Phantom Dust is a unique blend of third-person arena combat and collectable card game, in which both fast reflexes and clever thinking matter.

“First introduced in Japan, Phantom Dust quickly became a hit for its unique combination of fast-paced action, striking graphics and competitive multi-player capabilities via Xbox Live,” said Ken Gold, Majesco’s vice president of Marketing. “This offering of a highly entertaining product at an attractive price-point appeals to both hardcore gaming fans as well as the casual, mass-market audience.”

In Phantom Dust, gamers assume the role of the “gifted one” trying to unlock the events of the recent apocalypse, causing the near-destruction of the human race. Players emerge from underground to find that the surface is covered with mysterious particles called Phantom Dust, and is inhabited by creatures which embody people’s worst nightmares. Players utilize supernatural skills to defeat opponents, and regain lost memories.

Phantom Dust highlights include:

  • Gain over 300 skills to blast and damage opponents, steal their skills, and neutralize their psychic abilities;
  • Enable Live features to play in tournaments, check statistics on leader boards, trade, sell or ante skills and download new skills;

  • Earn points in Live battles and use them to buy new skills;
  • Use psychic-skills on surrounding environments to cause more harm to opponents;
    Players interact with other characters and their surroundings to discover more about their world, their skills and themselves;
  • Choose strategy based on environment, battle mode, personal style and your opponent’s abilities;
