game news The Nintendo Switch remake of a legendary game presents its characters on video
Last February, during the Nintendo Direct, Square Enix announced with great fanfare the return of a legendary Super Nintendo game, Live A Live. A cult status gained in Japan, as the title had never been entitled to a Western release. He had the right to an English translation by the fans, and it was necessary to wait for the official announcement of the remake to think about having it in our hands in optimal conditions.
A cult game, varied eras and a visually appealing remake
Expected for next July 22 on the console with 107.65 million copies sold, the remake of Live a Live is an old-style role-playing game that reveals the adventures of eight characters in 2D-HD environments that obviously evoke the work of Octopath Traveler art direction. The originality of the title is not based on its well-known game systems, but rather on the fact that each adventure takes place in a different period, ranging from the Edo era to the Far West, passing through medieval times or even the future.
Characters rooted in their time
