The Nintendo Switch is slowly but surely building a library of fighting game and fighting game-related titles. The latest of these is 5pb’s fighting game and beat ’em up hybrid Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Overdrive.

Originally released for PlayStation 4 back in July of 2015, Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Overdrive, co-developed by MAGES., is the latest update to Phantom Breakers‘s spin-off “Battle Grounds” series. The game uses a multi-plane system (first pioneered by Treasure for Yu Yu Hakusho – Makyou Toitsusen  and Guardian Heroes) to allow for up to four players to fight against each other, or together against waves of foes in beat ’em up fashion, while still retaining fighting game-style controls.

Check out the trailer for Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Overdrive for Nintendo Switch below.
