‘Breath of Fire 6’ MMORPG Launching This Week in Japan

It’s been a while since we’ve heard some news about Breath of Fire 6, the MMORPG take on Capcom’s seminal RPG series, surprise! The game is launching in Japan this week, if not right now. The game is currently in pre-launch on Windows and Android, though the official launch and possible iOS release isn’t set until Wednesday, February 24th. So we might see an iOS release around then, though the news coming out of Japan is a bit unclear right now.

This game has been in the works for a while now, with the first news popping up back in 2013 along with some other games that have yet to make an appearance in western markets. So, for Breath of Fire 6, I wouldn’t hold my breath in anticipation of this game coming to western markets and in English. Perhaps it could happen someday, but it might take a while. MMORPG localization is often a very lengthy and involved process. Otherwise, learn Japanese?
