A forum post made on Capcom-Unity by Capcom Corporate Officer and Senior Vice-President Christian Svensson yesterday revealed that the classic 2000 PS1 RPG Breath of Fire IV is scheduled to hit the North American Playstation Network on August 16.
To celebrate the occasion, Breath of Fire PSN avatars will also be on sale on that day as well.
The Breath of Fire series has not seen a new title or re-release in North America since 2007, when Breath of Fire II hit the Wii’s Virtual Console. Breath of Fire III, also released on PS1, did not receive IP clearance. No reason for this was given by Svensson.
