posted on by Karen Ressler
Game developer Acquire announced on Tuesday that it will release a new PlayStation 4 edition of its Akiba's Trip: Undead and Undressed (Akiba's Trip 2) game as a collaboration with the upcoming television anime adaptation. The new version, Akiba's Trip 2+A, will ship on January 5 in Japan with a download ticket for the anime's first episode. The game itself will add three costumes for the anime's characters, and Akiba's Trip anime posters will appear in game.
The Akiba's Trip games take place in a reproduction of Tokyo's Akihabara district, where the player must fight vampires by tearing off their clothes and exposing them to the sunlight.
The anime will premiere in January 2017 on Tokyo MX, BS Fuji, and AT-X, and is serving as the first project to commemorate Gonzo's 25th anniversary.
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 Akiba's Trip 2 sequel game 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.
Additionally, the Akiba's Trip Festa! PC browser and Android game is also slated to arrive at the end of November.
The Akiba's Beat successor game is the first action RPG in the franchise, and it will ship for the PS4 and PS Vita in Japan this winter after a delay. XSEED Games will release the game this winter in English on the same systems.
