E3 2001 Preshow Report: Capcom announces Breath of Fire GBA

Capcom confirms that the GBA remake of its classic RPG is coming to the US.


Capcom has confirmed that the GBA remake of Breath of Fire, its 1994 SNES RPG, will see a stateside release. The game will be virtually identical to the SNES version, save for a handful of new environments, a refined gameplay system, and player-to-player item trading via a link cable. Breath of Fire casts players as Ryu, a young man with the ability to turn into a dragon. In his battle against the foul Dark Dragons, Ryu enlists the aid of eight companions, including a girl with wings, a mole man, and snake woman.

Breath of Fire is set for release in September.
