Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds, 5pb’s super-deformed brawler, is slated for release in 2013, and this week, the publisher shared the game’s opening movie as well as in-game footage of various characters. You can check those out below:

You may have noticed that the titles for all of those videos are in English. 5pb shared both English and Japanese versions, and that’s because Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds is being released overseas as well. The producer even wrote a message for overseas fans last month.
Meanwhile, the original Phantom Breaker fighting game, which was to be published in North America this year, is nowhere in sight. The game’s U.S. publisher, 7Sixty, say that they’re currently encountering trouble and looking for solutions.
On their Facebook page, 7Sixty, wrote last month: “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.”
