Rocket Panda Games announced they will develop Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Ultimate to release on PC and consoles.
Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Ultimate is a remake of the Mages-developed beat ’em up, Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds, built in Unreal Engine 5 from the ground up. This version of the game hosts enhanced visuals, improved gameplay mechanics, and an array of exciting new features, making this the definitive version of the game.
“We’re beyond thrilled to present Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Ultimate to both longtime fans and new players. Our team has poured passion and dedication into this remaster, with the goal of creating an unforgettable beat’em up experience.” said Gail Salamanca, co-founder Rocket Panda Games. “The original game garnered a dedicated fan base, and we are confident that the Ultimate edition will exceed their expectations and introduce the beloved franchise to a broader audience.”
Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Ultimate features revamped gameplay for smoother and more fluid combat, offering precision in executing punches, kicks, and special moves. Additionally, players can engage in local co-op with friends or challenge up to 8 fighters from around the world in cross-platform online multiplayer.
The roster includes playable enemy characters from the Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds universe, each with unique combat styles in Arcade Mode. The remastered original soundtrack enhances the game’s atmosphere, and an all-new opening song is performed by the Phantom Breakers, a J-Rock band consisting of in-game characters.
Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Ultimate puts players in a story centered around a mysterious figure known as the Phantom. This enigmatic individual seeks to unleash dark powers sealed within him. To achieve this, he distributed ancient weapons called the F.A. (Fu-mension Artifacts) to gifted young individuals, encouraging them to engage in battles with the promise of granting wishes to the victors. However, these battles create rifts between parallel worlds each time the Fu-mension Artifacts are used, ultimately aiding the Phantom in unsealing his powers.
The narrative follows Waka, a member of the Kumon Family tasked with protecting the world from the Phantom, and her friend Mikoto. Together, they strive to hinder the Phantom’s plans. However, in an alternate timeline, the Phantom succeeds in escaping and kidnaps Waka’s younger sister, Nagi. Determined to rescue Nagi and prevent the Phantom’s sinister scheme, Waka and Mikoto, joined by Itsuki, the self-proclaimed “Arbiter of Justice,” and Yuzuha, a ninja who resists the Phantom’s allure, embark on a mission to confront the malevolent force.
