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® XV, The KINGDOM HEARTS Series).

As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.
