Yesterday Aaron Greenberg, Head of Xbox Games marketing at Microsoft, tweeted about a new, or should that be an ‘old’ game, that is set for release today. Phantom Dust is the 20005 action strategy game that was released for the original Xbox shortly before Microsoft ended production.

Phantom Dust is an action/strategy game with elements of collectable card games. Taking place in a post-apocalyptic Earth, the unnamed player/character must interact with the few human outposts that remain, all who have suffered a form of amnesia, to understand what has happened to the planet. Throughout the game, the player takes missions to collect artefacts of the past to help piece the past together, and where they face off in battles with other non-player characters. The player collects numerous skills by completing missions, which are used to assemble customised “arsenals” that they take into battle arenas against enemies. The game also included a multiplayer mode, allowing players to compete against each other using their arsenals.
