Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Overdrive Walloping PS4 This Summer
Following a successful release on Vita and Steam, Phantom Breaker is making its way to PS4 this summer. What makes the game worthy of an Overdrive title tag?
New features for the PS4 release:
New skills and abilities for deeper character customization: Triple Jumps, Air Dash Attacks, Shadow Clones, and more! Increased chaos: Levels now have gigantic hordes of enemies flooding the screen, and the item drops to match. Alternate routes: Discover secret routes that lead you to new items, different enemies, and new skills! New Items: Out Range and Aura Items can now be combined to expand your tactical options. Newly arranged music: Now leveled up by the PS4! Incredible arrangements with 8 FM synthesis tones and 1 ADPCM tone!
I haven’t gotten a chance to play Phantom Breaker: Battle Ground, but the game seems to have a fervent following according to the most recent trailer’s YouTube comments. I’m also a great big fan of Guardian Heroes since playing it with my brothers on the Sega Saturn. I’m still bummed that the XBLA got that gem. Hopefully this game can soothe the burn.
The game will release at the $14.99 price point, with the Makise Kurisu DLC going for $5.99. In addition to an eight-stage Story Mode, there’s an Arcade Mode and Battleground Mode. With online/offline 4 player support, I think this will be scratching the Castle Crashers/Scott Pilgrim itch we’ve been afflicted with since the PS4’s launch. Keep an eye out for a solid release date in the coming weeks.
Anyone played this game before? Looking forward to a PS4 version?
