Exclusive: Phantom Breaker To Get Special Limited Edition Release


Last night, we reported that Mages (formerly 5pb) fighting game, Phantom Breaker, will be released in North America by a newly-established publisher named 7Sixty.


We thought Southpeak Interactive might publish Phantom Breaker overseas. An Amazon listing for the game with Southpeak attached as publisher was what first tipped us off. Following that, we got in touch with Southpeak themselves, who shared with us that they were indeed considering publishing Phantom Breaker in North America.


And they still are. A Southpeak representative revealed to us this morning that 7Sixty is a brand under the Southpeak umbrella, which is why the original Amazon listing mentioned their name.


Additionally, Siliconera can exclusively reveal that Phantom Breaker will be released in a limited edition box (above) sometime in early 2012. The limited edition box will come with a mini strategy guide with tips for each of the game’s playable characters, featuring art by Phantom Breaker artist Hiro Suzuhira.


You’ll also get a desk calendar and two double-sided posters in the limited edition box. You can find Phantom Breaker’s official website here; it has a link to an Amazon pre-order page as well.
