Very First Trailer Released For Akiba’s Trip: The Animation

While many around the world are gearing up for the release of the PlayStation Vita’s Akiba’s Beat, there are still many of us that have yet to overcome the majesty of Akiba’s Trip; a beat ’em up video game heavily reliant on one’s ability to strip enemies down to their skin. The latest in the incredibly short series of games, Akiba’s Trip: Undead and Undressed, gained quite the cult following around the world which spurred a series of re-releases that have yet to end with the recent reveal that yet another is planned for a worldwide release to coincide with it’s upcoming Anime series. Simply titled “Akiba’s Trip: The Animation“, this new series will tell a story similar to that of both Akiba’s Trip and it’s sequel. Though many of the characters are reminiscent of those we’ve seen in the past, this is a new story that basically follows the same outline. Acquire, the game’s developer, have recently released the very first trailer for the upcoming Anime series that doesn’t show as much as we …

Akiba’s Trip: Undead And Undressed – PlayStation 4 Review

Just incase you havn’t had enough fun running through the streets of Tokyo’s Akihabara, striping random civilians and getting chased by the cops, NIS America have decided that it’s time for the game you played on both the PlayStation Vita and the PlayStation 3 to be released on the console with greater capabilities; the PlayStation 4. It was only last year that the West got its chance to taste the incredibly Japanese style of “Akiba’s Strip: Undead and Undressed” and even though it met with pretty average scores the world over, it has still somehow remained such a lovable and well-enjoyed game. At least, people like it enough for the developers over at Acquire to organise for the game to receive an updated port for a “next gen” console. In fact, there’s already word that the same game will, once again, be ported onto another console! This time the Nintendo 3DS. What gameplay mechanics will be added to that version I have no idea, but I’m not here to talk about the game that hasn’t …

Akiba’s Trip: Undead and Undressed – Now Available Across Australia and New Zealand

You’re not quite the man you used to be. Lured into a strange, underground, stronghold by promises of rare collectible items, you (the main character) find yourself in quite an odd but ultimately exciting situation. Transformed by the vampire-like race of humanoid creatures called Synthisters, you’re no longer the human you and your friends once thought you were. No, not at all. Instead, you’re now a true Freedom Fighter who must take on an army of pure darkness who’re threatening to envelop Japan’s ‘electirc town’…Akihabara. Much anticipated by the hardcore Otakus out there, ‘Akiba’s Trip: Undead and Undressed’ is a new action/RPG by video game developers Acquire that boasts both ‘epicness’ and hilarity. Why am I telling you this exactly? Well, because it is today that the game has been made available across Australia and New Zealand but only in its physical form, those of you wanting a digital copy will have to wait another week. Yes it is true; ‘Akiba’s Trip: Undead and Undressed’ for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita has finally made …

Akiba’s Trip: Undead And Undressed – Review

A young man and a beautiful girl speed through the busy streets of Akihabara. The duo duck and dodge in and out of back alleys as the people they pass by holler words of encouragement. They’re being chased. Hunted, but not for long. They find the perfect battlefield: Somewhere not as populated as the main streets. Somewhere they can let loose. Somewhere they can fight without holding back. Somewhere they can strip to their hearts content. They call themselves the Akiba Freedom Fighters and the ones they battle, they’re an army of superhuman beings called Synthisters that have neatly woven themselves throughout mainstream Akihabara society and they need to be taken down. Now. In ‘Akiba’s Trip: Undead and Undressed’ you play as, well…you. You’re the main character and, after applying for a dodgy-sounding job, you wake up to find that you’re no longer the same person you once were. Attacked by the people who imprisoned you, you’re saved by a young girl who seems to know of your situation. She saves you and explains that …
