We are happy to announce that we have launched our over-the-top action RPG title, AKIBA’S TRIP: Undead & Undressed, on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system.
Touted as XSEED Games’ largest voice-over project to date, AKIBA’S TRIP: Undead & Undressed boasts Dual Audio. Its English and Japanese voiceovers complement a narrative dripping with satire and nods to Japanese culture to create a bewitching modern-day supernatural “otaku” adventure set in a faithful recreation of Akihabara, a popular Japanese “alternative” tourist destination.
In AKIBA’S TRIP: Undead & Undressed, the player 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 the player comes in. Taking the role of a young man named Nanashi, who was transformed into one of the undead himself, the player must spot the Synthisters among the outwardly human men and women of Akiba 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 the player has gained enough stripping experience, he or she can claim each of the enemies’ unique clothing items for personal use.
Experience a geek-savvy, playfully sexy adventure with AKIBA’S TRIP: Undead & Undressed.
