If you’ve been looking to refresh your Switch library lately, the good news is that this week has plenty of games to choose from. There’s a big number of new titles up for sale on the eShop, ranging from the rebirth of a classic RPG to the next installment in the high-speed Gunvolt series.
Live A Live is one of the big highlights this week, a remake of the 1994 classic that has been updated with sharper 2D visuals and high-definition assets. The key hook of the game is that each chapter of its lengthy story stars a different character, each with their own set of abilities and mechanics that’ll change how you approach the various storylines. The game was also noteworthy for being a launchpad for several of the people who worked on it, including Chrono Trigger co-director Takashi Tokata.
“Live A Live not only holds up well, but manages to feel unique, compelling, and excitingly original even when compared to its modern contemporaries,” Heidi Kemps wrote in GameSpot’s Live A Live review.
