Phantom Breaker Omnia is now among the 2021 games with a release date delay. Mages and Rocket Panda Games announced it won’t be out this year as planned. Instead, due to certain developmental elements like preparing it for four platforms and releasing it in multiple regions at once pushed it back. It now has an Early 2022 release window instead.
Here is the full statement from Director and Producer Masaki “Sakari P” Sakari explaining the current status of Phantom Breaker Omnia. Sakari noted that preparing it for a worldwide audience and ensuring it runs on all four platforms pushed it back.
I’m Sakari “P,” the Director/Producer for Phantom Breaker Omnia. Today, I confess we have a rather unfortunate announcement to make.
Phantom Breaker Omnia, for which we have been targeting a late 2021 release, must inevitably be delayed to Early 2022. We understand that a lot of you have been waiting to play this game, and to those long-enduring fans I owe a huge apology.
The truth is that the porting and localization processes have taken longer than I anticipated… and I take full responsibility for underestimating the scope of these very important tasks.
However, I am pleased to say that as of right now, the game is running on all of our target platforms (the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC), and we will begin QA very soon. We should be able to announce a release date in the coming months as we keep an eye the debut process.
I promise everyone that you WILL be playing this game in the first few months of 2022. I realize that this delay may be concerning to some of the fans out there, but there is no scenario in which this game will not be released, so please be patient with us as we continue to work hard on bringing this game to you.
Thank you, everyone, for your continued support!
As a reminder, Phantom Breaker Omnia is the latest version of Phantom Breaker Extra. This 2D fighter features multiple characters from different Mages games fighting it out. 20 people total will appear, with two being new, and there will be things like different soundtrack options and balance adjustments.
Due to the Phantom Breaker Omnia release date delay, people will see the PS4, Switch, Xbox One, and PC game in Early 2022.
