A 2D co-operative, side-scrolling beat ’em up, Overdrive includes four playable characters – Mikoto, Waka, Itsuki and Yuzuha – with Makise Kurisu of Steins;Gate available as a DLC character for $5.99.

  • Newly arranged music – Now leveled up by the PS4! Incredible arrangements with 8 FM synthesis tones and 1 ADPCM tone!

And here’s the key features of Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds:
