A sliver of hope for a US re-release of Breath of Fire III?

"North American fans of the third entry of the underrated Breath of Fire series just couldn’t seem to catch a break when it came to seeing a re-release of it. But after a recent statement from Capcom, there may be a small chance.

After several fans inquired about a digital release of the PSP version of Breath of Fire III on the Capcom-Unity forums, Capcom executive Christian Svensson replied:

“I’ll never say never, and I am looking into one way to put it back into North American circulation, but it’s a long shot. When and if I get news, I’ll let you know.”

Breath of Fire III was ported to the PSP in Japan back in 2005. The port was released a year later in Europe, but SCEA denied the game’s release in North America due to a specific stipulation on ports to the PSP that stated that a port needs to have at least 20% new content to be considered for release on the handheld. This still didn’t explain how ports of other Capcom titles like Power Stone Collection and Street Fighter Alpha 3 MAX were allowed."

Breath of Fire III is my 2nd favorite RPG of all time(1st one is Final Fantasy Tactics but honestly they go back and forth depending on the day and my mood at the time)

It makes me sad that Capcom killed the BoF series although I have to wonder if they would even be capable of making a good game if they didn't kill it. I would like to see someone tackle a new game. Make it like the original games. A sprite based game for the Vita or 3DS and just make a new story and that would be fine. The series doesn't need over the top graphics and game play and pretty much every game in the series proved that with the exception of Dragon Quarter.

I don't understand even if they don't want to make new games why they are so stubborn when it comes to getting the old ones out and easily to obtain on things like PSN, XBLA and Steam(as well as the 3DS eShop)

Not many games with the quality of story as Breath of Fire III out.

I imported the UK version of Breath of Fire III over here to the US when it was released, and love it to this day. Still one of my favourite games on the system. If it could be released digitally, I'd be able to play it on my Vita and love the vibrant colours on the Vita's wonderful OLED screen. :)
