ORIGINAL STORY: Capcom has announced a new online instalment of its classic role-playing series Breath of Fire to be released exclusively for PC, tablets and smartphones.

Breath of Fire 6 is due to be released next year, Japanese blog Esuteru announced (thanks, NeoGAF).

The game is being specifically built for touch-controlled devices, although you'll be able to share progress across platforms and also pick up your campaign on PC.

It's not the first time that the Breath of Fire series has appeared on mobile platforms, but it is the first numbered instalment to do so, and the first time a main instalment has not debuted on a home console.

The original Breath of Fire arrived in 1993 for SNES, although the series switched to PlayStation from the third game. Breath of Fire 4 followed in 2000, before Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter for PlayStation 2, back in 2002.

We've asked Capcom about a release outside of Japan.
