"Live A Live will offer 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. Each unique chapter will offer players a range of different gameplay mechanics to master, such as stealth, suspense, and trap placement, all of which center around Live A Live's turn-based battle system. 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 original game director of the Super Nintendo 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 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 XVThe Kingdom Hearts Series)."
