Breath of Fire 6 Announced!
After nearly 12 years the next installment in the Breath of fire series has been announced. Its called Breath of Fire 6 and before you get too excited... this will be the first Breath of Fire to not release on home console. Instead it's being developed for mobile devices. Cue the groans... There will also be a PC version, however it should be noted that the game is being designed specifically for touch input.
Breath of Fire 6 is scheduled to release in Japan sometime next year, and Capcom is currently undecided whether or not the game will release overseas.
You'd think with the game being built around touch controls they could at least release a Wii-U version, god knows it could use it
*twitch twitch...twitch....twitch twitch* RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! What the flying anal monkeys Capcom you take your BEST franchises and fuck them up the ass ROYALLY with rusty chainsaws TWISTING the bloody things half the way through expecting to make something along the lines of motherfluffing Call Of DUTY while not even understanding WHAT in the name of bumblecock makes you guys CAPCOM in the first bastardizing place! I grew up on Mega Man, Breath of Fire, AND Resident Evil! You practically kill Mega Man after finally releasing 10, you demolish Resident Evil's feel with Op:Raccoon City and 6, now this bull crap? Good gods Capcom get a flippant clue or go fluff yourselves like Ron Jeremy on a bad shoot. Somebody give me a copy of Breath of Fire III to play before I pass out.
I do hope you aren't talking about Breath of Fire 4, or saying it was "only on PC and mobile", because that would be horribly inaccurate.
Well, Capcom now shares something with Sega and Square Enix.
Each of them had very strong games, that they decided they'd just shoot in the foot and think it would get them money, by shoving the game to a lesser platform while brute-forcing in mechanics that are ultimately contradictory to the style of the game.
Sega had Valkyria Chronicles. Great game on the PS3, with a beautifully done engine. Cue money-grubbing desperation wherein they take a rather serious game and turn it into a Boys-Harem PSP title aimed towards women, with lazily done maps and the entire last part of the game ripped straight off of the first game. Square Enix had Dragon Quest 8. Cue 9, which was crap but still bearable, ignoring the fact that the majority of its mechanics aren't effective anywhere outside of Japan itself. Then X comes out, as an MMO. No surprise it hasn't been doing well, and is the lowest selling title in the series.
And now we got Breath of Fire 6 courtesy of Capcom. Shoved down hard to be a mobile title, with a focus on touchscreen input. I can only imagine the crap being shoved in to be used with the touch screen. Hopefully they don't go full stupid and do what Nintendo did with the DS Zelda titles, and make the touch screen required for practically everything.
v.v Capcom get your DAMN ACT TOGETHER YOU M$&^*&$Y*(^&*Q# IDIOTS!!!
*shakes both fists in the air* CAPCOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!
Correction: first Mega Man, then Darkstalkers, then Resident Evil, then Devil May Cry, some may argue Street Fighter......
I hope they can keep some integrity with Okami. It's pretty much the only thing I look forward to them NOT messing with too much.
Fuck you Capcom, I really wanted a new BoF but not your current crap. just die already Capcom.
its an RPG seris it has 4 really good games and on (that being 5) that really sucks
at least megaman is i SSB4
Not sure how this makes me feel.
I never played any game in this series, so I have no opinion of it, but if it's good, I can't buy it due to my self-imposed boycott of Capcom.
I really wanted to be happy for this. Really. When I found out it was only going to be on the PC, and mobile platforms, I said, "Okay... Well, so was BoF4, and that was not too bad..."
But then I saw the screenshots...
And heard it was going to probably be a "casual RPG", like that Megaman one...
And rumors it might not even be connected at all to Breath of Fire lore AT ALL (A repeat of why I hated Dragon Quarter so much)...
And none of the promotional pictures feature anything about transforming into dragons, or fishing, or really anything that made Breath of Fire "Breath of Fire"...
I am not even sure if I WANT this one to come over here now :(
Oh man, Chad you completely beat me to the punch on this topic. Being a big Breath of Fire fan, I'm excited to finally have the 6th installment. I have been waiting to hear anything about the series, but a bit of me is sad to hear that it's on a mobile platform. I don't care though, I'm a fan and I want to play it. Who knows, it could turn out to be really cool.
First Megaman, now this? WTF Capcom?
I loved Breath of Fire 1 and 2, 3 is my favorite and 4 was ok, 5 just sucked. Six could be good, they should have at least released it on 3DS or Vita
Oh, after what was done to BoF 5, fuck this. Return the ship to form, this series was great, Capcom.
As long as its not a social game I will give it a shot. I'm just fearful of capcom and their recent actions with their classic franchises.
Touch controls can be done right... but it depends on the game. An RPG like Breath of Fire... well, we'll see where it goes. (I'll try and be optimistic) I just hope it doesn't go the way of "All the Bravest".
I can just see the next chrono trigger on a mobile device also -_-
It was so nice to see the first comment on this blog be fair to touch controls. Seriously, thank you.
Damn. It can still be good, but the fact it is going to be on a mobile device shot my hopes down already. That and I don't like playing RPGs on mobile devices.
