Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Coming To PS4

Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds is already available on Xbox 360, Vita, and PC, but soon developer 5pb is bringing an enhanced version of this brawler to PS4.

The original version of this under-the-radar game is surprisingly good, but the PS4 version promises to be even better. Under the new name Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Overdrive, the retro-inspired title offers tweaks like new skills, more enemies, alternate routes, and extra items. To see some of these enhancements in action, check out the trailer below.

The game will cost $15, and releases sometime this summer.

Our Take
I love games like River City Ransom, Castle Crashers, and Scott Pilgrim vs The World, so this makes me happy. I always meant to play this on 360, but never got around to it. Hopefully the PS4 release will give me (and similarly minded gamers) a reason to dive in and cause some chaos. I only wish that the release date were more concrete.
