Publisher XSEED Games and developer Acquire have announced they’re bringing the original Akiba’s Trip westward.
The “strip action RPG” is launching for Windows PC and PlayStation 4, and is described as a “fully remastered” version of the game, completely rebuilt in a modern engine. A release date wasn’t announced.
Here’s a quick rundown on the game:
Take a trip back to the origin of a series that will knock more than just your socks off! In Akiba’s Trip, players expose vampiric creatures called Shadow Souls to deadly sunlight by liberating them of their clothes. Now, a fully remastered version of the original “Strip Action RPG” is coming to the West for the first time. Following the success of Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed, which was released as Akiba’s Trip 2 in Japan and has sold over 500,000 copies worldwide, Akiba’s Trip: Hellbound & Debriefed completely rebuilds the first title in a modern engine, bringing back the beat-’em-up, strip-’em-down gameplay fans know and love while accurately rendering Akihabara, Japan’s geek paradise, from circa 2012 in glorious HD.
