Phantom Breaker Has Guest Characters From Other 5pb Games

By Ishaan . February 2, 2011 . 8:29am

5pb’s girl-on-girl fighting game, Phantom Breaker, features character designs by visual novel artist, Hiro Suzuhira. However, the game’s connection to visual novels — 5pb’s visual novels in particular — doesn’t stop there.


Phantom Breaker features guest characters in the form of Kurisu Makise from Steins;Gate and Rimi Sakihata from Chaos;Head Noah. They’ve undergone some stylistic changes for the game, and don’t look out of place from the rest of the Phantom Breaker’s cast.


You can view more screenshots of the two over at Impress Watch. Phantom Breaker is scheduled for an Xbox 360 release in Japan on April 28th.

  • OMG RIMI!!!!!!!!! im sold

    This game…. I want it….
    Too bad its Xbox 360. <_<

    It looks great so far, but I don't plan on ever owning another Xbobx 360. =/

    damn it why is it that developers like 5pb, cave won’t put any of their games on PS3 or Wii?

    though at least G Rev is putting their Mamorukun game on PS3 which is a start.

    this game should have been multiplatfrom since it’s a fighting game and such.

    oh well what can you do :(

      5pb stated in a Famitsu 360 interview a few days ago that the 360 is their console of choice so I expect this trend will continue through 2011 at least. What their reasoning for favouring the 360 is, I don’t know, but I’d guess ease of development must be on that list.

      Interestingly Cave’s response to Famitsu 360 was rather different, and I wonder if they may be considering moving away from the 360. If that happens, I expect other companies like 5pb would be watching to see how it goes. If it was up to me I’d like to see 5pb move to a region free console or release their games as region free. I’ve not personally bought any of their titles since the PS2 days for that reason alone.

        I know Cave lately has had some not-so-pleasant things to say about Microsoft. They still seem to release their games on 360 only though… maybe they don’t have alternatives in that regard (except the iOS, which also seems to have become one of their platforms of choice).

        I wouldn’t mind seeing some multiplatform releases from these companies, but I’m afraid Sony might also be partly to blame. For example, I know they still won’t allow a straight visual novel port.

        • mirumu

          Well normally it’d take some time for a developer to change platforms. It’d be a pain to switch a project halfway through development from 360 to PS3. If Cave are going to do it I expect they’ll do so on new projects they start, and continue to release any 360 games in development for the 360 as originally planned. Could even be they’ve been doing this for some time already.

          But yes, as you say, the politics of it all could well be a factor too. It seems the 360’s minimum disc production runs and Sony’s anti-VN policies only serve to prevent games we’d buy from being produced or localised. Very annoying.

      • PrinceHeir

        yeah i know that too.

        it seems 5pb is probably observing if there’s a market on the PS3 userbase.

        let’s wait for G rev’s Mamorukon and hopefully they see some potential customers.

        yeah im glad sony made the PS3 region free(and blu ray US sames as JP)

        heck i just hope in the future all devices are region free but that would probably happen maybe 50 years from now.

    Technically, it’s not ENTIRELY a girl vs girl fighting game; there’s one guy in it lol.

    Rimi! All they’re missing is Ayase Kishimoto and Aoi Sena!

    • neocatzon

      • Guest

  • malek86

    Those graphics are a bit… blurry.

    I’d be happy if they decided to port it to the PS3 some time soon and add a bunch of additional stuff.
