Experience a unique chapter in RPG history!

Originally only released in Japan for the Super Famicom, LIVE A LIVE on Nintendo Switch brings the game to the west for the first time, resurrected with the same stunning HD-2D graphics used in TRIANGLE STRATEGY and OCTOPATH TRAVELER.

Produced by Takashi Tokita (Chrono Trigger, FINAL FANTASY IV), and featuring music remastered under the supervision of Yoko Shimomura (FINAL FANTASY XV, the Kingdom Hearts series), the game is playable in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian with English and Japanese voice acting throughout.
