5pb is stepping out of their comfort circle with an original fighting game for Xbox 360. Phantom Breaker classifies characters as either quick style or hard style.
Quick style characters, as the name implies, are nimble. They’re fast, good at evading attacks, and have long combos. Hard style characters specialize in defense and heavy hitting attacks. Quick characters dodge. Hard characters block. Both are vulnerable to throws.
Glowing orbs and lightning effects appear when players trigger the counterbalance system. It’s possible to cancel a rival’s attack with one of your own in Phantom Breaker, but 5pb didn’t explain how this works. Until next time, here’s a look at the game’s cast of characters.
