This looks pretty interesting (also brought over by Xseed) so I may pick it up in the summer.

All I know about this game is that it's Akihabira is built really closely to the real one, making it a much more affordable alternative to a plane ticket to Japan. Also, it involves vampires and stripping.

Anyways, wasn't really expecting this to get a localized (physical!) release, so I'm glad I won't need to import it (which I was considering doing later this month). Now, get to work on Shinovi Versus, Xseed!

I should invest some money into a vita when I get chance. Also there is people already upset that this is getting licensed/localized because of the sexual content.

Could you post a link to these people? I'm always curious as to how they argue their points.

Kinda off topic:

Why has nobody localized Time Travelers?

I didn't see this one coming. I'll definitely support this release, in the hope that XSEED and other companies will take the occasional flyer on some really niche games. Now, I just hope the PS3 can hang on for half as long as did the PS2 in terms of getting new releases.

It's separate tumblr blogs, there is no point right now. Just wait for the escapist, giant bomb or kotaku to post news about it.

So what is this game? A anime/otaku infused Yakuza game?

Basic premise is you are made into a vampire, saved by a bounty hunter (who is also a vampire). You then go hunting vampires around Akihabara. The way you beat them, is by beating them up so hard their clothes come off (though they still have undies) and are exposed to the sun. You can also use almost anything as a weapon, such as a motherboard.
