El Segundo, Calif. – October 15, 2020 – Rocket Panda Games today announced its first game, Phantom Breaker: Omnia, a massive update to Phantom Breaker: Extra, a 1-vs-1 2D anime fighter originally released by MAGES in 2013, will be coming to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam in 2021.
“We are thrilled to bring to the world the definitive version of the Phantom Breaker fighting game, ‘Phantom Breaker: Omnia,’ a game that was nearly lost to the annals of gaming history,” said M. Panda, Executive Panda and Co-Founder of Rocket Panda Games. “As fans of the franchise and video games at large, our mission was not only to port the game to modern consoles but enhance the experience beyond its original scope—a philosophy we plan to extend to every title that Rocket Panda Games releases in the future.”
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.
A mysterious man, known only as ‘Phantom’ appeared in Tokyo—the capital city of Japan—and manipulated 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.
Unbeknownst to the combatants, the fierce clashes between Fu-mension 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.
