Graphically, the Breath of Fire 2 Retranslation is simply amazing. The distant background tiles are sharper and more detailed. The tileset has been cleaned up and fixed.

Most buildings and characters have been redrawn to remove jaggies and graphical glitches. The menus have been redesigned with new backgrounds as well as redrawn buttons.

Many of the graphics in BOF2 were stretched, which is fixed in this patch. The entire game also runs faster than it did originally on the SNES.


It follows the story of two children (Ryu, a dragon, and Nina, a winged girl) as they attempt to prevent an evil cult from reviving an ancient warlord, who will take his revenge for his defeat hundreds of years ago.

The story revolves around an orphaned boy named Ryu as he seeks to help a princess named Nina, who has been cursed to turn into a monster.

The game follows his quest as he travels to many locations across the world to combat the “Dark Dragon” who was responsible for the cursing of Nina and the resurrection of the Demon King Zog, who hero must defeat before he can destroy all human life on Earth with his dark magic.

Breath of Fire 2 takes place in a world that recalls medieval Europe. The central plot is a revenge plot and involves the characters Ryu and Bow trying to defeat the mysterious Dark Dragon.

The core concept of Breath of Fire II is sacred, and thus it was not tampered with in any way. This means that the storyline is completely untouched from the original release.


Breath of Fire 2 Retranslation restores the original English voice acting and fully supports all on-screen text to enhance the gaming experience.
