Give Life to 2D

Our licensing model will change.

Perpetual license for Live2D Cubism will be discontinued as we will transition to subscription license.

Live2D Inc. will release Live2D Cubism 3 this spring. After the release of this update, Cubism 3 will only available through subscription (with exceptions), and the current one-time fee perpetual license will no longer be available. There will also be Live2D Pack PRO, a combination package for Live2D Cubism 3 and Live2D Euclid 1, after Live2D Euclid 1 is released. Details of which will be announced later.

Four benefits of the Subscription license.

1. Easy to start

With the growing demand from creators who are interested in Live2D but not quite ready to commit to a big investment, we are introducing the subscription license. With this license model, you can start as low as JPY 2,080 / mo for Monthly Plan or JPY 1,190 / mo for Annual Plan.

2. Price gets lower down to 890/mo.

Discount will be applied to the Annual Plan after the second year of subscription. Monthly payment can be as low as JPY 890 / mo (*) after the third year.
* Price for the indie license. JPY 4,580 / mo for the business license.

3. Adopt flexibly to your staffing change.

The new subscription license is a great way to adopt changes in staff size, particularly for business users. With the Monthly Plan, you can easily add specific numbers of license, for specific periods of time, for specific projects. You can manage your license seats from an administrator account, and new license key will be sent to each user via e – mail.

4. Stay up to date all the time.

Cubism 3 is a big leap forward from the current version and will continue to evolve. With the subscription license, you will be able to access the latest releases at any given moment.
