    Seeing as I haven't seen this posted anywhere on this site yet....

    [​IMG]

    The article goes on to mention that Nina makes a return (but without wings), and though Ryu has been replaced by a customizable avatar, they retain some dragon-like abilities. A new female character named Peridot is also revealed, though it's not mentioned what she actually does.

    There will be AI controlled characters that can accompany you. Combat is going to be fast-paced and simplified, as well as featuring time-based attacks. Like in II-V, town-building makes a return, and you will be able to interact with other players' village in some way.

    Inside-Games also claims that the story of this game takes place 1,000 years after the last youth who wielded the power of the dragons, which could possibly mean that this game takes place either after III or IV (V didn't have Dragnier nor Windia as far as we know).

    Source 1 - Pixelitis

    Source 2 - Inside-Games (Japanese)


    Though I'm still a bit bitter about their decision to turn the game into a Social-RPG, I'll admit it does have some potential. At least it'll retain some of the series' staples, as well as Dragnier and Windia making a return.

    What do you guys think?

    I played Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter on the PS2, which I couldn't get into first, but after a while I couldn't stop playing it. Will this be for mobile devices or something else? If this gets released in English,I'll definitely play it.

    It's a mobile social game, so that means iOS and Android. It's also getting a PC release too, which is speculated to be browser-based considering the nature of the game.

    In that case, I'll definitely get it for my Note 2 if it gets an English release.

    I wouldn't get your hopes up yet since a localization is still undecided. Knowing Capcom, they might not even bring it here. I guess now would be a good time for me to keep an eye on this game and see where it goes. By the way, if you haven't yet you should probably play the first 3 games since those are the only ones that actually connect to one another. It might be kind of difficult though considering I and II haven't really aged well, but that doesn't mean they aren't playable.

    I doubt I'll bother: I'd prefer a proper Breath of Fire game. I'd even take a complete remake of any of the first 3 games, especially 3. I've always imagined Capcom would remake it in a way that let you choose a storyline to follow at the point where
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    BoF I and II might not have aged well, but I still remember them fondly and a remake could breathe (no pun intended) new life into those games.

    Why couldn't this be on 3DS? I don't like playing games on my phone.
    This. Capcom has gotten so out of touch on what games actually want.

    BoF 6 is still DOA, no Ryu, a completely wingless Nina, this is not Breath of Fire, just the typical social garbage with the name tacked on. Please do yourself a favor and play the classics either as downloads on PSN, when they come out on PS Now streaming, on the eshop as downloads, or as roms and isos. Send a message to Capcom that we won't play this garbage.

    Ever played the re-translated patch? No more Engrish and an actual dash button, no more taking an hour to get from the hometown to Wyndia. In fact, the translation is helluva lot better than Crapcom's attempt. I mean, they even called the fishing rod in the mini-game, "Equip Lod" and a guy says "What do you wnat from me?" XDD

    And with that said, what do I think? This so-called Breath of Fire VI is a steaming pile of shit that needs to die in a fire. This is not Breath of Fire, this is Chibi Weaboo Mobile Quest. Breath of Fire I through IV awesome, V sucked, VI officially kills the series.

    It does have a few swears in it (can't be helped I guess) but the items actually have names. I love how the original called "vanilla extract" "Van Ext". LOL WTF is that, "van exit?" "Van extension"? ROFL. That game had so much Engrish. But the added dash feature makes it all the better IMHO. :D :P

    I don't know the name of that hack, but I got it from Watercrown translations.

    I know that feel. Breath of Fire died ten years ago.

    Social-RPG, eh?

    "Will this be a breath of fresh air, or has the fire been put out?"

    10-to-1 someone uses that exact line in a review for the game.

    I guess you could say that their refusal to return the series to its roots only adds fuel to the fire.

    Looks great and happy they aren't changing too much to the formula. But mobile? Oh man, that is sad. Altghough it's even easier to pirate that way, but still, why pirate it when it's a shitty game.
