While the fighting cast of characters in Phantom Breaker is nearly 100% original, a couple of characters should be very familiar for a number of anime viewers. That is because it has two guest characters that can be unlocked from relatively popular anime series. This includes Steins;Gate’s Kurisu and Chaos;HEAd’s Rimi, which the attentive anime viewer will realize are both anime licensed by FUNimation.
As such the 7sixty crew decided to take a stop over that the FUNimation office and offered the guys there a chance to try out the game early on an Xbox development kit. While the footage of them trying out the game wasn’t released, the below gameplay trailer was which shows the battle between Rimi from Chaos;HEAd and Kurisu from Steins;Gate. Also released was a small handful of new screenshots which can be seen below, also featuring Rimi and Kurisu. Expect Phantom Breaker to be released within the next few months as it is slated for release early this year.
