Square Enix has ported HD-2D role-playing game LIVE A LIVE to PlayStation consoles and Windows through Steam. A playable demo previews the opening of the “Wild West,” “Twilight of Edo Japan,” and “The Distant Future” chapters.

LIVE A LIVE debuted on the Nintendo Switch in July of 2022. Excerpts of all music tracks are streaming on the Ototoy digital music store, composed by Yoko Shimomura of Kingdom Hearts. The two-disc CD soundtrack ships from the Square Enix store for North America and Europe, as well as distributor CDJapan.

Square first published the Live A Live soundtrack CD in August of 1994. The Super Famicom title features over forty music tracks. Coinciding with the release of Live A Live, the limited edition Perfect Strategy Guide Book came bundled with a mini compact disc, including CD-quality arrangements of "Battlissimo" and "Forgotten Wings."

A reissue of the soundtrack, published in 2012, included these arranged tracks, and a new vocal rendition of "GO! GO! Buriki King," sung by director Takashi Tokita and co-arranged by Jade Cocoon composer Kimitaka Matsumae.
