RPG classic Breath of Fire II coming to Wii U Virtual Console

Over the weekend, Capcom announced their plans to bring Breath of Fire II to the Wii U Virtual Console.

Capcom excitedly shared the news that fans can expect to see the classic Super Nintendo turn-based RPG on the Wii U in the coming months via the Nintendo eShop. This is obviously not the first re-release of the Breath of Fire II, with the game being ported to the Game Boy Advance in 2002 and appearing on the Wii’s Virtual Console in 2007 – still, it is good news!

Japan recently received news that Breath of Fire VI is in development for PC and mobile devices, but there is no word as of yet regarding such a release in the West. Hopefully the aforementioned re-release with satiate Breath of Fire fans’ appetites until we hear more about the new entry in the series – the game headed to 3DS or Wii U would make many a person happy, I suspect.
