5pb And Chiptune Band Team Up For Phantom Breaker Music Video

5pb/Mages, developers of games like Steins;Gate and Phantom Breaker, have teamed up with Nintendocore band, I Fight Dragons, for a music video mash-up featuring the song “Move,” from their recent album, DEMOlitions. The music video features in-game footage from Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds, as well as in-game sprites of the band members.

 

“People will probably wonder what the impetus was for such a collaboration,” said Gail Salamanca, US PR Manager, Mages. “I’m actually a huge fan of the band and felt the need to somehow Voltron the awesomeness of I Fight Dragon’s chiptune inspired rock sound and Phantom Breaker’s 8-bit retro action into something that fans of the band and game could enjoy.”

 

You can watch the video above. Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds is available to download via Xbox Live Arcade.

    That was pretty damn cool actually. Was kinda more like a musical themed game trailer. But will definitely be checking out this band.

    Thanks 5pb! Bring over Steins;Gate already!

      And port Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds to the PS3!

        I second that, still waiting for a PSN release.

    “I’m actually a huge fan of the band and felt the need to somehow Voltron the awesomeness”
    Now I need to work the phrase “Voltron the awesomeness” into everyday conversation.

    I remember Gail from he was at Aksys. Nice to see he’s in the game – so to speak!

    I thought the girl from the thumbnail was Mikasa.

    I quit enjoyed that. I wish the band members with their sprites could be playable, too.

    Cool. I still think that Phantom Breaker Battlegrounds is what the series needed to be from the beginning. Fighting game was pretty bad, but this is still something much more worthwhile.
