically significant, still hold up in the modern era, and have a mark of greatness to them. Our previous episodes include explorations of Terranigma, Mass Effect, and Final Fantasy 8.

This past month we delved into Persona 5 with Michael Higham and Steven Strom of Fanbyte, which is available now to $10 Patrons. You can find previous episodes by clicking on the tag below. Thank you for your continued support of Axe of the Blood God, and we look forward to undertaking yet another journey with you as the podcast rolls into 2022!
