Classic RPG Remake Live is coming to PS5, PS4 on April 27th



Square Enix has announced that it is bringing an HD-2D remake of its classic SNES RPG Live A Live to PS5, PS4 on April 27, 2023. A demo is now available on the PS Store, and you’ll be able to carry your progress over to it. Full game at launch next month. PS Plus members can get a 20 percent discount on digital pre-orders, bringing the price down to £31.99/$39.99. Watch the announcement trailer above.

Similar in style and structure to last month’s Octopath Traveler II, you’ll follow the stories of seven different characters in different times and places. You can play the campaigns in any order you like, and they all have different spins on the gameplay. Without the PS Plus discount — which expires on release day — the game costs £39.99/$49.99. No word yet on a physical release.

Live A Live originally launched on the Nintendo Switch last year to a wave of positive reviews. Our sister site Nintendo life awarded the RPG an 8/10, praising its stunning visuals, rearranged music, and unique approach. “This remake reintroduces an impressive, unique JRPG into an expansive world, with a cacophony of different gameplay styles, music, and visuals that somehow hang together beautifully.”
