New media: Breath of Fire II

Capcom announces plans to bring the next Breath of Fire game to the US.


Capcom is going to continue porting its SNES RPG series, Breath of Fire, to the Game Boy Advance. The next game in the series, Breath of Fire II, has just been announced for an April 2002 release. Breath of Fire centers on Capcom's other Ryu, who can transform into a dragon. In addition to porting the game over from the SNES, Capcom is adding things to the game, including a dash that lets players move around the screen faster, as well as retouched character portraits. The game will also have link cable support, which will let players trade items.

Breath of Fire II is currently scheduled to hit stores this summer.
