Back in 2013, the second entry in the Akiba’s Trip series, Undead and Undressed proved to be a moderate success. The long awaited sequel is the final stages of development under the name of Akiba’s Beat, and this time around, there is a much greater focus on RPG elements rather than the free roaming adventure aspects that Undead and Undressed implemented. The storyline of this new entry focuses on Asahi Tachibana, a young college dropout who gets caught in a time loop with a group of strangers, and must search for a way to break free from this strange phenomenon by travelling to a parallel world filled with mysterious monsters.
Akiba’s Beat will be available on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 for the estimated retail price of £39.99. If you are interesting in seeing more about the game, be sure to visit the official website, and watch the initial English language trailer provided below.
