MAGES./5pb. announced on Wednesday that it will release the Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds game for the PlayStation 4 this summer. The new Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Overdrive edition will be available in the PS Store in Japan, North America, and Europe.
In addition to upgraded graphics, the video above highlights the PlayStation 4 version's new skills, secret routes, items, and more. It will also offer the Kurisu Makise DLC pack with the popular character from Steins;Gate (with Cross Buy support with the PS Vita version).
The game launched on XBox Live Arcade in 2013. It is also available on PS Vita and PC.
MAGES./5pb. describes the game:
A mysterious man known as the Phantom has awakened and hatches a plan to unseal his dark powers. By giving ancient weapons known as the F.A. (Fu-mantion Artifacts) to youths with special abilities, he convinces them to battle each other with the promise to grant the wishes of the victors. However, each time the Fu-mantion Artifacts are used in battle, the space-time continuum weakens. This creates a rift between two parallel worlds, which will inevitably unseal the Phantom's powers.
Waka, the daughter of the Kumon Family, a clan tasked with protecting the world from the Phantom, and her friend Mikoto, attempt to stop him. However, the Phantom manages to escape and kidnaps Waka's younger sister, Nagi. Waka and Mikoto, along with Itsuki, the self-proclaimed “Ally of Justice" and Yuzuha, a ninja unpersuaded by the lure of the Phantom, set off to rescue Nagi and stop his nefarious plan.
