Live A Live Remake Game Overview
Live A Live (2022) is a remake of the role-playing video game released in 1994 by Square for 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 an advantage against enemies in battle.
