Live A Live remake has sold half a million copies

Long had fans of the classic Live A Live from 1994 are waiting to be able to play an officially localized version of the game outside of Japan. In July 2022, the HD 2D style remake was released exclusively for Nintendo Switch. Official sales figures for the title have now been released.

In a live stream celebrating the title’s 28th anniversary, producer Takashi Tokata, composer Yoko Shimomura and comedian Nobuo announced that the title had sold over 500,000 copies since its release in July.

Half a million copies sold may not sound like much compared to other Square Enix titles, but for a niche, Esports Extras-style title exclusive to just one console, it’s quite an achievement in just over a month. Also convinced in our test Live A Live with varied game mechanics, a great technical implementation and a story that was already impressive back then and still inspires.

In the live stream linked below, a Live A Liveconcert announced to be held in Japan next year. Not only Shimomura himself will perform on this, but also Toby Fox, known for his games Undertale and delta runewhich according to his own statement in the song Megalovania from the title Megalomania Live A Live inspired.

Hopefully, the success of HD-2D will convince Square Enix to bring more JRPGs to the west, or consider remaking other classics. A Terranigma in HD 2D style would probably be the greatest gift for me personally.
