and it's for the PC, IOS, & Android.

Capcom announced a whole load of online games for "mainly Japanese and Asian markets" this week, but one in particular stood out: Breath of Fire 6 for PC, iOS, and Android.

For a decade Capcom brought the JRPG series worldwide to consoles, including the SNES, PS1, and PS2, but has since restricted the series to Japan-only mobile games. Breath of Fire 6 is the series' first numbered entry since 2003, and the first of those not announced for a console. As for it heading west, Capcom told Eurogamer it's "currently undecided." Either way, the game comes to Japan in summer 2014.

Capcom's unveiled collection of upcoming online games also featured the previously announced Deep Down for PS4, and Monster Hunter Frontier G for PS3 and Wii U. As for the newly announced online games, they're mostly restricted to iOS and Android, and as Capcom stated aren't on the whole likely to be released outside of Japan and Asia.

You can see Capcom's released list of upcoming online games, along with their platforms and release dates in Japan and Asia, here.

Seriously, Capcom? Seriously? 10 years since the last main series entry, and we're getting a mobile game? :oh_no:

They had to make sure that the series stays dead. Dragon Quarter was a bad joke. "Hey, let's make a game in a series where the primary draw is being able to turn into a dragon where you lose the game if you turn into a dragon!" "Okay, but only if we make most of the game inaccessible on the first playthrough. And the second. And third, fourth, and fifth."

The two SNES games were ok, but the Playstation games get boring.

At least it can be put on the OUYA for tv playing pleasure.

As long as they don't start prioritising a mobile Street Fighter. I'm good. This is very bad news though. To think, Capcom used to be one of my favourite developers right alongside Konami.

It was all downhill starting with IV anyways.

It's easier and more cost effective for them to use a small team and small budget to maximize profit. Capcom has done this for years.
