    About the Breakers Collection:

    The Breakers Collection includes two games: Breakers, a 2D fighting game released by Visco on December 17, 1996, for the Neo Geo and Arcades in Japan, as well as its sequel Breakers Revenge, released on July 3, 1998. On top of that, there will be brand-new content for the cult classics like an online mode, a training mode, an art gallery, and more.

    In terms of gameplay, fans can expect the same special action-based fights similar to other fighting games of that era. Each of the eight distinctive fighters in Breakers, as well as the two additional characters from the sequel, Breakers Revenge, can perform super moves by accumulating enough energy in their power gauge and performing the command. On top of that, genre-typical moves like dashing, back-stepping, or acrobatic combos complete the old-school fighting game experience you don’t want to miss!

    Check out the trailer to get a better feel for the action.

    Over 20 years after the original release, Breakers finally breaks out of obscurity. We are proud to present to you the upcoming physical versions of both Breakers and Breakers Revenge in one refined collection, courtesy of the magnificent remastering efforts by QUByte. Easy to learn but challenging to master – this is a fighting game gem for retro fans and newcomers of all ages. This also marks Strictly Limited Games’ first release of a 2D fighting game, and we could not be prouder that it is a title with such a storied history that aligns so well with our values and deserves a permanent, physical legacy!
