Liner Notes IX: The orchestral flair of Breath of Fire

(Editor’s note: From Dragon Quest to Suikoden, everyone’s got at least one videogame tune stuck in their heads. Enter Liner Notes: a Pixelitis feature in which our writers discuss their favorite videogame music.)

"I could sit here and type endlessly about the brilliance of Nobuo Uematsu’s work on Final Fantasy IV – VI, or how in-depth Koji Kondo’s Super Mario World compositions really were, but those are instances of SNES music that have been endlessly praised and examined for nearly two decades.

One particular score that holds up as highly as the others is Breath of Fire. Developed and published entirely by Capcom in 1993, with a North American localization handled by Squaresoft a year later, it marked the company’s first foray into a JRPG market already being dominated by the likes of Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest."

- Patrick Kulikowski (Breath of Fire, Capcom, Culture, Retro, Yasuaki Fujita)
