Live A Live is coming to Nintendo Switch on July 22, Nintendo and Square Enix announced during the February Nintendo Direct. The formerly Japan-exclusive RPG is getting the 2D-HD remake treatment, but it's unorthodox style remains intact.

Live A Live resembles the SaGa series in that it doesn't follow the usual JRPG conventions. Some segments lack battles, there's an emphasis on stealth, and you'll follow a number of distinct protagonists on their unique adventures.


Live A Live Heads West for the First time This Summer

Here's how Square Enix describes it:

Seven different stories featuring different protagonists, time periods, and gameplay styles await. In The Wild West, a wanderer with a bounty on his head fights for his life. In the Twilight of Edo Japan, a shinobi undertakes a secret mission. Experience these tales in any order you choose—the adventure is yours to control. What other stories will you uncover on the horizon…?
