Meanwhile, the fate of the actual Phantom Breaker fighting game in North America is still unknown. Back in November, publisher, 7Sixty stated: “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. We are listening and are working hard on finding solutions.”

    It’s been a while since I’ve played Scott Pilgrim, and this is looking like that if it had more than the five months they were given. When’s it supposed to be coming out again?

    • Wappuli

      Official homepage says february 27.

  • passthegrenadeplease

    This looks pretty sweet and it seems like it has some multiplayer functionality? It’s def on my radar for sure now!:P

    • SAB CA

      Up to 4 players Online and Offline! Beating Scott Pilgrim and Double Dragon Neon in online play reguard on day 1. And with a VS mode akin to Guardian Heroes / Many 8/16 bit BEU’s.

      • The real question is, will Battle Grounds play as well as Double Dragon Neon?

        • SAB CA

          Surely, for many, it’ll potentially play better! People who found Neon “slow” will probably find this much more up their alley. People who found Neon to be well developed should find a pottentially even more developed game here.

    Cocoa can use god finger and heat end huh

  • Muffum

    Wait where did all of these characters come from. I swear last time I heard about this game, Mikoto, Yuzuha, Itsuki, and Waka were the only playable characters. I guess I’m just blind. And deaf. And stupid.

    • SAB CA

      The first 4 were story mode characters. These new 4 Cannot be played in that mode, but can be played in Co-Op Play (online and offline) and in Battleground mode (4p versus mode).
      2 of them were just revealed today, too, so don’t be too hard on yourself ;)

  • I really thought this was coming out on Tuesday. I checked the store and everything.

    • NeoStrayCat

      The last article stating a release date was misleading/lied, it was supposed to be an announced release date, which will be on the 27th, which is on a Wednesday for XBLA.

  • Like Cocoa’s finisher the most

  • Quinton Cunningham

    It’s a shame the fighter is pretty much cancelled for an English release now. After their Facebook update this morning, I’m not holding my breath anymore.

    • NeoStrayCat

      Not really, its not a cancellation notice, its just a status update mentioning how hard they’re trying to release it, too much red tape and such, that, and they’ll hope to have a definitive word before too long, whether good or bad, on the fate of the game.

    Crap I thought this would be for ps3 as well. Oh well guess I’ll try to get it when I get xboxlive back.
