Is Live A Live Remake Coming to Other Platforms?
Live a Live Remake (Live A Live 2022 HD-2D Remaster) is set to come out worldwide on July 22nd, 2022 for the Nintendo Switch. Originally a Japan-only release by Square for the Super Famicom in 1994, this upcoming version of the role-playing video game will feature updated visuals and gameplay to join the wave of “classic-style” JRPGs making a strong resurgence on modern platforms. But is Live A Live Remake coming to Playstation 4, Playstation 5, Xbox Series S/X, PC, or even mobile?
No Official Confirmation Yet for Release on Other Platforms
While there has yet to be any official announcement on Live A Live Remake’s possible release other than on the Switch, there is a possibility for the game to be ported to other platforms in the future.
A PC (Steam) Port is Likely
A PC release (via Steam), in particular, seems to be the most likely second home for the upcoming title as many well-known classic-style JRPGs populate the platform’s library. Among the most notable of these are Octopath Traveler, Legend of Mana, Chrono Trigger, and various Final Fantasy games. Should the Switch release do well after it comes out, it may be fair to hope for a target launch date for Windows down the road.

Live A Live (2022) is a remake of the role-playing video game released in 1994 by Square for the Super Famicom. The game follows the story of eight different protagonists across nine story scenarios or “episodes” that take place in distinct periods of human civilization. Players will be able to freely begin any of the first seven episodes while the final two are unlocked by progressing further into the game.
Gameplay in Live A Live Remake consists of exploration and combat sections, with each story scenario having gameplay elements unique to the episode. Combat, in particular, is triggered through different conditions in each scenario, with some chapters having scripted, random, and optional encounters.
Live A Live Remake features turn-based battles using characters that have access to unique attacks, skills, and abilities. Defeating enemies yields experience points, allowing each character to level up to gain new actions in combat. Some skills and abilities, meanwhile, can only be learned by reaching certain points of each story chapter or by seeing an enemy use them in battle.
Various other unique quirks and mechanics are also implemented throughout the game’s different scenarios. Some episodes require the use of stealth to navigate through an area while others take advantage of a character’s unique ability to gather clues to advance the story or gain the advantage against enemies in battle.
