SQUARE ENIX is pleased to announce that two short trailers titled Present Day and The Distant Future have been revealed today for LIVE A LIVE, the classic RPG scheduled for release on Friday, July 22nd, 2022.
The Preset day trailer introduces the story of the main character Masaru Takahara, a mixed martial artist who, like many, dreams of becoming the world’s strongest fighter. He truly believes he has what it takes to claim the title, and by making the skills of other masters his own, he intends to prove himself.
The Distant Future trailer introduces the story of the main character Cube, an autonomous support unit built by the engineer Kato. Alas, as a series of incidents put the safety and well-being of the ship’s crew in jeopardy, tensions mount and tempers flare, and Cube finds itself swept up in the disputes.
