    Breath of Fire is a deep role-playing game designed to test the adventuring skills of even the most experienced gamer. Breath of Fire has an automatic battle command fighting system and some of the best spells effects ever seen on a 16-bit system. For example, the Hero can learn to transform into nine different types of dragons, and the Thief can create super-characters by fusing different party members together.

    Like any great RPG, Breath of Fire has an intriguing storyline. An evil sorceress brings two competing dragon clans under her diabolical spell. Capable of transforming themselves into savage monsters with awesome powers of destruction, the clan members are bent on destroying the world. A young adventurer and seven warriors are awakened from an eternal slumber to wage war against the shape-changing enemies and save the world.

    Game Boy Advance breathes new life into a classic RPG.

    Thanks to Game Boy Advance, there has never been a better time to be an RPG fan. From brand new adventures like Golden Sun to converted classics like Breath of Fire, Role Playing Games are making a huge splash on GBA.

    Breath of Fire debuted on the Super NES in August of 1994, and die-hard fans of the series have never let it drift too far out of mind. Now that Breath of Fire is available in a portable version, it's sure to win over whole new legions of fans.

    Breath of Fire is the epic saga of a world ravished by the warring forces of the Light Dragons and the Dark Dragons. A boy hero named Ryu embarks on a quest to save the land, and discovers an unlikely cast of companions to help him along the way.

    Seven characters will eventually join Ryu's party, each with unique talents and abilities. Gobi, a fish-like merchant, has the ability to move around in the water. Ox, a hulking beast from a weapon-forging clan, can smash through rocks and walls. The secret to success is to take advantage of the strengths of all party members.

    Classic RPG-style battles will test your strategic planning, and creative puzzles will keep you guessing throughout the entire journey. Capcom even spruced up the quest with enhanced graphics and the ability to trade items with your friends by using the Game Boy Advance Game Link Cable.

    Breath of Fire is available now.
