By Spencer . November 6, 2012 . 12:20am

We’re not sure when (if?) the Phantom Breaker fighting game is coming out, but 5pb is definetly going to release a Phantom Breaker beat em up. Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds has four perhaps familiar characters: Mikoto Nishina, Waka Kumon, Itsuki Kouno, and Yuzuha Fujibayashi. In this game you move from left to right beating up anything in your path like an ’80s arcade game without all or the quarters.


The official blog says 5pb should be able to release Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds early next year and the game is currently in the debugging phase. Downloadable content is also in the works for Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds.


The producer also wrote a message specifically for overseas fans:

    What’s the situation with Phantom Breaker’s US release? That game has been delayed so many times I’m not even sure when it’s supposed to be out.

    • Quinton Cunningham

      According to Gamestop, it’s been outright cancelled. They’ve been quiet about it on their Facebook page too.

  • How retro………..awesome
    Yuzuha FTW!
    It’s games likes these that makes it hard for me to decide whether I should get a 360 or not.

  • carlospsp

    it does not seem to be a good game =/

    edit: oh, the beat’em up, not the fighting o.o

  • Totally buying on Day One! :D

  • Grenalie

    If it isn’t my biggest pet peeve, calling non 8-bit things 8-bit.

  • walmart says its being shipped out at the end of the moth. here’s there link.

      Poor guy. You still have hope that a game released a year and a half ago in Japan and delayed for NA over a year is still coming out. Battle Grounds Cocoa’s Nightmare Attack is more likely to be released before this game is.

    This game lost its window and at this point no longer offers anything better than the competition. If they are “seriously” still considering bringing this over, maybe they should stop wasting time and work on a sequel with better characters and play mechanics. I may consider playing a 2 year old mediocre fighting game…if it was 400 points on XBLV.(not really)
