Live A Live Shares 29-Year Anniversary Artwork

To celebrate the 29-year anniversary of their classic turn-based JRPG Live A Live, Square Enix has shared a new illustration by Kenta Kamada depicting Pogo and his companions.

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.

In case you missed these info drops, Tokita also revealed that Live A Live 2 could happen if Live A Live manages to sell over one million units on Steam and PlayStation and that he has always wanted Live A Live to have an anime adaptation.

New countdown art was featured for the PlayStation and Steam ports.

Live A Live is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.
