Read our editor’s article to find out why live alive issues.
live alive was originally released only in Japan for the Super Famicom in 1994. It is unique as a JRPG title because it is actually seven smaller games that take place in different settings and time periods, with two unlockable storylines that connect the stories.
The title gained followers outside of Japan thanks to a fan translation that was one of the first widely shared full patches, despite being considered a sales failure in its home country. The title was also (again, exclusively in Japan) re-released through the Virtual Console service on the Nintendo Wii U and 3DS in 2015 and 2016, respectively.
live alive releases for Nintendo Switch worldwide on July 22, 2022.
