Capcom Makes Original Breath of Fire Available to Play for Free in Browser

Capcom has announced that it has updated its 40th-anniversary website, Capcom Town, with three more playable retro games. Fans can now play the original Ghosts’N Goblins, Super Ghouls ‘n Ghosts, and Breath of Fire on their website for free.

These titles have joined the lineup of other playable NES and SNES games, such as Street Fighter II, Mega Man, Mega Man 2, Mega Man X, and Final Fight. Of course, playing these games in-browser isn’t exactly a recommended way to experience them by any means. Still, it’s a collectively neat series of novelties that gives the 40th-anniversary website some charm.

It’s also worth noting that every playable title has selectable Japanese and English versions.

Breath of Fire, in particular, is quite notable as that IP has been untapped over the past several years. So, while the potential of a new entry or genuine revival remains farfetched, it’s nice to see that Capcom still remembers this beloved IP.

Breath of Fire is a JRPG series by Capcom that began in 1993 for the Super Famicom before launching Westward for the SNES a year later. Several sequels have been released, with the final game, Breath of Fire 6, being Japan-exclusive for PC and mobile devices in 2016.
