Clickbaited for sure- but now that I have your attention I want to imprint the idea of a fan-made game (with the spirit of breath of fire intact).
I can't program, but I can make music. I just need a theme.
Remember the track from Bof2 and 3 when you're in the mountains? Both of those are amazing. I'd love to try recreate something like it.
Anyways, you see what I'm trying to get at?
We- the fans will have to make a game if we want the series to survive. It can't be called "breath of fire" because of copyrights, but we sure damn get to keep the concepts as long as we only directly copy names that could be considered normal words.
Capcom for whatever reason can't perform in this area anymore, they probably haven't got the same people working together under the same circumstances anymore, and that's fine. They need their freedom too.
But since BoF 6 is just the same name on a different game(kinda like mario 2), and BoF 5 had already failed its experiment to take the genre forward.
The game was always about the music, the character developments(VERY IMPORTANT!) and a corny concept with heroes,villains and characters with backstories that complicated their generic purpose and thereby became original.
Anyways, those are my thoughts. And I pray to God that this thing happens, no matter who gets to be in the development team- I honestly don't care if I get to take a personal part of this thing, but I really feel like if no one else takes this cause on their own shoulders, the good memories(the actual memories, not just nostalgic exaggerated value) of Breath of Fire will be lost or in many cases replaced by a new game anyway.
Why not try to at least keep the conceptual idea alive?
Temtem did it as a kickstarter project. They're actually growing even though Nintendo actually competes with them by making Pokemon Sword/Shield with expansions even. They're so threatened it's hilarious lol.
Capcom won't try to fight us. If they do, and win--- WE win too, because then we'll have the product we want. If they don't win- then we have nothing to lose. Easy argument huh?
Anyways, I hope someone takes this to heart and can add to the possibility (not just criticizing)
