The game features 2 guest characters, Kurisu Makise from Steins;Gate and Rimi Sakihata from Chaos;Head, as well as two brand new characters created specifically for Phantom Breaker Omnia.

    A mysterious man, known only as 'Phantom' appeared in Tokyothe capital city of Japanand manipulated vulnerable adolescents into fighting each other, bestowing upon them mystical weapons of great strength known as 'Fu-mension Artifacts.' In exchange, he promised to grant their wish if they survive.

    Unbeknownst to the combatants, the fierce clashes between Fu-mension Artifacts caused distortions in space-time, which compromised the boundaries between parallel universes. The collapse of these parallel universes would ultimately break the seal, unleashing Phantom's destructive powers.

    Phantom Breaker: Omnia surprises by offering solid content and robust gameplay. It brings, at the same time, simplicity and sophistication in its mechanics that distance itself (a little) from the more conventional style without reinventing the wheel. There are a few inconsistencies here and there, but overall, the game is enjoyable, fun, and very charismatic.

    Phantom Breaker: Omnia is a really interesting anime fighting game with an eclectic cast of characters, even if some of those characters’ art styles look strange and out of place. An interesting and easy-to-understand fighting system also means being able to specialize any given character with the game’s three systems and further boosting playstyle variety.

    It’s a shame that Phantom Breaker: Omnia doesn’t have rollback netcode, because that’s where most hardcore fighting game fans will perhaps be getting their fun out of it. There is still some joy to be had though, and for those who simply like to play against the CPU or another human via local versus, there’s very little to complain about. It may not be a property you’re familiar with, but if you’re a fighting game fan you’d be wise to check Phantom Breaker: Omnia out.

    Even with its smart gameplay and its complex and fun systems, Phantom Breaker: Omnia can't really compete with some of the best fighting games around, due to the lack of rollback netcode and disappointing lack of modes. Seeing it finally come to the west is still good news, and we hope a decent community will form around the game anyways, but there are better options out there for fighting game fans at the moment.

    One of the most approachable and enjoyable 2D fighters I’ve ever played, Phantom Breaker: Omnia has the potential to be great, but nullifies the effectiveness of its battle mechanics by trying to be too accessible, which ultimately restricts the best action to the multiplayer modes.

    Phantom Breaker: Omnia is a cacophonic mess, and if you’ve got local friends and want to play a janky anime fighter, then this is literally the best game of all time. The lack of basic quality-of-life additions found in modern fighting games, as well as aged and clashy sprite work almost feels lazy when every other addition improves the experience. It makes me question why the game wasn’t rebuilt entirely to start. The only way this game is remotely feasible online is through using Parsec on PC, as the game will not be getting rollback netcode. Despite all of this, I really enjoyed the game and had a total blast playing. Probably due in part to being able to play as some of my favorite fictional characters and I hope I’ll be able to play it with some friends down the line, as well as 100% the title. But I think I’m going to be one hell of an outlier with this experience.

    Phantom Breaker: Omnia is a perfectly serviceable fighter, but the story is dull and unexciting, and there's better out there.
