Capcom of Japan has confirmed the development of Breath of Fire V for PS2. Scheduled for release in Japan in late 2002, Breath of Fire V will sport a spanking new 3D graphics engine to allow the entire game to show in three lovely dimensions. The central character is a young man called Ryu, and he originates from a subterranean city shelter.
Features not previously seen in any Breath of Fire games are a new battle system called ?Positive Encounter and Tactics System? which allows you to organise traps and decoys in advance of battle engagement, and a ?Scenario Overlay System?, where when you restart the game, your inventory and statistics gained from your previous adventure will be carried through to your next scenario. Neat-o!
