Live A Live (ライブ・ア・ライブ Raibu A Raibu, stylized as, LIVE A LIVE) is a role-playing video game developed and published by Square for the Super Famicom, and released on September 2, 1994. It was never released outside Japan, but it has been unofficially translated into English. It was released on the Virtual Console for Nintendo Wii U on June 24, 2015 and New Nintendo 3DS on November 28, 2016 in Japan.
Live A Live‘s story begins with a series of seven seemingly unrelated chapters that can be played in any order, based on popular genres such as Western, science fiction, and mecha. Each chapter has its own plot, setting, and characters. Although the basic gameplay is the same throughout the game, every chapter has its own unique gimmick, such as the stealth elements in the ninja chapter. After the first seven chapters are completed, the game’s final sequence plays out, linking the previous chapters together and resolving the story.
