New Fragile character revealed

Bandai Namco offers a look at Shin, the genius scientist


Bandai Namco offered its latest look at Fragile today, with a collection of new screenshots and a first look at the latest addition to the game's growing character family.

Joining the cast of this Wii RPG is Shin, a young scientist who's so brilliant that he faces jealousy from people around him. He's not particularly good with communication. In fact, a quote provided by Bandai Namco has him saying "Words are really an inefficient means of communication."

Shin is voiced by Toshio Furukawa. This veteran voice actor has appeared in a number of classic anime, including Dragon Ball Z and Gundam. Previous game roles for Furukawa include Young Roy Campbell in Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops and Jann Lee in the Dead or Alive series.

Joining the character, Bandai Namco offered today a first look at the game's box art. The box features artwork of main character Seto holding hands with Ren, the white-haired heroine.
