And here I thought the tardy release of a third Golden Sun was awkward.
Show of hands: Who has been waiting patiently for a proper Breath of Fire game? Well cut your filthy peasant hands off and slap yourselves in the face with them because Capcom has announced Breath of Fire 6, a browser/tablet/smart phone game slated for 2014 release. I'm not sure all the bravest of us could handle such news.
I mean, it makes sense. Recent entrants in the Breath of Fire series -- basically any within the last decade -- have been Japan-exclusive spin-off junk for mobile phones. Still, to have the gall to call it Breath of Fire 6, right? Right now it looks like a casual, tap-based Maple Story. Let's not judge a breath of fire by its ability to light up our excitement gauges, I guess. Maybe it will be wonderful.
Or maybe this is much needed spiritual closure: the funeral pyre for the death of Breath of Fire.
