Breath of Fire 2 for Gameboy Advance
Breath of Fire 2 is another one of my favorite RPGs from the golden era of RPGs (at least, that's how I look at the 1990s). The early Breath of Fire games weren't anything particularly new, but they were well executed and fun to play, and definate creativity was demonstrated in different character's abilities. Every character can do something nifty to help out your team, and the party lineup can be organized differently in battle via different attack formations, which have varying affects on the attack/defense/speed of each combatant. The Breath of Fire series catapulted non-humans into central, heroic roles (Breath of Fire was the first game that I remember that memorably did this). And lastly, building a new town was an incredible feature, and gave you a sense that you really are making your own destiny and affecting the game world.
Unlike many of the mods offered here, I really didn't have a strong negative reason for making this mod. I thought the original game was perfectly fine. This mod represents much more of my personal tastes in character development, and a desire for Ryu to be able to use his Dragon powers more liberally (like his ancestor did in Breath of Fire 1). I did attempt to give players a strong reason to use any of the nine PCs, and opened more Shaman combinations.
Without further ado, I offer the Breath of Fire community... Fresh Fire. Clicky to download the current version.
If you have any questions on the Breath of Fresh Fire mod, find any bugs in the mod, please let me know!

These pages have a wealth of knowledge about the Fresh Fire mod. Hopefully they will help you in your adventures.
The content in this portion of the website pertains to "software" known as "Breath of Fire 2", which was developed by Capcom, and published by Capcom (SNES release) and later licensed for a remake to the GBA which was published by Ubisoft. The Fresh Fire mod is completely unofficial, and was an amateur fan-made undertaking. I respect the intellectual property of Capcom and Ubisoft, and under no circumstances will I distribute the ROMs for the GBA versions of Breath of Fire 2. The patch available for download is a derivative work and is completely my own. It is offered totally free of charge.
