Title: Phantom Breaker
Post by: Retro Respecter on November 10, 2010, 08:43:13 PM
I am not sure if anyone cares but:

Andria Sang posted up some information on a new 2D fighter coming to the XBOX360 called Phantom Breaker, developed by 5pb. Though not many details are known at this time, it's said the game is to have "simple controls" with the gameplay system including both a "Burst and Tension Gauge". Sounds like they could be taking a page out of BlazBlue gameplay system, but we'll have to wait and see!

There is a Famitsu scan which you can check out below that apparently contains more information about the game. Once more details surface we will be sure to post them up!

Thanks to Nite for sending in this tip!

gg/bb stole everything they are from doujing games anyway, so even if yiour sentence it's true it's more than deserved for the subgenre from which arksys stole everything to take something back.

Can't really say much because there are no gameplay videos, so thus, I do not have an opinion yet.

The character designs are not original at all, but there's a small chance it could be good as a fighting game. I just want to see some gameplay videos to get a better idea of what this game will play like. Thats all.

If there is even a story, I am going to assume that girl in goth lolita clothing is the Phantom Breaker, or the sword is the Phantom Breaker.

We have...
Gothic Loli with Sword
Barehanded Bishounen with some sort of glove or brace on his hand or something
Maid
From what I can make out in the famitsu scans, there is a girl in brown holding a gun.
Pink lolita styled loli with magic staff
Another gothic loli, only with blonde hair and a club made of gems or something
A girl in a tux
A miko

Don't forget that Blazblue's character design wasn't all too original either, but it was a good fighting game with an even better story.

Why would that be?
The artwork?
The fact that it's a fighter, and Japan likes fighting games?

TBH I'm not seeing how this could even be successful as a commercial game, unless the gameplay is game changing.

Just from the screens I can tell how this is gonna play.  Hur hur air dash, burst, air combos, typical of this type of game, cramming a bunch of other mechanics in. 

God what happened to the days where you just had a handful of dudes from all over the world pummeling each other in a tournament?

Those people added a combo counter and everyone else said, "How can we make that number thing on the screen go higher?"  And they did. Its all Capcom's fault for making every combo based and stupid little mechanics game come to life.

Yay, another shitty animu lolicon game with a wimpy looking girly bishounen protagonist, crappy art, and screen filling effects, that will probably be tacked along with your typical shitty doujin gameplay mechanics.

Just like every other 2D sprite based fighting game to come out of Japan in the last 5 years that wasn't made by SNK, with the exception of the last few Power Instinct installments.

Game feels really boring. I mean, their moves don't really atract me, they feel really weak and slow. And they're not that amazing, feels like some normal moves stuck together to form a super in the majority of characters. I don't think it will be successful after seeing that video. Too bad, I really like characters that use pile bunkers, and one of them had that.

Quite a great article there! I certainly didn't mean to say all fighting games in the 90s were ugly SF2 clones. Just that I remember going to the arcade and seeing a ton of those; there was a huge amount of crappy SF2 wannabees, which didn't actually add a lot to the gameplay but were just part of the era. Maybe the same thing is happening here.

They are more than just imitators, they're innovators.  The Street Fighter series are, too.  They feature some ideas that are unique and some ideas that have been done before in Konami's Yie Ar Kung-Fu and these other pre-SFII fighting games (http://www.hardcoregaming101.net/fighters/fighters.htm).


When Video System created Tao Taido, they focused on unique ideas more than good gameplay, but it didn't become successful enough.

Fighter's History is the opposite of Tao Taido.  While it doesn't feature many unique ideas other than the "weak point system", its gameplay made it become successful enough to not only be sued by Capcom, but to also have some sequels.

Phantom Breaker: Extra is an updated version of Phantom Breaker, featuring enhanced graphical effects, new characters and stages. Mages shared a new trailer for the fighting game today, and you can check it out below:

I do because I bought it last week or so for 5$. the DLC is way over priced though and I'm sure this will be no different.

I wish they released the actual fighter outside of Japan.

I would like to get another chance at playing it and figuring out how the fuck the clashing system works.

They didn't release it because it was fucking terrible.

US Vita version of spinoff will be released in summer. (http://www.siliconera.com/2014/07/04/phantom-breaker-extra-gauged-u-s-release/)
Also, a chance that Extra might be localized.

They haven't announced that they're localizing Extra yet.
They're still gauging interest.

S.D. you're hilarious. Tell me more, won't you? :)

Anyways, some folks have been streaming online play from the Japanese PS3 version to show interest for 5pb's facebook page letting them know people are interested in having Phantom Breaker: Extra come to America.

The game is fun and doesn't require the normal button inputs similar to your Capcom and SNK fighters. Even beginners who are new to the series won't have much difficulty getting into it.

I can tell you that if you think that Phantom Breaker is a good game then your quality standards have to be extremely low :)

Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Overdrive for PS4 is coming to NA this summer. (http://www.siliconera.com/2015/05/27/phantom-breaker-battle-grounds-overdrive-hits-ps4-with-new-features-this-summer/)
Quote
This is an enhanced version of their beat ‘em up with more enemies on the screen, new skills, and new items made exclusively for PlayStation 4.
Maybe the steam version will get these upgrades as well?
No word on Frau or the two Schrödinger girls yet.
EDIT: A more detailed article. (http://www.siliconera.com/2015/05/27/phantom-breaker-battle-grounds-overdrive-coming-to-north-america/)

This series is still alive.

Phantom Breaker Omnia will be released in 2021. (https://www.siliconera.com/phantom-breaker-will-be-revived-with-phantom-breaker-omnia-in-2021/)  This is the first time the mainline fighting game is coming to the west for real this time.  Extra style has been replaced by Omnia style.  Two new (currently unrevealed) characters will be added to the game.  We're also getting an English dub, with some big names in the cast.  It will be releasing on PS4, Switch, Xbox One, and Steam.  Limited physical editions will also be released for PS4 and Switch.

Another article link that shows gameplay and a trailer. (https://www.ign.com/articles/phantom-breaker-omnia-anime-fighting-game-announced)
Steam page (https://store.steampowered.com/app/1184560/Phantom_Breaker_Omnia/)

I'm honestly astonished this is happening.

Well, it's always good to see new fighting games coming out. Looks pretty cool, though a bit generic.
