Breakers Collection will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam in 2021, developer QUByte Interactive announced.
Created in partnership with intellectual property holder VISCO Corporation, Breakers Collection will feature the 1996-released 2D fighting game Breakers and its 1998-released sequel Breakers Revenge with additional content including an online mode.
Here is an overview of the collection, via QUByte Interactive:
The controls of the game are similar to that of SNK’s earlier installments in their Fatal Fury series (particularly Fatal Fury 2, Special, and 3). The special actions are also similar to other fighting games from the same era, although the dashing and back-stepping techniques tend to differ between characters (some of them will roll on the floor for example). Additionally, the player can move while standing up after a fall. The game system emphasizes balance between characters by featuring an elaborate damage adjustment feature.
The player also can perform super moves by accumulating enough energy in their power gauge and performing the command (the power gauge can be filled up to three levels). To accumulate energy for the Power Gauge, the player must perform special actions such as taunting, dashing, back-stepping, rolling, etc. Like most fighting games, the player can cancel a regular move into a special move or special move into a super move, but the player can also connect one super move to another until their Power Gauge runs out, allowing the player to perform acrobatic combos. Because of its emphasis on damage adjustment, it is hard to spam the same attacks for great damage.
The matches follow the standard one-on-one best two-of-three format like most fighting games, but a match can last up to five rounds if there is no clear-cut winner in previous rounds (the game will end if both fighters lose the fifth round and no bonus points will be awarded if one wins the fifth round).
