When you strip away its saucy art style, Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed is essentially a brawler set in Tokyo’s electronic district, Akihabara. There’s a little more to it than that, though, as your objective is to expose evil entities masquerading as everyday people – and relieve them of their clothes. While that would ordinarily see you serving a spell in a grotty slammer for sexual assault, your actions are justified here, as the only way to see off the vampirish Synthisters is to burn their bare skin with direct sunlight. Are you keeping up?
Alright, it’s all a little bit odd, but we reckon that there’s been a distinct lack of ‘out there’ adventures on the PlayStation 3 and Vita, so we’re really looking forward to this. The title’s due out in August in North America, where XSEED will be publishing it for the aforementioned formats. NIS America will pick up deployment duties in Europe, with the release due out on 10th October in the Old World – the same week as Alien: Isolation and Dragon Age: Inquisition. It’s bad timing no doubt, but don’t let that put you off this bonkers bare all affair.
