Rocket Panda Games ha announced that its first game, Phantom Breaker: Omnia, will be coming to Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and Steam in 2021.
The game is a huge update from 2013's Phantom Breaker: Extra which was released by Mages. The series has come on a long way since I reviewed an import copy of the very first game in 2011 (read it Here) .
The game will be released via Limited Run Games, though the product is not yet listed.
From the Press Release:
"We are thrilled to bring to the world the definitive version of the Phantom Breaker fighting game, 'Phantom Breaker: Omnia,' a game that was nearly lost to the annals of gaming history," said M. Panda, Executive Panda and Co-Founder of Rocket Panda Games. "As fans of the franchise and video games at large, our mission was not only to port the game to modern consoles but enhance the experience beyond its original scope—a philosophy we plan to extend to every title that Rocket Panda Games releases in the future."
Phantom Breaker: Omnia will be the first fighting game title in the franchise to see a Western release after the successful 2013 launch of the 2D side-scrolling beat’em up spin-off Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds which sold over 400,000 copies.
Story A mysterious man, known only as ‘Phantom’ appeared in Tokyo—the capital city of Japan—and manipulated vulnerable adolescents into fighting each other, bestowing upon them mystical weapons of great strength known as ‘Fu-mension Artifacts.’ In exchange, he promised to grant their wish if they survive.
Unbeknownst to the combatants, the fierce clashes between Fu-mension Artifacts caused distortions in space-time, which compromised the boundaries between parallel universes. The collapse of these parallel universes would ultimately break the seal, unleashing Phantom’s destructive powers.
20 Character Roster! Includes all the characters and guest characters from Phantom Breaker: Extra like Kurisu Makise from Steins;Gate including two brand new characters created specifically for Phantom Breaker Omnia.
