While PlayStation 3 owners continue to lash out in regards to the lack of a steady RPG stream on their beloved console, Keiji Inafune, Capcom's head of Research and Development, is going in the opposite direction by proclaiming that RPGs just don't sell well enough outside of Japan to make them worth committing to. In a recent interview with 1up.com, Inafune was asked if Capcom had any plans on bringing back the Breath of Fire franchise, his answer, of course, was something we didn't particularly want to hear.
"There are currently no plans on making a new Breath of Fire game," Inafune says. "Apart from that, regarding RPG titles, they are very popular in Japan, but only certain RPG titles sell so Capcom doesn't really need to even consider making these titles as an option. There's a low possibility that we'll be making one in the near future."
