There are so many Japanese fighting games that never saw a release outside of their home territory, but now one title gets to rewrite its history with a new entry set for the global stage.

Phantom Breaker: Omnia is coming to players around the world in 2021 as announced by publisher Rocket Panda Games along with developers Mages and GameLoop as a newly expanded fighter for a title that was originally supposed to come westward in 2012.

Omnia is described as a massive update to Phantom Breaker: Extra including all of the previous characters and content remixed and rebalanced for a new lease on life.

The new version will also feature a new fighting style to choose from in the Omnia style to go along with the Quick and Hard variations that allows players to change how their characters are approached and played during matches.

There will be 20 characters in total to choose from in the expansion including two brand new fighters and the previous guest characters in Steins;Gate's Kurisu Makise and Rimi Sakihata from Chaos;Head.

Along with Phantom Breaker's first western release comes a new English dub option for the game featuring many notable voice actors like Matt Mercer, Patrick Seitz, Caitlin Glass, Kira Buckland and Erica Lindbeck among other talented cast members.

Omnia will come packing the story modes from the first game and Extra, so there'll be plenty to dig into with the mysterious man known as Phantom pulling the strings.

Phantom Breaker first released in 2011 in Japan and was announced to be coming to North America in 2012 through now defunct publisher 7Sixty before being canceled for an unknown reason.

As for where you'll be able to pick it up when it arrives next year, Phantom Breaker: Omnia will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam digitally with physical editions being produced by Limited Run Games for the PS4 and Switch.

You can take a look at the announcement trailer for the revival of Phantom Breaker below along with a full match of gameplay via IGN.
