Now, Nitroplus are coming full circle, remaking the original game in the updated style of the 2009 anime. Nitroplus’ remake of Phantom of Inferno is due out next month on the Xbox 360, and they’ve posted new screenshots showing what it looks like. Take a look at some of them below, along with a few screens of the original Phantom of Inferno that we tossed in, for the sake of comparison.














Phantom of Inferno will be released on October 25th for the Xbox 360 in Japan. The game will have a new voice track, an updated story inspired by the anime series, and Nitroplus even consulted firearms experts while modelling the game’s guns in 3D, to help ensure accuracy.
