Phantom Breaker is a fighting video game developed by 5pb., Delta Factory and R.U.N, and published by 5pb. in 2011 for Xbox 360. An Arcade version of the game running on Sega's RingEdge 2 Arcade Board, titled Phantom Breaker: Another Code, was released in 2013.

Gameplay[]

Phantom Breaker is a 2D fighting game that supports two distinctive fighting styles, the player is able to choose between Quick style and Hard style. Quick style focuses on quick hits and combos while the other is more about defense.

When the player reaches Overdrive mode, their character might get an extra increase in speed or defense. Every attack the player releases can cancel out their enemy's attack and raise their tension gauge; timing it right will maximize the player's gauge to boost their attack power.

Plot[]

Our story unfolds in Japan's capital city, Tokyo...

A mysterious man named Phantom works from the shadows to lure powerful fighters driven by strong desires into perpetual battle against one another. In order to make their wishes come true, these "Duelists" must wield their weapons known as F.A.s (Fu-mension Artifacts) and defeat their opponents. As their intense clashes shake the fabric of space-time itself, questions abound.

What do the Duelists desire?

What is Phantom scheming to achieve through this?

And who will be the last one standing to make their wish come true?
