Shortly after Web site began listing the game with a "February 2005" representatives from Sammy confirmed the game had slipped from its Q4 2004 release window. Iron Phoenix joins a growing number of games bowing out of the crowded 2004 Holiday season. Most Q4 2004 dropouts offered no motives for their schedule change, but Sammy reps said there was a very specific reason their game was being put off until next year. "They need more time to make it fully compatible with Xbox Live 3.0," said one. A fighting game that exhibits both Asian and Western influences, Iron Phoenix will offer single-player and multiplayer modes. The former will follow a character on a quest to collect nine magical weapons forged from a fallen meteor. The latter will let up to 16 players engage in big brawls via Xbox Live.
