Capcom has announced that Breath of Fire 2 will be arriving soon on Wii U Virtual Console.

No specific release date has yet been given, but in a blog post Capcom stated that we should see it “in the coming months.”

Breath of Fire 2 was first released in 1994. The news of its revival follows the contentious announcement that Breath of Fire 6 will be an online version of the RPG series designed exclusively for touchscreen devices. That’s due to be released in Japan in 2014, with no release elsewhere yet slated. Hopefully we’ll see Breath of Fire 2 a little sooner.

For now, here’s a launch trailer.
