Firstly announced as a Neo-Geo game called "Tenrin no Syo - Crystal Legacy" in the premiere issue of Game Hisshou Guide published by Byakuya Shobo in 1993, while the first issue of Game Center Tenkoku published by Tokuma Shoten during the same year revealed the first screenshot of the game.

An issue of Geibunsha's Super Gamers magazine published a strategy guide for this prototype, which differs from the released version by having only a single-level special move gauge, different commands and move names for some of the characters, and having the same Super Move command (ABCD simultaneously) for all the characters.

An advanced prototype version called 'Tenrin no Syo Chicago' would underwent location testing on June 1994 at the Famil game center near Shiinamachi Station and was shown at the AM Show during the same year.

Two years later, in 1996, the game was finally released as "Breaker's".
