Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter Released for PS2

Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter, the fifth original installment in Capcom's classic RPG series, has been released for Sony's PlayStation 2.

Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter promises to be a departure from other games in the series, with a radical new visual style, an advanced combo system, and a new survival type of game play, where players must decide whether to run or fight in different circumstances.

Dragon Quarter also contains a Positive Encounter and Tactics System (PETS) system that allows players to set traps and decoys, along with a Scenario Overlay System (SOL), where a player's accomplishments, experience points, and items carry over to a newly restarted game.

In Dragon Quarter, you will play as Ryu, a Ranger for an underground civilization who leads a team of citizens back to the earth's surface. Once aboveground, the explorers will battle monsters and other enemies.

Also available is Bradygames' Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter Strategy Guide, containing a comprehensive walkthrough, detailed maps, boss tactics, and additional bonus material that promises to increase the replay value of the game.

Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter is rated "T" (Teen) and carries an MSRP of $49.99.

The Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter Official Strategy Guide (ISBN 0-7440-0228-1) is available now at local electronics, book and software retailers for $14.99 US / $21.99 CAN. It is also available for purchase online at
