AKIBA’S TRIP: Undead & Undressed

XSEED Games Confirms Launch Date & PS4™ Release for AKIBA’S TRIP: Undead & Undressed

We are happy to announce today that we will launch the over-the-top action RPG title, AKIBA’S TRIP: Undead & Undressed, on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system on August 12, 2014. We are also working on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system version of the game, which is scheduled to make its English-language debut later this holiday season. In addition, the official AKIBA’S TRIP: Undead & Undressed website launched today and can be found at: www.akibastrip.com.

ABOUT
In AKIBA’S TRIP: Undead & Undressed, players must repel a brooding malevolence that has fallen over Tokyo’s popular Akihabara (Akiba for short) electronics district. Akiba has been invaded by creatures known as “Synthisters” who prey on the anime- and game-obsessed patrons of Akihabara like vampires, but feast on their social energy and will to live rather than their blood. Only direct exposure to sunlight can stop this menace.

That’s where players come in. Taking the role of a young man named Nanashi who was transformed into one of the walking undead himself, players must identify which of the outwardly human men and women of Akiba are Synthisters with the help of a handy in-game smartphone app, then free them of their clothes, exposing them to sunlight and sending them to the netherworld. To achieve this, players will use everyday objects from baseball bats to comic books to motherboards as weapons, beating enemies into submission before attempting to literally grab the shirts off their backs. Once enough stripping experience has been gained, each of the enemies’ unique clothing items can be claimed by players for their personal use as well.
