For better or worse, Breath of Fire 6 is nearing launch. The long-awaited sixth entry is slated to hit PC, Android and iOS in Japan on February 23rd. Soon after, players will be able to acquire a slew of Capcom character-themed avatar attire. The campaign will extend to the Mega Man franchise, with costumes based on Mega Man and Roll (in her Mega Man 8 duds). More images are available at Gamer.
I never thought I'd see the day Mega Man would be referenced so blatantly in BoF. Indeed, Breath of Fire 6 is very different than any long-time fan would have expected. The game uses a service-based business model, designed to generate revenue for a long period of time. Creating content based on other IPs, such as Mega Man, ensures a steady cash flow. I would not be surprised if we saw more Mega Man content where it doesn't belong.
