5pb have announced that Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds will launch for PlayStation Vita in North America and Europe via PlayStation Network on July 29th. The side-scrolling beat ‘em up will also be available in South Korea on August 1st.
Masaki Sakari states in the blog that this is 5pb’s first experience with a worldwide release for the PS Vita, and that experience has been a hard one. Every branch of Sony Computer Entertainment has different pre-release rules that would conflict with one another. In addition, SCE was generally not open when negotiations were made to bend the rules to fit their needs, SCE Europe in particular.
Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds launched for PS Vita in Japan on March 13th.
