Set in an accurate but hyper-stylised recreation of Akihabara, the world-famous district of Tokyo where technology meets culture, AKIBA’S BEAT is an action RPG with real-time party based combat. As dark forces descend on the town, the people’s memories, hopes and dreams manifest in reality and warp Akihabara in strange ways, threatening the very fabric of space and time!

It is up to self-professed NEET, Asahi Tachibana, to lead a rag-tag group of chosen ones to take on the freakish manifestations of Akihabara in this action RPG. Meet Akiba’s colourful characters and form your best team to take on fantasies come to life!

AKIBA’S BEAT will be coming to Europe on PS4 and PSVita in spring 2017
