Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds English Videos Show Off 5pb’s Brawler

Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds, 5pb’s super-deformed brawler, is slated for release in 2013, and this week, the publisher shared the game’s opening movie as well as in-game footage of various characters. You can check those out below:


Opening Movie:



Itsuki Kouno: Special Moves:



Cocoa: Special Moves:



Yuzuha Fujibayashi: Special Moves:



Waka Kumon: Special Moves:



Mikoto Nishina: Special Moves:



M: Special Moves:



You may have noticed that the titles for all of those videos are in English. 5pb shared both English and Japanese versions, and that’s because Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds is being released overseas as well. The producer even wrote a message for overseas fans last month.


Meanwhile, the original Phantom Breaker fighting game, which was to be published in North America this year, is nowhere in sight. The game’s U.S. publisher, 7Sixty, say that they’re currently encountering trouble and looking for solutions.


On their Facebook page, 7Sixty, wrote last month: “There are a number of factors going on behind the scenes that have prevented us from speaking out as to the fate of Phantom Breaker and until all avenues have been explored and all parties involved reached an agreement, the fate is still uncertain as of this time.”

  • AweOfShe

    Definitely grabbing this one. Been awhile since I enjoyed a new arcade-style beat-em-up. :)

    … I was actually expecting something else. Oh well, you never know until you try… but no Xbox means no try dammit.

  • z_merquise

    That looks fun. It’s too bad that I don’t have an XBox 360.

    Beating up lots of thugs as a cute combat maid is always a good thing.

    I really wish to see more 2D arcade beat-em-ups since this is one of my favorite genre.

  • Pockystix

    looks cute

    wonder when it’ll show up on PSN o w o

  • Sergio Briceño

    The cat ears guy at the end of the videos is SO disturbing. O_O
