Charts Japan: 28 years later, Live A Live lives its best life – News

Big end of the month for adventure lovers who can chain Live A Live, Digimon Survive and Xenoblade Chronicles 3 on Nintendo console within days. The verdict has also fallen for the former, which achieved the smallest launch for an HD 2D game and for a Team Asano game with 71,137 box sales.

The multi-era RPG is down 18% since Triangle Strategy launched earlier this year. When it was released in September 1994, Live A Live had racked up 91,624 sales on the Super Famicom to sell around 200,000 by the end of its life, a fairly modest success for the genre at the time.

And it’s good, because it’s always been a niche game, that 28 years later for Live A Live that number seems quite honourable, especially if by including downloads we can push it closer to the 100,000 sales mark. The launch of Live A Live also bodes well for Xenoblade Chronicles 3, which should have no trouble surpassing its predecessors.

Another novelty of the week, the strategy game Nobunaga’s Ambition: Rebirth has amassed more than 40,000 sales on PS4 and Switch, making it better than its predecessor Nobunaga’s Ambition: Taishi. It’s been almost 40 years (!) since the love story between Koei and Nobunaga continues and the public continues to follow in the popular warlord’s footsteps.
