Square Enix trademarks Live A Live in Australia [Update 2]

The 1994-released Super Famicom RPG.

Live A Live

Square Enix filed a trademark for “Live A Live” on July 2 in Australia. Live A Live is an RPG released for Super Famicom in September 1994 in Japan, as well as the directorial debut of Chrono Trigger director Takashi Tokita.

The trademark is notable as there have not been any recent movements surrounding the 26-year-old release, and the title was never made available outside Japan. While the game is playable in English today, it is only through fan translation.

Live A Live was also released for Wii U as a Virtual Console title in June 2015, followed by the 3DS as a Virtual Console title in November 2016.

Update 07/07/20 at 12:00 a.m.: Square Enix has also filed a trademark for “Live A Live” in Europe on July 6.

Update 07/08/20 at 3:20 a.m.: Square Enix has also filed a trademark for “Live A Live” in Canada on July 3 and United States on July 7.
