posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website of Acquire's upcoming Akiba's Beat PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita game began streaming a concept video for the game on Thursday. The video previews the game's combat and new story, set in an alternate Akihabara where the characters constantly repeat the same Sunday. It also features the theme song "again" by the duo ClariS.
While the game is the successor to Acquire's Akiba's Trip game, it will be the series' first "action RPG." Kōta Takano is directing the game for release this fall.
The Akiba's Trip game take place in reproduction of Tokyo's Akihabara district, where the player must fight vampires by tearing off their clothes and exposing them to the sunlight.
Acquire released the original Akiba's Trip game for the PlayStation Portable in 2011, and an updated version, Akiba's Trip Plus, for PSP in 2012. Acquire released the sequel, Akiba's Trip 2 for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in 2013.
XSEED Games released Akiba's Trip 2 in North America as Akiba's Trip: Undead and Undressed on PS3 and PS VIta, and later on PlayStation 4 and PC. NIS America released the game in Europe.
