Takashi Tokita Square Enix Live A Live 26th anniversary livestream on Oct. 3, will bring a surprise

Square released Live A Live in 1994 for Super Famicom in Japan, and on Oct. 3 at 20:00 JST, Square Enix will hold a Live A Live 26th anniversary livestream on YouTube and Niconico to celebrate the game. Takashi Tokita, the director of the extremely unique JRPG, will be part of the event, along with other original staff including battle director Nobuyuki Inoue, renowned composer Yoko Shimomura, and pixel artist Kazuyuki Kurashima. Comedian Nobuo of the duo Penguins, a fan of the game, will also be part of the event.

However, most exciting of all is that the Live A Live 26th anniversary livestream will include a “surprise.” The game name recently received trademark filings around the world despite never being released internationally before, and Nintendo Enthusiast broke the story that the game had received a United States trademark. It stands to reason that Square Enix will announce a port, a remaster, or a remake of the game at this livestream. And while we definitely shouldn’t expect something on the level of Final Fantasy VII Remake, something on the scale of the remastered Romancing SaGa 3 or remade Trials of Mana is a legitimate possibility.

If you happen to speak Japanese and have a question to submit to the Live A Live 26th anniversary livestream, tweet to Takashi Tokita and let him hear it.

I have to say — between Bill & Ted Face the Music and Live A Live, this horrific year is actually making some of my dreams come true. But what do you think of the coming Live A Live 26th anniversary livestream?
