Capcom is bringing back Breath of Fire! Yes, Breath of Fire 6 has been announced and it will be released next year. What platforms will it be released on? How about, erm, broser? What the heck. Mobile? Aw, seriously? And finally tablets! What the heck, Capcom. We've been waiting over 10 years for a numbered release in the Breath of Fire franchise and this is all you've got? Ahh, poop.
In addition to Breath of Fire 6, Capcom announced six more mobile titles that would sound better if they weren't mobile:
- Street Fighter Battle Combination
- Monster Hunter Big Hunting Quest
- Street Fighter x All Capcom
- Monhun Everyday Airu Life
- Frontier of Discovery
- Codename: Rio
Despite early excitement about a worldwide release of Breath of Fire, Capcom has replied that they're unsure of the game or any of the other mobile titles will be localized outside of Japan. How dare fans of just a great franchise from the 1990s and early 2000s think the sequel would be localized for them.
Should Capcom change its mind or any other news pertaining to Breath of Fire 6 or the other mobile games announced today, expect us to let you know. Until then, these announcements are such a bummer. Why couldn't they just give a small studio the license to make a new RPG? Make it cheap, episodic. Test the waters... just... ah, whatever.
