Capcom informed us that they have shipped "Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter" to stores. The latest iteration of this popular role-playing series follows the adventures of an underground dweller named Ryu who has an “awakening” about his mysterious past and finds himself leading his underground civilization to the surface after a world shaking catastrophe turns his world upside down. His quest is to lead the way for the people of Shelter to escape to the surface, but doing the journey is fraught with peril and woe. Enemies are at every turn impeding his safe passage to the surface. Using a variety of attacks including combinations, magic and tactics, Ryo and friends will break into the sunlight after generations of darkness- or die trying.

Dragon Fire is the fifth chapter in Capcom’s RPG series and the first game to feature a fully enhanced 3D world. The game offers a variety of new and interesting features like "Survival" gameplay where players must use a combination of strategic elements to combat large numbers of enemies; PETS (Positive Encounter and Tactics System) which lets players pre-plan for a battle and set traps and decoys to change the tide of a battle before it begins; new combination attacks and systems that offer levels for specific weapons yielding numerous attack types; an ability points system that is used by all types of offensive and defensive actions; SOL (Scenario Overlay System) – a system that lets what you’ve already done in the game carry over into a new game including experience points and items along with additional in-game events and dungeons.

Look for it in stores everywhere beginning today. Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter for the PlayStation 2 is for one-player and is rated "T" for teen audiences by the ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board).
