    One of the original Xbox's classic titles is getting the HD-remaster treatment and it's coming to PC and Xbox One all for free and no later than today!

    Announced during E3 2016 for a 2017 release, the game will finally be available to download today, May 16th.

    According to Polygon’s interview with Adam Isgreen, the producer, there will be optional paid DLCs:

    “There’s a free DLC download you can do the minute you start the game that gives you a whole bunch of skills and an arsenal case so you can jump right into multiplayer with a nice assortment of cards that you can build decks from. We’ve also got a whole bunch of accelerants that are in the game on the multiplayer side, so if you want all of the skills immediately, for a couple bucks, you can get all of the skills.

    We haven’t changed anything about the way that the original game worked; we’ve just added this as a convenience thing.
    So if people want to grind and they want to play exactly like they did when the original game came out, that is all in place. Everything about how the game works and functions is there. We really wanted to allow people to jump into multiplayer and play immediately."

    For those unfamiliar with the game, it is an arena battler built for four players, where players build their skills using decks of cards. It was initially developed and released by Microsoft Japan and arrived to the west near the end of the original Xbox's lifetime. In the video below, Isgreen gives you an intro to the game:


    We'll update the post with the link to download the game once the devs wake up it's available.

    UPDATE:
    The download link is now live! You can check it below. Enjoy!

    It's actually a really good game. The music and atmosphere was great. It was an underrated gem on Xbox.

    Didn't even know about this game.
    Looks like fun.
    Makes me remember of Power Stone, perhaps due to the graphics level./s

    Fond memories of playing this over Xlink Kai on the OG Xbox. Of course this version has been adapted to include microtransactions?

    You've made a typo in the title. It's Phantom, not "Phatom".

    So I need to use the Windows Store to get this one? Ugh! Until there's an easier way to add Windows Store games to Steam I've been avoiding them.

    Finally? Let me check again.
    Before I was trying to get this on the xbox store, but only a free dlc was available instead of the game.

    PS: Yey, finally showed up for me. So, this supports crossdevice multiplayer? nice.

    Same happened to me a few minutes ago. If you still can't find the game itself, click on that DLC and it'll have a link to the main game.

    So is this coming to the Windows store? If so, hard pass. If Steam, of course I'll take it.

    It's a free game that doesn't require an additional download (since you already have the Store) if you're like 50%+ of Steam's userbase and have Windows 10. It's really no one's loss but your own. You'll have to find some other games to add to your Steam games list that you'll never play.
