Enjoying a considerable following on Xbox Live, developer 5PB?announces the arrival of side-scrolling beat-em-up game Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds on the PlayStation Network (PSN) for the PS Vita handheld console. It is slated for a July 29 release.
Available on Xbox Live Arcade (XBLA) since February last year, Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds is the spin-off version of 5PB?s 2D game Phantom Breaker and is described as a ?combination of 8-bit brawler games? retro aesthetics and modern 3D technology.?
The game was noted for its four-player co-op modes, good combo system, several unlockable characters and multiple modes where players can earn XP and level up their characters. The upcoming title will also introduce characters from Phantom Breaker including Waka, Mikoto, Yuzuha, and Itsuki. It will also offer a DLC that will feature the character named Makise Kurisu from 5PB?s popular visual novel called ?Steins;Gate.?
