The upcoming anime fighter, Phantom Breaker [Cancelled]
, will be getting a follow up next year. Defying expectations the upcoming Phantom Breaker: Battle Ground
will not be another 2D anime-influenced fighting game but rather a 2D side-scrolling anime-influenced action game.
At the moment we know very little beyond it will have 4 player cooperative play and also a competitive arena mode. Jumping from planes, similar to Guardian Heroes
, will likely be a primary gameplay mechanic. Phantom Breaker
will be available June 12th in North America after suffering a number of delays. Phantom Breaker: Battle Ground
will be available for XBLA sometime in 2013.
