Camelot Considering Breath of Fire RPG Revival

During an interview set to be published this weekend, Camelot's Takahashi Brothers revealed that the company's RPG team has expanded and they would consider taking on any projects. Given their current deal with Capcom for the highly anticipated We Love Golf, in an interview about the sports title the possibility of working closely with Capcom on a Breath of Fire revival was mentioned and the response was positive to say the least:

Cubed³'s Adam Riley: Considering your current deal with Capcom, and the fact that the company has left its Breath of Fire series untouched for far too long, would you ever give consideration to tackling the resurrection of that RPG franchise?

The Takahashi Brothers: We get asked this a lot recently. The development team is extremely important in making an RPG and when some of the team left after Mario Tennis GBA we had to say it wasn't possible. Lately, however, the gap is being filled and I'm quite confident to take on pretty much anything. It is possible to start planning for titles such as the Breath of Fire series. As I mentioned earlier, the number of games we can develop at a time is quite limited so we would like to consider what people want the most in order to determine the next title for development.

So would you want the expertise of Camelot working on Capcom's long redundant RPG series or should the team's efforts be focused on something like Golden Sun instead? Be sure to air your thoughts by posting below...

Golden Sun first, than Breath of Fire. Either way, I love both series.

I'd prefer if they granted us with a new HGolden Sun rather then a Breath of Fire game. Even though i like both franchises, i definetly prefer Golden Sun over the other one.

Golden Sun NEEEEEEDS revival. I'd pay £40 for it. If it's on DS it's automatically a bargain!

I remember playing Breath of Fire IV on PSone. It was actually the first RPG I'd ever played. The opening Japanese intro confused me and the big, firey battle animations stunned my simple mind.

BoF and BoF II on the SNES are great games. I strongly suggest people download the VC version of BoF II if they've not alreay played it. BoF III is cracking as well...I wasn't too struck on BoF IV, though. Thankfully Dragon Quarter was a fine return to form and had a magnificent soundtrack from Sakamoto-san!

Camelot's done the likes of Golden Sun and Shining Force III, so it'd be great to see them lend their RPG talents to the BoF series. Let's hope Capcom's up for the idea as well!

This would be pretty class... of course Golden Sun III would be too. If you haven't got it and you are interested in RPGs then I recommend downloading BoF II onto your virtual console.

Golden Sun, duh.

Its one of the very few RPG's with decent puzzles as well as huge landscapes to explore.
Not to mention a really kick-arse game engine.

Please give our little random review show a try;
We have special effects and umm...stuff...

I must agree with Jesusraz, I quite recently completed BoF2 for the SNES on VC and let me tell you it was well worth it.
That said, i wonder when the next Golden Sun will pop up, there was no denying the awesomeness of the GBA versions, in fact i still play them now. Also, Mario Tennis/Golf DS ftw Smilie

Bowser. You Booz, you lose.

I have breath of fire on the GBA and didn't like it at all.
Golden Sun please!

No! Do Golden Sun instead damn it!

I truly hope to see Breath of Fire make a return on a next generation system, especially PS3!! Can you imagine the incredible graphics of your character changing into a Dragon in the battle scenes, let alone in FMV? It would be beyond awesome. If I could ask for one thing, it would be for a "Ryu" who was a bit more rugged and has a personality. Hey while I am dreaming, make him the first Ryu to wield two swords! Breath of Fire forever!!
