Akiba’s Beat Coming To PS4 and Vita On May 16

Akiba's Beat

XSEED Games got in touch to announce they’ll be releasing Akiba’s Beat on PlayStation 4 and PS Vita on May 16!

Check out the new trailer for the game below, and click after the break for some new information and screens on this release.


Akiba's Beat -1

A spiritual successor to AKIBA’S TRIP: Undead & Undressed, AKIBA’S BEAT is a modern-day satirical spin on the classic Japanese RPG formula. Set in a true-to-life recreation of Tokyo’s Akihabara district (“Akiba” for short), players will take control of a party of characters led by protagonist Asahi Tachibana as they seek to rid the town of anything out of sync with reality.

There are two sides to the gameplay: first, players will wander the streets and question the quirky Akihabara residents on a variety of subjects related to the mystery at hand, ultimately unlocking fantasy-themed dungeons known as “Delusionscapes” which are infested with monsters called “deluseons.” These deluseons are encountered on the map and fought in a party-based action battle system, putting players’ skills to the test and creating a uniquely challenging experience that seamlessly blends a real-life locale with the secret delusory world of its residents’ innermost desires.

If you’re thinking about getting a physical copy of the game, you should consider pre-ordering. Why? Because pre-order copies at participating retailers will include a pocket plushie of Pinkun.

We look forward to trying the game in a couple of months. If all goes according to plan we should have a review for you close to the game’s launch!
