Welcome to the Phantom Breaker: Omnia FAQ! We’ll be updating this post going forward with your most frequently asked questions about the game and update each question as necessary.

Q: When will the game be released?
A: Phantom Breaker: Omnia will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Steam (PC) in Q4 2021. The game will be backwards compatible and can be played on PlayStation 5 and Xbox One Series S and X machines. We will update this item once we have a more concrete date for you.

Q. Will Phantom Breaker: Omnia have rollback netcode?
A. Unfortunately, the short answer is no. The longer answer is that we totally wanted to. Our Japanese Producer has this to say about implementing rollback netcode into Phantom Breaker: Omnia.

“Regarding Rollback Netcode in Phantom Breaker: Omnia. I understand that there has been some discussion and concern among the fighting game communities, so I would like to take this opportunity to talk about rollback netcode implementation.

Since the beginning of this project, Rocket Panda Games and I have had several discussions regarding implemation in PBO.

However, because the game was based on Phantom Breaker: Extra’s existing source code, preserving the game’s essence while implementing rollback netcode would have meant building the game from scratch.

This would have been impossible to implement rollback netcode with the resources we had at the onset of this project. Our final choices came down to releasing PBO without rollback or not releasing PBO at all.

I am very aware of the demand for rollback netcode among the overseas fighting game fans, which made the decision all the more painful. Nevertheless, we are making all of the more realistic improvements to the game that we can bring you the experience possible within our means. On behalf of the entire team, I thank you all for your understanding.”

While Sakari-san pretty much sums up our feelings, I had my own personal take on the subject. You can find that thread here: https://twitter.com/RocketPandaEN/status/1322386862074310656?s=20

Q. How much will Phantom Breaker: Omnia cost?

Q. Will I need to unlock any characters?
A: Nope! All the characters in the game will be available to play from the get-go! However, not all characters have a Story Mode attached to them as it is based on the Story Mode in Phantom Breaker and Phantom Breaker: Extra. That said every character will be available to play in Arcade, VS and Online modes.

Q. Will there be DLC for the game ?
A: No.

Q: Why aren’t the original openings and ending songs in the game?
A: Unfortunately, due to music licensing restrictions having the original opening and ending sequences isn’t something that we could include.

Q: Can you switch to the original Phantom Breaker: Extra UI?
A: As far as the UI is concerned those assets were originally created in 720p so rebuilding those assets would take more time and resources, for our startup that would have been too much for us to take on.
