Square Enix recently posted a brief video Q&A with the producer of the HD 2D JRPG Live A Live, Takashi Tokita, where he answered various questions pertaining to the title’s identity and future.
The most significant question is whether a Live A Live 2 could happen. In response, Tokita stated that if Live A Live were to sell one million units on PlayStation and Steam platforms, then he would feel confident in proposing Live A Live 2 to Square Enix.

Live A Live was initially released only in Japan for the Super Famicom in 1994. It is unique as a JRPG title as it is effectively seven more miniature games that take place across different settings and time periods, with two unlockable scenarios that tie the stories together.
The title gained a following outside of Japan thanks to a fan translation that was among the earliest widely-shared complete patches, despite being considered to be a sales failure in its home country. The title has (again, exclusively in Japan) also been re-released through the Virtual Console service on the Nintendo Wii U and 3DS in 2015 and 2016, respectively.
