Overview

Phantom Breaker is a 2D fighting game developed and published by 5pb in Japan back in June 2011. A US release was initially planned on February 28, 2012 by the company 7Sixty (a subsidiary of South Peak Interactive), but it has been delayed continuously.

Gameplay

Upon selecting their character, the player is give the choice to use a "Quick style" or a "Hard style." As the names might suggest, the quick style is for players who like playing fast and aggressive with flashy combos, while the hard style is for players who prefer to play defensively and strike when the time is right for more damage.

The game also contains "Tension Gauges," which can be used to increase the character's overall speed and power or sacrificed to perform a super move.

Story

Set in Tokyo, Japan, a mysterious organization known only as "Phantom" has organized a fighting tournament throughout the city and has invited a select group of people to participate. They claim that the winner of all the contestants will have one wish, any wish, granted to them. Some characters wish to discover who is behind Phantom and destroy the organization, others are lured by the promise of a wish granted, and some just want a place to fight against worthy foes.
