XSEED Games, the independent-minded publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., today unveiled a brand new, full-length trailer for Akiba’s Beat, developer ACQUIRE’s highly-anticipated satirical JRPG headed to PS4 and PS Vita. The trailer comes as a follow-up to seven character-specific videos recently released via the XSEED Games YouTube channel, and highlights the game’s Akihabara-centric narrative and gameplay while showcasing the game’s uniquely challenging party-based action battle system.
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.
Akiba’s Beat is scheduled to release in North America in Q1 of 2017.
