posted on by Jennifer Sherman
XSEED Games began streaming an E3 trailer for the Akiba's Trip: Hellbound & Debriefed game for PlayStation 4 and PC on Wednesday. The video reveals that the company will release the game in the West this winter.
The game is currently in development, and it will be a remaster of the Akiba's Trip Plus "Strip Action RPG" for PlayStation Portable. 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.
Acquire released the original Akiba's Trip game for PSP 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 PS4 and PC. NIS America released the game in Europe.
The Akiba's Beat successor game is the first action RPG in the franchise, and it shipped in Japan for PS4 in December 2016 and for PS Vita in March 2017 after delays. XSEED Games released the game in North America in May 2017, and PQube released the game in Europe the same month.
The Akiba's Trip Festa! PC browser and Android game launched in November 2016.
