As a title that launched as far back as 1994, Live A Live was ahead of its time by giving players a choice of where the narrative goes in a JRPG. The game takes place during different periods of history, and players can choose which level to play first in whatever order they desire.

Thanks to the 2D HD remaster, fans in the West can experience one of the most timeless JRPGs of all time with Live A Live currently on the Nintendo Switch. As a game created by Takeshi Tokita, the famed creator of Chrono Trigger, Live A Live is another timeless classic that’s as good today as it was almost 30 years ago. The most non-linear mission in the game is a campaign in Japan during the Edo period, and the chapter is called Twilight of Edo. This chapter tasks the player with taking two routes, one of a pacifistic ninja or a warrior that leaves no person alive during a mission that involves infiltrating the Odo Castle.

Pacifist Or Killer?

The pacificist and the killer route in Live A Live Twilight of Edo chapter have distinct rewards and challenges. Neither choice is the easy one, but which one should players choose?

Live A Live Pacifist Rewards

Opting for the pacifist route in Live A Live has advantages like avoiding fights – fighting 100 enemies can be repetitive – and Goeman can respawn items and weapon drops. This includes the Muramasa Blade. The drawback, of course, is it’s harder to grind for EXP beyond fighting and defeating Lost Souls in Odo Castle. As a result, fighting bosses is more challenging. Finally, players need to memorize the passwords – a wrong password will trigger a fight ruining the no-kill run.

Live A Live Killer Rewards

  • The Muramasa Blade. It has the same attack power as the Mutsunoko, but the player is required to beat the super boss Majin Ryunosuke.
  • Large item drops from enemies.
  • Lots of experience points thanks to fighting and defeating 100 enemies.

The kill-everyone route has certain perks like lots of EXP to fight bosses and super bosses. Players won’t need to memorize the room passwords, and item drops are more rewarding.

Ultimately, players can have fun playing both routes, but thanks to gaining the best ending and a way to get both swords, players should choose the No-Kill run on their first playthrough.

Live A Live is available now for the Nintendo Switch.
