Live A Live Super Famicom soundtrack ships from CDJapan

Square Enix first published the Live A Live soundtrack album to compact disc in August of 1994. The Super Famicom role-playing game features over forty music tracks composed by Yoko Shimomura of Kingdom Hearts.

Coinciding with the release of the comical 16-bit RPG, a limited edition Live A Live Perfect Strategy Guide Book debuted and came bundled with a mini compact disc including CD-quality arrangements of "Battlissimo" and "Forgotten Wings." A reissue of the soundtrack published in 2012 includes these tracks, and added a vocal arrangement of "GO! GO! Buriki King!!" sung by director Takashi Tokita, co-arranged by Jade Cocoon composer Kimitaka Matsumae.

On July 7, 2020, Square Enix filed a trademark for "Live A Live" in the United States. This trademark filing followed earlier listings in Australia and the UK, leading to speculation that the title may see an English-language release in some form in the near future.

The Live A Live CD soundtrack can be purchased domestically through CDJapan, while the digital release is streaming on Apple Music in Japan. "GO! GO! Buriki King!!" and excerpts from the music score are streaming on YouTube, courtesy of Square Enix.
