We enjoyed the zaniness of Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed and are looking forward to seeing what this upcoming title will have to offer.
With Halloween being just a few days away from the official release date, NISA could not have picked a better moment to release this horror based title short of the day itself. Yomawari: Night Alone has nothing to do with Halloween but as the days of October get shorter and the darkness sets in quicker there’s a chill in the air that makes everything perfect to chill you to the bone.
We are excited to announce that ACQUIRE’s highly-anticipated satirical JRPG headed to the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system, AKIBA’S BEAT, will receive dual audio voiceover support, including both English and Japanese language dialog options covering each of its nearly 22,000 spoken lines. Both voiceover languages will be present on-disc for the PS4™ system version, while “PSVita” system players will have English-language voiceovers available out of the box with the option to download Japanese-language voiceovers separately as a free DLC item.
In addition, we announced that the game’s “cute little uggo” mascot character, Pinkun, will phase into reality as a 3.5″ tall pocket plushie that will come with all pre-orders at participating retailers while supplies last.
A spiritual successor to Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed, AKIBA’S BEAT is a modern-day satirical spin on a classic Japanese RPG formula. Set in a true-to-life recreation of Tokyo’s Akihabara ward (“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.
