Breakers NTSC Variants Available To Pre-Order - We Have 3 Copies To Give Away!

A few weeks ago we broke the news that Breakers was coming to the Dreamcast, and followed up with a huge review and emulation analysis. Visco's obscure Neo-Geo fighter has now shipped in PAL colours courtesy of publisher JoshProd, but there's another opportunity coming for those who didn't manage to snag a copy through French retailer Rush On Game.

As of right now, you can pre-order the newly repackaged version of Breakers in an NTSC style jewel case from Play-Asia.com and it will come with a reversible manual with both NTSC-U and NTSC-J artwork on the front and back covers. The game is identical to the PAL-styled version which was offered initially, but without the big blue box and PAL branding and is priced at $39.99. Shipping will commence on 31st May 2017 for those who pre-order. Note that if you're based in the United States or Canada, you can't order from Play-Asia.com. Instead, VideoGamesNewYork has the rights for your part of the world, so head over here to get your order in.

Here's a sneak peek at the new covers:
Competition (*Now Closed*)
Finally, to celebrate the release of this new variant The Dreamcast Junkyard has teamed up with publisher JoshProd to offer three readers the chance to win a copy of the NTSC packaged version! All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is answer the following question:

Which developer created the original Breakers?

a) Capcom
b) Visco Games
c) Namco

This competition is now closed and winners have been notified by email.

I would think then, Play Asia wouldn't be able to ship 'Breakers' to a US or Canadian address. Either way, I'll wait and get the game through Video Games New York.

Yeah, the game is available to gamers in the US and Canada via VideoGamesNewYork - I've updated the article with a link now they've put the pre-order page live.

I preordered from Video Games New York. I'm guessing most of the price goes to licensing, but after shipping, it's a little pricey to me. We'll see.

Hiya, great article! I might have to look into this. Also i was hoping to ask you a few questions. What is it like writing articles for the DCJY? Do you get paid or is it something you do in your free time? How do you find out what your going to write?

It's a pain in the arse to be honest XD we write this stuff in our spare time, for free. There's a Patreon that covers the cost of the podcast hosting and any other bits and pieces we might need. Finding out what to write about? Just whatever pops into our heads or if it's a news thing just if we see it on a forum/online/if someone emails.
