RPG enthusiasts of the ‘90s rejoice! Breath of Fire is set to spew some flaming hot member berries onto New Nintendo 3DS Virtual Consoles!

Originally released on the SNES back in 1993, Breath of Fire was Capcom’s first traditional role-playing game that set ablaze a precedent for all future games in the series to come. Set in a medieval fantasy world, players follow the journey of a boy named Ryu, one of the last surviving members of an ancient race with the ability to shapeshift into mighty dragons, as he searches the world for his sister. While the game doesn’t do much to reinvent the RPG formula, expect beautiful artwork, a great story, engaging fight scenes and an amazing soundtrack to keep you adventuring for hours on end. Overall it’s a solidly entertaining and charmingly classic role-playing game that’s well worth revisiting, whether for the first time or for nostalgia’s sake.

Breath of Fire will be available tomorrow, October 20th, for $7.99.
