Capcom Readies RPG

Japan prepares itself for Capcom's PlayStation RPG debut with Breath of Fire III.


Capcom's latst foray into role-playing games will hit Japanese shelves on September 11, but already hype is building around the title.

A 2-D RPG, Breath of Fire III, is the latest in the series that began on the Super Famicom a few years ago. There is no word yet on whether the game will appear on US shores, however. With Sony's new acceptance of the RPG phenomenon on its system, it's a possibility that US gamers will actually get to play this game in English.

In a related note, Capcom is including a new song by Japanese pop idol singer Sophia. Her song will be tied in with the opening cinema in the game.
