Game news The Nintendo Switch remake of a legendary game presents its characters in video
Last February, during Nintendo Direct, Square Enix announced with great fanfare the return of a legendary Super Nintendo game, Live A Live. A cult status acquired in Japan, since the title had never been entitled to a Western release. It had been entitled to an English translation by the fans, and it was necessary to wait for the official announcement of the remake to consider getting our hands on it in optimal conditions.
A cult game, varied eras, and a visually appealing remake
Expected for next July 22 on the console with 107.65 million copies sold, the Live a Live remake is an old-fashioned RPG revealing the adventures of eight characters in 2D-HD environments which obviously evoke the direction artwork of Octopath Traveler. The originality of the title is not based on its known game systems, but on the fact that each adventure takes place in a different period, ranging from the Edo era to the Wild West, passing through medieval times or even the future. .
Characters rooted in their times
And that’s good, since it is these eras, accompanied by their respective characters, which have recently been illustrated by Square Enix and published on the Nintendo channel. We are therefore invited to visit the Wild West and meet the Vagabond as well as the bounty hunter, the end of the Edo era with the Ninja and the prisoner, as well as the Near Future, in which we will cross paths with Akira the rebel, the rebel or even Taorimo, the turtle reincarnated as a robot (yes yes). In addition to this, players will be invited to take a look at prehistory, Imperial China, the present, or even the confines of the cosmos.
A long-standing project supported by big names
These new presentation videos, which you can find at the top of the article as well as in the body of the text, are accompanied by the song Go! Go! Hironobu Kageyama’s Buriki Daioh, a name that will evoke something for Dragon Ball Z fans!
If you are one of those who knew the game in 1994, know that the creator of Live A Live, Takashi Tokita, is very involved, and that he is accompanied by a renowned composer, Yoko Shimomura. The game will also benefit from the experience and graphic talent of Naoki Ikushima, already at work on Octopath Traveler and TRIANGLE STRATEGY. Finally, remember that Live A Live will be available for €49.99 and will benefit from a full localization in French.
