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.

Live A Live is now available for Nintendo Switch. It is also being ported to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam on April 27, 2023. Further, it has been confirmed to be verified for the Steam Deck.

Check out five reasons why you should be excited about this title getting ported.

The PC version has been confirmed to receive Steam Deck verification.
