Next Wednesday, May 1, 2013 we will march on with our campaign with a sixth mass-social media posting to renew interest in the Breath of Fire series and show Capcom that fans would love to see a sequel to the resting IP.

Participants for this Wednesday mass-posting are asked to do the following (and for the first of every month after):

We need to try to get gaming media outlets to recognize us. Gaming news sites like Kotaku and Destructoid have covered online movements like Operation Rainfall, Operation Moonfall, 100,000 Strong for Mega Man Legends 3 and the Suikoden Revival Movement in the past. Any efforts to spread news of our cause to various gaming sites will be immensely appreciated.

If you have a Neo GAF account, I strongly encourage you to post this link on the site’s forum and participate in the 20th Anniversary thread.

Capcom-Unity threads you can post in (feel free to create new ones):


If you have the funds, purchase the following:

  • If you own a Wii or Wii U in North America, Europe or Japan, purchase Breath of Fire II on the Virtual Console for 800 Wii Points.
  • If you own a PSP, PS3, or Vita in Europe or Japan, purchase Breath of Fire III (PSP) on PSN (Great Britain link enclosed).
  • If you own a PSP, PS3 or Vita in North America or Japan, purchase Breath of Fire IV on PSN (US link enclosed).

Due to differing time zones, you’re free to begin your posts starting at midnight on May 1.

Some basic rules:

1. Don’t spam. Basically, don’t constantly tweet or Facebook post the same thing. You can keep different types of posts going throughout the day, but don’t be overbearing. For Capcom’s Unity forums, threads with Breath of Fire-related subjects are fine.  Different BoF threads on Capcom’s Game Discussion and Ask Capcom forum sections are OK if they’re about different subjects (ex. one is about requesting Breath of Fire IV on PSN in UK, another is about your favorite version of Ryu or Nina, etc.).

2. Don’t be negative. There is no reason to attack a company or its employees just because they’re not doing what you want them to do. Keep this positive, and focus on the fact that you’d love to see the Breath of Fire series revitalized.

3. Respect your fellow peers. Some may hold different opinions about the games than you do, but that doesn’t make it an excuse to attack them for liking or disliking a specific title.
