The lights are on
Breath of Fire fans have been anxiously awaiting the revival of the beloved RPG series. Today, the sixth entry in the franchise has been announced. It's not what many fans were expecting, though.
Breath of Fire 6 will be a touch-based RPG for PC, iOS, and Android. 90 percent of the game will be online, according to Capcom, with data transferring across devices.

Mobile... And online at that... For the love of god...
Oh boy. At the least, an offline Breath of Fire for 3DS and/or Vita would have been better. Not sure if Im big onthis requiring that much online use, especially a single player series.
This is disappointing.
There go my dreams for another full fledge BoF game with another Ryu and Nina :(
Oh Capcom. I am disappoint.
