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.

Check out the Breath of Fire II Virtual Console trailer above.

Video Game Ad of the Day: Breath of Fire

Breath of Fire
Breath of Fire is the first in a series of five RPGs developed and published by Capcom. Players take control of a boy named Ryu, the last of a race who have the ability to transform into dragons. The difference in the way the characters are presented in the promotional material and packaging in comparison to the game should provide for some amusement.

Video Game Ad of the Day: Breath of Fire II

Another series Capcom pretends doesn’t exist.

Set five hundred years after the first game, Breath of Fire II puts you in the shoes of Ryu, a 16 year old boy who finds himself alone in the world after demons kidnap his father and sister, and erase the memories of the local townsfolk. Of course, he turns out to be part dragon or something and sets off to save the world with a bunch of stereotypical J-RPG friends.

Breath of Fire IV headed to US PSN


Capcom USA’s Corporate Officer/Senior VP Christian Svensson revealed on the Capcom Unity forums that the company will be releasing the semi-popular J-RPG Breath of Fire IV on the US PlayStation Network on August 16th.

Nothing has been said about a release on the PAL PSN, but there’s all kinds of rights issues and things that complicate a PAL release (mainly the distribution deal they had with Virgin, from memory – I could just be speculating though). Now they just need to acknowledge that Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter exists, and that people liked it and want another one, right?
