Publisher Deck13 has announced that, after spending over two years in Steam Early Access, CrossCode will finally be seeing a full release next month.

Having already sold over 100,000 copies and receiving enough praise in its 3000+ reviews to land it in the “Overwhelmingly Positive” category on Steam, CrossCode is a 16-bit, top-down adventure game that combines action and puzzle mechanics, and has a heavy developer emphasis on ensuring that players are given a quality gameplay experience. The original demo for CrossCode was release back in 2015, allowing players to play through a good chunk of the game while the rest of it was still in development.

Deck13 has stated that the full release will come in the form of a sizable update, and will include the final part of the story — which is estimated to have more than twice as much story content as the current version does — new regions to explore, more enemies and bosses to take down, and plenty other surprises as well. They promise to their players that this upcoming content will be of the same quality as the rest of the game, hopefully giving fans something to seriously look forward to.



CrossCodeis slated to leave Steam Early Access and enter its official full release next month, on September 20. How many of you out there are CrossCode fans? Are you looking forward to finally being able to play the rest of the game? Let us know in the comments below!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
