This compilation includes the ’90s cult classic 2D fighting game Breakers (1996) and its sequel Breakers Revenge (1998), which come to Western audiences for the first time – with brand-new content such as a highly-requested training mode, an online versus mode and an art gallery.
You can expect “special action-based fights similar to other fighting games of that era,” with each of the eight fighters in Breakers – and the two additional characters in its sequel – able to perform super moves by accumulating enough energy in their power gauge to then execute the command. There are also other “genre-typical moves” like dashing, back-stepping and acrobatic combos.
The publisher has outlined the collection’s key features as below:
- A hidden gem from the golden age of arcade fighting games, remastered for modern consoles;
- Makes full use of the Neo Geo’s power to deliver beautiful pixel graphics;
