Steins;Gate’s Kurisu Has A Cameo 5pb’s Retro Beat ‘Em Up

By Spencer . March 3, 2013 . 10:49pm

imagePhantom Breaker: Battle Grounds, a retro beat ’em up that is kind of like Japan’s answer to Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, is available now on Xbox Live Arcade for 800 Microsoft points ($10).


5pb will add Kurisu Makise from the Steins;Gate series as a DLC cameo character for Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds on March 12. The update costs 400 Microsoft points ($5) and also affects the entire game by raising the level cap from 50 to 99. While Phantom Breaker: Battle Ground supports online play, you can only use Kurisu with other players that purchased the DLC pack.

    Okabe also has a cameo for her intro. And Ruka is a part of her moveset. God Steins; Gate is glorious.

    • Wappuli

      There’s also Mayuri in her victory pose.

    • Aoshi00

      Okabe and Kurisu’s lab coat pose looks so cute :)

      I was going to wait to get this later since I didn’t like Phantom
      Breaker the original fighting game too much.. but w/ Kurisu, have no choice but to get this right away, also a big fan of the Scott Pilgrim game. Gate of Steiner was one of the best video game themes ever,
      8-bit ver sounds glorious :)

    this game is so much fun! it’s actually better than scott pilgrim imo. bugfree as well. and whatever happened to the scott pilgrim dlc?

    • raymk

      It might be better but it ain’t on ps3 :(. That said I really want to play it but alas I can’t right now.

      • Christian Wright

        yeah that does suck. most of 5pb visual novels like steins gate and also phantom breaker itself were on the 360 so I guess they figured it’d be the perfect platform to release it on. Hopefully it does appear on the ps3 though since steins gate did make it too ps3.

    • The Watcher

      it is not bugfree, there is a glitch that resets your characters level to 1.

      • Christian Wright

        I havent experienced it. hopefully theyre aware of it and patch it soon. especially with dlc on the way

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    My……….favorite anime character can’t be this Chibi!!!^_^

  • Zonic505

    Great to see DLC support so soon, especially with one that’s a cameo from another series.

    Also, here’s the trailer:

  • Mantiskilla

    I guess this is not a real surprise considering she was in the fighting game as well

  • 愛憎

    Does anyone else feel that DLC should not be half the price of the game?

    • I don’t the game is already discounted.

      • 愛憎

        The game is discounted? Is it originally more than $10? I would still argue that the price is quite steep for a single character and level cap in this sort of game. I only say this because I would like to play as Kurisu, but I think I will pass at the price of $5.

    • But I do see where you are coming from.

  • This is my first xbla purchase and I really like this game. I hope to get a good co-op game going soon.

  • Gustavo

    I still want this game on PSN.

  • Visa Vang

    You can get it now for the low price of 4294967295 MS points with -1 MS points on your account!!

    • Aoshi00

      Was thinking they would give us 1 MS point for d/ling the Kurisu pack lol.. I think on Jpn XBL, if one were to d/l Cero Z content w/o a credit card (not being over 18), the MS pt would show up as a ridiculous amount too..

      Just got the game and played a little bit, it’s pretty fun, the goons are a bit creepy looking.. didn’t realize there’s voice acting too..
