The team has presented a new trailer to go along with this announcement, please watch below.
Phantom Breaker Omnia is a massive update to Phantom Breaker: Extra, a 2D anime fighting game released only in Japan in 2011. For the first time in the series’ history, this chapter will be available to Western audiences including new characters, full HD graphics, and much more!
“Today, the team is ecstatic to announce ‘Phantom Breaker: Omnia’s’ release date,” said M. Panda, Executive Panda and Co-Founder of Rocket Panda Games. “The addition of new characters, features, and updates to the game has taken more time than anticipated – but for our first self-published game we had to ensure we’re producing the game to the best of our ability. The ‘Phantom Breaker: Omnia’ project has evolved far beyond a simple port and has become an enhanced and complete Phantom Breaker experience. The fire in all of our hearts will be burning next March!”
Phantom Breaker: Omnia will be the first fighting game title in the franchise to see a Western release after the successful 2013 launch of the 2D side-scrolling beat ’em up spin-off Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds which sold over 400,000 copies.
In the game, a mysterious man, known only as ‘Phantom’ appears in Tokyo, to manipulate vulnerable adolescents into fighting each other, bestowing upon them mystical weapons of great strength known as ‘Fu-mension Artifacts.’ In exchange, he promised to grant their wish if they survive. The fierce clashes between these artifacts caused distortions in space-time, which compromised the boundaries between parallel universes. The collapse of these parallel universes would ultimately break the seal, unleashing Phantom’s destructive powers.
