There’s even more movement regarding Live A Live, Square’s Japan-exclusive JRPG. On July 2, 2020, Square Enix filed an Australian trademark for the Super Famicom game. Now on July 6, 2020, a Live A Live European trademark has been filed by the company with the European Union Intellectual Property Office. [Thanks, Gematsu!]
As with the Australian trademark, Square Enix filed this Live A Live European trademark with no fanfare. There have also been no announcements made by the company regarding the game and it seems there’s no movement in North America yet.
Live A Live is a JRPG with eight chapters. The first seven take place in different points and places in time. For example, the “earliest” story in the collection involves a caveman who saves a woman who was meant to be a sacrifice to a god, while the “latest” one follows a robot on a space ship dealing with a monster that somehow freed itself and is attacking the humans onboard. Each of the seven protagonists’ stories have a common thread, which players piece together as they go through the game.
Live A Live is available on the Super Famicom in Japan. On its 20th anniversary in 2015, it was released on the Wii U Virtual Console in Japan. September 2, 2020 will mark its 26th anniversary.
