LIVE A LIVE for PS4, PS5, and Steam
LIVE A LIVE offers players the freedom to explore eight different stories with eight different characters, each set within different time periods spanning from a pre-historic era to the Wild West, and more. In addition to a unique and highly strategic battle system referred to as “checker battle system”, players can also enjoy mastering a wide variety of different gameplay mechanics in each chapter, such as stealth, suspense and trap placement. Players will also be able to tailor their gameplay adventure to their preference; the episodic story format gives players the freedom to complete each chapter from start to finish in any order they choose, or even play through a little of each chapter in parallel at the same time.
Produced by Takashi Tokita (Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy IV), the director of the original version, LIVE A LIVE has been revitalized using HD-2D technology that blends the nostalgia of pixel art with modern graphics, offering a classic RPG gameplay experience with updated visuals on both PS4, PS5 and PC. Players can also look forward to a rearranged version of the game’s soundtrack which has been recreated under the supervision of LIVE A LIVE’s original composer, Yoko Shimomura (Final Fantasy XV, Kingdom Hearts series).
