Get ready to fight some slimes, save some damsels in distress, and relive Breath of Fire, one of the classic RPGs from the SNES era. Gamers who want to get some RPG action will be able to get Breath of Fire on the 3DS Virtual Console today. This reporter appreciates the consistent virtual console support for the 3DS, and with the Nintendo Switch right around the corner, it’s a welcome distraction until its eventual release.
The official Nintendo eShop site recently posted the full details of the Virtual Console, including the description below:
Defeat the Dark Dragons, and bring back light to the world!
In a distant land, peace was maintained for thousands of years by the powerful Dragon Clan. One day, the goddess Tyr appeared to them and offered to fulfill their every wish. Greed split the clans into the Dark Dragons and the Light Dragons, who battled to win Tyr’s magic as she watched and encouraged their war. A warrior emerged from the Light Dragons, and with his seven companions, he sealed the goddess into another realm.
Centuries have passed, and the Dark Dragons are destroying villages in search of the goddess keys to release Tyr from her prison. A new warrior must arise to face this latest blight!
Join Ryu as he embarks on an adventure of a lifetime! He will need to rely on his companions if he is to rediscover the lost powers of the Light Dragons and save his sister, Sara, from the evil clutches of the Dark Dragons. Fight, and prove that the Warrior of the Dragon is not just a myth!
This game is only playable in 2D.
Breath of Fire is available now on the New Nintendo 3DS eShop for $7.99.
