Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Overdrive can be one heck of a fun beat-'em-up on PlayStation 4, but only under the right conditions. This is a downloadable title that's seemingly got plenty going for it, from its attractive sprite-based art style to its over-the-top combat, but it struggles all too often to fulfil its potential...
Smash and grab
The brilliant looking Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Overdrive has been given a worldwide PlayStation 4 release date courtesy of its bombastic new trailer - and it's probably arriving sooner than you think. The side-scrolling beat-'em-up blasts onto Sony's new-gen system this month, on the 21st July. It'll set you back $14.99, but...
Keep up if you can
Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Overdrive looks absolutely mental, but we mean that in the best possible way. At times during its newest trailer, you can barely see what's happening on the screen because of the sheer amount of carnage, but with a catchy soundtrack and promising role-playing game mechanics, this PlayStation 4...
Originally released last year for the Xbox 360, Phantom Breaker was a fighting game that, while never seeing a Western release, generated a decent following in Japan. Having spawned an arcade and a PlayStation 3 port, it also served as the inspiration for a 2D brawler named Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds, which, after appearing on the...
There’s enough doom on Planet PlayStation Vita to keep id Software in business until the sun implodes, but that doesn’t mean that the handheld is dead yet. In fact, 5pb has quietly announced that the system’s mere days away from receiving a secret smash: pixelated punch-‘em-up Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds. Originally...
You may have heard of Liberation Maiden – Suda51's rather short shooter that launched as part of the Nintendo 3DS game compilation Guild01. Well, did you know that it has a sequel in the form of a visual novel? Previously released on the PlayStation 3 back in December, Liberation Maiden: SIN is now headed to the PlayStation Vita...
This gathering's dead
For a franchise featuring such cute characters, 5pb’s visual novel series Corpse Party is anything but adorable. As such, faint-hearted players need not apply to Corpse Party: Blood Drive, the latest instalment in the hideous horror brand. Due out on 24th July in Japan, this outing aims to render the scares in 3D for the...
Side-scrolling brawlers may have fallen out of favour a little since the 16-bit days, but they’re making something of a comeback on the PlayStation Vita. Vanillaware’s striking Dragon’s Crown has already proven that beat-‘em-ups can be commercially viable in the current handheld market – and that means that you should be...
In an age where game development costs rival summer blockbusters, it’s becoming increasingly difficult for the industry to find space for hidden gems. Once the crown jewel of the PSone era, these relatively unknown titles have become less common outside of the indie space. Fortunately, they still exist in Japan, where outings such as...
You've, er, got red on you
Corpse Party: Blood Drive, the third entry in 5pb’s horrific interactive novel series, is set to spook the PlayStation Vita later this year. Announced in Famitsu magazine – and translated by Siliconera – the title will further the fearsome narrative of the haunted Heavenly Host Elementary School. The sequel will pick...
