It Looks Like Square Enix Is Reviving Live A Live


One of the best parts of current gaming platforms is the ease of bringing over older titles that never found an audience or never made it into a wider release. We’ve recently seen games like Trials of Mana make their way West after originally being released only in Japan, and it looks like Square Enix is looking to continue the trend by reviving Live A Live according to a trademark listed in Australia (and initially reported by Gematsu).

You would be excused for never having heard of the game before. Originally released on the Super Nintendo in Japan only, the game was an anthology RPG following eight different protagonists on their own small adventures across the years. It was also the directorial debut of Takashi Tokata, who you might also know as the director of both Chrono Trigger and Parasite Eve.

Currently it’s unknown whether this will be a simple re-release on current platforms or something larger in scale, but even a simple port would be more than we’ve ever received of the game in the past. Stay tuned to Rocket Chainsaw in the future as we report on any further information on Live A Live as it becomes available.
