Publisher 7sixty has announced that it will be distributing the Xbox 360 fighting title Phantom Breaker in North America in early 2012. The 2D brawler features cel-shaded anime-style graphics, with "a host of spectacular special moves, high-impact combos and a counter system that’s easy to pick up but takes a lifetime to master", according to the press release.
Phantom Breaker will be released as a special edition in the US, including a mini strategy guide, concept artwork by Japanese manga artist Hiro Suzuhira, a desk calendar featuring characters from the game and two double-sided posters.
The game revolves around the story of a Japanese fighting tournament organized by a mysterious character named Shadow, where each fighter must run a gauntlet of increasingly dangerous opponents. Those who win the tournament may make their most heartfelt wish come true.
