Square Enix has announced that Live A Live is now available worldwide for the Nintendo Switch.
The classic RPG first released almost 30 years ago in Japan and unfortunately never officially released worldwide. Now, the game has been reborn in the much-celebrated HD-2D style and is ready to take the experience to Nintendo Switch owners around the world.
In celebration of this momentous occasion, Producer Takashi Tokita and Composer Yoko Shimomura have shared some heartfelt messages to the players as the game goes live.
Additionally, a final trailer was also unveiled to raise the hype levels even further.
Here’s an overview of Live A Live:
Seven stories featuring seven time periods, protagonists, and gameplay variations—in what order you progress and how you proceed is up to you.
LIVE A LIVE features character designs by acclaimed manga artists Gosho Aoyama, Osamu Ishiwata, Yoshinori Kobayashi, Kazuhiko Shimamoto, Yumi Tamura, Yoshihide Fujiwara, and Ryouji Minagawa. In addition, it includes new art by Octopath Traveler’s Naoki Ikushima, and majestic musical rearrangements carried out under the supervision of the original composer, Yoko Shimomura. Moreover, the original director, Takashi Tokita, has returned as producer to oversee development in its entirety.
