Live A Live Will Be Re-Released On Virtual Console For Its 20th Anniversary


livealiveAfter designing Final Fantasy IV, Takashi Tokita went on to direct his first game, a Japan-only RPG called Live A Live. This creative title had seven seemingly separate storylines ranging from a kung-fu tale to a Western. The modern day chapter is essentially Street Fighter imagined as a JRPG.


Live A Live will celebrate its 20th anniversary this year and Square Enix has plans for this lesser known gem. The Super Famicom game will be re-released on Virtual Console, most likely Wii U Virtual Console, in the future.


This will be the first re-release of Live A Live ever. While Square Enix brought their Final Fantasy library to Wii and even quirky games like Treasure Hunter G, Live A Live was not re-released.
