Its possible to connect combos with the constant use of good timing with the character and Fellow’s skills. In addition, strategies may change in response to a variety of terrain, obstacles and even height differences.

While a simple system, it will become a deep combat system that can be enjoyed.

The player controls a hero harboring the “Power of the Dragon” in his body, whose gender, hairstyle and face can be customized. With a character growth unlike previous entries, its possible to add propieties to the skills and abilties learned. Becoming companions of the main hero in his journey are the Fellows, members of races that have previously appeared such as Human, Grassrunners, Faeries and Worens.

Online Game Elements

An element of the “Breath of Fire” series, it’s a player-build village that evolves as a “Community” the more one advances in the game, and rather than just play in your own, you can go play in a friend’s village and protect it by intercepting monster that attack it.

Community Introduction
The community, as the player advances through the game, is the system which allows one to create their own village.

Nina, Gilliam and more than 350 initial Fellows!
Fellows and you are both together in the adventure. Those who switch jobs also change appearance, with the growth of those people who become Residents in the "Community".


World View
Story
It’s been more than a thousand years since the battle of the youth with the power of the dragon.

After surviving the crisis of a severe desertification, the people were living vigorously in hopes of a new era. Although people were enjoying a seemingly peace in the world, in the backstage the “Schwarz Empire” appeared and conquered small countries through its military force.

The hero, who lived peacefully alongside friendly villagers, was unable to escape from a confrontation with the “Schwarz Empire” who has conquered most of the continent…

The "Song of the Dragon" scattered in the world and the legendary "Power of the Dragon"
The ancient "Song of the Dragon" is the key of the story. History has bestowed trials to the descendants of the Dragon Clan...


Story Introduction
Schwarz Empire (German for “Black”)
Although just a small country in the northern continent, it underwent a transformation into an enormous empire that has overwhelmed most of the continent in less than a few years. Its military force using real “Ancient Weapons” from long ago, and active troops possessing the “Power of the Black Dragon” that was thought only existed in myths, they have dominated other countries with an overwhelming difference in strength.

Dragnier Village
Village of the Origin
Adjacent to the "Forest of the Dawn" and "Weiss Kingdom"; the village where the hero lives.
With an unchanged greenery landscape, residents lived in peace every day.

A village that guards the traditions of the dragon. Although the hero lived in peace here, it was finally destroyed by an invasion of the Schwarz Empire.

Dragnier
As can be seen from its name, many traditions related to dragons have remained in the vicinity of this village. When the Schwarz Empire expanded its forces, they took notice of this tradition. With their accumulated force, they started marching in order to assault Dragnier Village. In this small village in the corner of the continent, the gears that hold the fate of the entire world start spinning.

Weiss Kingdom (German for “White”)
A kingdom that’s been a neighbour of the hero’s Dragnier Village. A kingdom where the dragon tradition has also remained, it’s engaged in war against the Schwarz Empire seeking to free the continent.

Forest of the Dawn
As the desertification has progressed through the course of human history, this small forest is the remains of a mystical forest. There’s a legend that “A Dragon once lived in this land” in the past, but no one knows any details.


Characters
Hero
In order to restore Dragnier Village destroyed by an attack of the Schwarz Empire, he stands up with his friends.

Nina
A descendant of the Wing Clan who were reportedly once able to fly in the skies and transform into a Great Bird. A native of the already-overthrown Wyndia, she went on to travel for personal reasons.

She has been traveling the world to find her missing sister. Although Nina has been at the mercy of the world's great waves, she's will soon find herself at the center of those waves. Fate sleeps within her... she holds the key to draw the answer, the ancient "Song of the Dragon".

Peridot
A traveler with beautiful green hair. In the middle of her journey, she stopped by chance in Dragnier Village after it was destroyed in a Schwarz Empire attack and rescued the injured hero.

With beautiful green hair and eyes reminiscent of jewelry, she's a woman with the characteristics of a minstrel. Traveling the world for personal purposes, she stopped by chance in Dragnier Village on her way. To the benefit of the villagers and the Hero wounded during the attack, she will lend a hand in the reconstruction of Dragnier Village.

Although she has a laconic personality which doesn't represent emotions well, she actually possess a gentle heart and is full of compassion.

Amelia
A woman with a friendly and intellectual atmosphere. Despite her mild and laid-back personality, she has a stubborn side who enforces her thoughts.

A laid-back gentle personality, though she's sometimes a bit goofy, there's constantly a smile around her.
She has learned magic in the past, and because of that sometimes there will be glimpses of intelligence at the end of her conversations.
Maybe her goofy side is actually premeditated...?

Gilliam
A warrior who protects the leafy Forest of the Dawn. Though a warlike character, he's ready to throw his own life in order to protect his cherished companions.

He lives in Dragnier Village as the protector of the "Forest of the Dawn" and what's left of its still-abundant and invaluable greenery. Having the makings of a warrior since birth, he's a veteran combatant with a strong body gained through a constant daily training.
In order to protect both the forest and his friends, he's willing to risk even his very own life.

Jubei
An elderly beastman with one eyepatch. He's a little bit presumptuous, but has a solid personality that values civility, and he's also the spiritual pillar of Dragnier Village.

An elderly beastman with abundant life experience, he provides advice on various events in the village. Having gained the trust of the residents, he's become the village's spiritual pillar.
In response to the Empire's attack, and to support the hero who works on the reconstruction of the destroyed Dragnier Village, his aged body has started to stir up...

Klaus
The strongest knight in the Schwarz Empire. Respectful of civility, and a man that acts based on his strong faith, he's a hero for many people within the Empire.

Klaus is the strongest among the knights, said to be a man without equal within the Empire. A member of a knight unit assigned special missions, he seemingly was also involved in the attack of Dragnier Village, the hero's hometown. His hidden power will become increasingly apparent as the story of the "Legend of the Dragon" unfolds.

Elise
Green-eyed female knight that belongs to the Schwarz Empire. With a brillant mind, she works as staff officer of the knights.

She's a member of the Knight team just like "Klaus", and she's also deeply involved in the story around the "Dragon Tradition". In addition, though actually she also has the same characteristics as "Klaus" and hidden power...

Teaching Girl
A mysterious girl who suddenly appeared on Dragnier Village.
For some reason knows a variety of information, and for some reason she teaches a variety of them.
Conversation is always carried out throughout ventriloquism using a creepy doll.
Sometimes, nobody pays attention when she speaks in riddles.


Music
Invitation of the White Dragons
Love Herb (AIBO)
Distant (SANGAI)
Spring (SHUKI)


Producer Kazunori Sugiura Updates
Update 1
Here is Producer Sugiura of "Breath of Fire 6: Guardians of the White Dragon".
BOF6 is developing intensively towards beta testing right now. Today, we released new BGM and characters through the
update in the official promotional site.
Please check it out.

Well, there was one thing I thought I needed to explain as soon as possible after opening the Facebook, related with
Nina's wings which almost all fans of the series have asked about.
Yes, of course she has wings! It's just I was intentionally delaying the reveal...
Because we are actually producing the animation for the PV image, where the wings of Nina will first appear...
A considerable effort was put in the scene of the wings to draw close to get a great image.
I will publish a small part from the beginning of the scene where Nina's wings appear. What kind of wings will spread from here, please look forward for the release of the PV image.

I'm willing to say the date for the beta testing will be in June...I think.
I want to be able to also present the image PV by that time.
Thanks for your support to "Breath of Fire 6: Guardians of the White Dragon" from now on.

Update 2
Well, today's secret information is about the "Hero" who the player controls. In "Breath of Fire" is this person who has the "same name". He has appeared several times throughout the series in unique world views.

In "BOF6", you are allowed to freely create a character. For those who say "So, Ryu's not coming back?", please pay close attention in the future for the "Tale of the White Dragon".
The story of "BOF6" is brand new, and while it can be enjoyed even by those who have no knowledge of previous games, there's also connections with those stories from the older works...
So, this is all for today! Thanks for your support to "Breath of Fire 6: Guardians of the White Dragon" from now on.

Update 3
It's about the "Elemental Chain Combos" which this time are also introduced in the official site.
Attribute sets have a wide variety of skills in "BOF6", including the familiar magic "Flare (Padamu)" fire system. By unleashing combinations of skills with the same attribute, its possible to create an "Elemental Chain Combo" and trigger flashy effects with huge damage.

For example..."Flare (Padamu)" + "Fireblast (Padaama)" => Fire Elemental Chain Combo activation! I'd say. It may sound difficult, but don't worry since there is a feature which shows at which moment you can activate them in-game!
In addition, skills and others can activate these effects with the cooperation between players, this new element has greatly developed battles.

Update 4
This time is about the Empire's knight, "Klaus".
With the background of their strong armed force, the Schwarz Empire overwhelmed small countries one after another all around the world. "Klaus" is the strongest among the knights, said to be a man without equal within the Empire. A member of a knight unit assigned special missions, he seemingly was also involved in the attack of Dragnier Village, the hero's hometown.

His hidden power will become increasingly apparent as the story of the "Legend of the Dragon" unfolds.

Update 5
This time its concept art.
A collapsed stone building with lush green coming from the gaps. Like relics where quite a "long time has passed", there's a statue with the shape of a dragon in a mysterious space.
The "Dragon Statue" has always appeared in important scenes in the "Breath of Fire" series, built to guide the hero in the right path. The "Dragon Statue" stood in such places like empty ruins.

I wonder what role will they play in "BOF6".

Update 6
This time is a monster that appeared in the first BOF, "Killer Helm" (Note: Midget in the English script).
It's a nostalgic monster for those BOF fans! They were nasty little monsters with high attack power. Enjoy monsters from previous works because they will continue appearing in "BOF6"!

Update 7
This time is about the Knight team's chief of staff, "Elise".
In the official promotion site she has a look that gives the impression she's a little cold, but here we introduce her smiling!
She's a member of the Knight team just like "Klaus", and she's also deeply involved in the story around the "Dragon Tradition". In addition, though actually she also has the same characteristics as "Klaus" and hidden power...

Update 8
Today I will introduce Dragnier Village's "Jubei".
An elderly beastman with abundant life experience, he provides advice on various events in the village. Having gained the trust of the residents, he's become the village's spiritual pillar.
In response to the Empire's attack, and to support the hero who works on the reconstruction of the destroyed Dragnier Village, his aged body has started to stir up...

Update 9
Today I will introduce Dragnier Village's "Amelia".
A laid-back gentle personality, though she's sometimes a bit goofy, there's constantly a smile around her.
She has learned magic in the past, and because of that sometimes there will be glimpses of intelligence at the end of her conversations.
Maybe her goofy side is actually premeditated...?

(Translator Note: The kana in her name is used for the common name "Amelia", but it's worth pointing out they are also the same ones as "Myria", with an extra "a" at the beginning)

Update 10
Today I will introduce Dragnier Village's "Gilliam".

He lives in Dragnier Village as the protector of the "Forest of the Dawn" and what's left of its still-abundant and invaluable greenery. Having the makings of a warrior since birth, he's a veteran combatant with a strong body gained through a constant daily training.
In order to protect both the forest and his friends, he's willing to risk even his very own life.

(Note: The kanji used to describe him as a "combatant" could literally be translated as "being a match for thousands" (万夫不当). Though nice to mention it.)

Update 11
Today I will introduce "Peridot".

With beautiful green hair and eyes reminiscent of jewelry, she's a woman with the characteristics of a minstrel.

Traveling the world for personal purposes, she stopped by chance in Dragnier Village on her way.

To the benefit of the villagers and the Hero wounded during the attack, she will lend a hand in the reconstruction of Dragnier Village.

Although she has a laconic personality which doesn't represent emotions well, she actually possess a gentle heart and is full of compassion.

Update 12:
Producer Sugiura here.

We have decided to postpone the official launch of "BOF6" from summer 2014 to spring 2015. For all the users who are looking forward to it, I'm really sorry. I apologize from the bottom of my heart.

The reason for the delay is that, even while this is a title that can be played on smarthphones, it was determined we'd like to get a little more development time in order to realize the quantity and quality of content that can be comparable to those of the previous works.

Since initial tests will be conducted this winter, please be patient until then.

Update 13:
Little by little, but I'll introduce in development game screenshots.

It's the series' familiar monsters, the "Eye Gumi"/"Eye Goo". Full of expressions? These animations are when they block the player's path.

The composition from previous works has also adviced this "Eye Goo".

Update 14:
The second is the Community.

You can develop it little by little as you progress through the adventure. Since there are plenty of buildings and decorations, any one player can enjoy it to their preferences.

Besides, they also will be able to create powerful weapons and armors.


Update 15:
In addition, the 13th single of Haruka Tomatsu "Fantastic Soda!!" with a recording of BOF6's tehme song "In Our Hands" was released today. Included in this CD are "BOF6" stickers with enclosed benefits.

These benefits are a participation coupon for the "BOF6" upcming test and an original Fellow voiced by Haruka Tomatsu, "Ruka".

By all means, please check it out.
http://www.tomatsuharuka.com/

Update 16:
In addition, we've released a special edited version of the Anime PV with the theme song "In Our Hands" as BGM. Its contents provides a feel of the beginning of the story of the dragon.

Feature-length version of the animated PV including powerful battle scenes and Nina spreading her wings is scheluded to be published with the initial test implementation.



Update 17:
Today I will introduce "Nina".

A descendant of the Wing Clan that were able to fly into the sky, and in the past could turn into Great Birds, she has been traveling the world to find her missing sister.

Although Nina has been at the mercy of the world's great waves, she's will soon find herself at the center of those waves. Fate sleeps within her... she holds the key to draw the answer, the ancient "Song of the Dragon".

Update 18:
Yahoo everyone, here's the Teaching Girl!
I'll be going to deliver all the good news I'm aware of the upcoming "Breath of Fire 6 Guardians of the White Dragons".

Uhm, a wallpaper has been published in the promotional site, for personal computers and smarthphones.

Also, my introduction has been added to the characters' page, it says I'm "a mysterious girl who speaks in riddles"...hehehe.

Well then, goodbye♪

Update 19:
I'm really sorry we weren't able to do the beta test during this year.
Thank you for waiting until next year, this provided us a chance to further improve the quality of the game itself.

This are the final 2 screenshots of the year.
Images from the end-of-year in-house beta testing.
Please continue your support of "Breath of Fire 6 Guardians of the White Dragons" in this next year.

New update in Facebook and Twitter:

"Today I will introduce "Peridot".

With beautiful green hair and eyes reminiscent of jewelry, she's a woman with the characteristics of a minstrel.

Traveling the world for personal purposes, she stopped by chance in Dragnier Village on her way.

To the benefit of the villagers and the Hero wounded during the attack, she will lend a hand in the reconstruction of Dragnier Village.

Although she has a laconic personality which doesn't represent emotions well, she actually possess a gentle heart and is full of compassion."


Now the updates are every week, so i presume between two and four updates left before release. And not to forget there's still two more slots in the characters section in the official site, plus other empty slots in other sections (Fishing, Metropolis). So there's still more information to reveal in the next few weeks, I'm really curious.

So there are 350 "initial fellows", as in 350 playable characters who are available right from the start? And they are able to reclass? Sounds overwhelming, and just thinking about it makes me believe this will be way different from any BoF game we already know.
