BackgroundSet in an underground world that time has forgotten, this newest Breath of Fire game takes players on a journey to the surface of the Earth. Ryu, a Ranger for the underground civilization, is on his routine patrol assignment when he has a sudden "awakening" and is determined to discover what lurks above. Follow Ryu, and other members of the underground society, as they fight their way to the surface against monsters and adversaries.
