Live a Live

Super Nintendo

Game Description:

Live A Live is an odd sort of game. At base, it’s an RPG. What makes it different is it’s separated into chapters. One has you playing as a cowboy, another as ninja, a third as martial arts master and his disciples. All the chapters are quite different. The ninja chapter, for instance, involves being a stealthy sneak and assissinating your rival without killing anyone else, or being a killing machine and cutting a swath through all the guards. The wrestler’s chapter plays almost like a fighting game, as he faces off against his opponents one-on-one until he is the champ. All the characters join up at the end for the final chapter. I know, it sounds like Saga Frontier, but trust me, this game is actually good.

Translation Description:

We have all of the issues worked out (we hope!) It’s gone through a few rigorous testing cycles, which continue even as I write this. The end result is a patch that blows everything else out of the water. This is very likely Aeon Genesis’s definitive work, exceeding possibly even Rudra in its grandeur.

The new version includes…

  • 560 kilobytes of English script: Twice the size of the original translation!
  • Main dialogue, menu, and battle fonts are now fully proportional!
  • Each chapter now has its own unique font - even the Japanese version can’t say this! Live-A-Live now sports a total of ten different fonts.
  • Kung Fu names are now Chinese, not Japanese!
  • Items, techniques, and equipment names expanded dramatically due to new fonts!

Caught my attention. And this should catch yours.

This is an ambitious and original title from Square back in the day and straying from the Final Fantasy. We have many different stories that eventually set all to unite. Some stories are simple but fun, can have suspense, and can be heartbreaking.

This is a fine game and the translation works well. Tiny little issue, sometimes when you check your status, the screen stays black, so all you need to do is press A and then see your status screen. No glitches and is fully functional for sure.

This is a challenging one and not very linear. The music is very good too (that old west theme is excellent) Too bad some stories are rather short.

I gotta thank Aeon Genesis for the hard work making this translation possible. Looking for something different? Try this!
