Steins;Gate’s Kurisu Makise Reaches Phantom Breaker As DLC This Week

By Ishaan . March 12, 2013 . 10:00am

Last week, we reported that Steins;Gate’s Kurisu Makise is being released as a downloadable character for Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds in Japan, but 5pb/Mages put out an English press release as well, for the Kurisu DLC this morning.


Kurisu will cost 400 Microsoft Points to add to the game. Additionally, the level cap of all existing characters in the game (and Kurisu, too) will be increased to level 99. Eight new achievements will be added alongside the DLC as well.


Siliconera recently had the chance to interview Sakari Masaki, the game’s producer, about creating a beat-em-up, and how he wanted to create something with an “old school” feel. You can read it here.

  • I don’t really like Steins gate but down the line I might pick up this dlc to get the level cap. :)

  • Phil Thomas

    Big fan of beat ’em ups and of Steins;Gate. I’d scoop this up in a heartbeat if it weren’t on the X360… Seems an odd choice, but oh well.

    • Mantiskilla

      Why an odd choice? The fighting game which also had her in as a character was on the 360. Makes sense to me to have this game on the same platform

    El Psy Congroo…I’m so buying this!

  • Foryth

    Yes! I’m definitely going to get this. I’m a big fan of both beat em-ups and Kurisu, and this looks just a nice as Scott Pilgrim was.

  • FetusZero

    This has just reminded me that I need to order Steins;Gate eventually.. Got the DLC though!

  • Raltrios

    If only I liked fighters…

    The beat em up is pretty fun, plays more like Guardian Heroes actually, even though I liked Scott Pilgrim more as I was more familiar w/ the chars after reading the graphic novels and watching the movie, also it has a better soundtrack (still waiting for the multiplayer DLC argh).. usually I don’t buy any XBLA titles until they go on sale (as I don’t have time to play them), but I got this game day 1 just for the Kurisu DLC :) Just got the new Tomb Raider controller too, the new d-pad is perfect for this kind of game :)

    I just d/l it, you get an achievement just from buying her :) Also the 8-bit Gate of Steiners is totally worth 400 MS pts just by itself :)
