XSEED Games are doing the impossible – they confirmed that Akiba’s Trip Undead & Undressed is coming to the Playstation 4 this holiday, alongside a now confirmed August 12th release on Playstation 3 and Playstation Vita.

Featured above, you can check out a brand new trailer for the game that shows off the various mechanics and options you’ll have in the game.

Here’s the full gameplay and story synopsis below, courtesy of XSEED:

Released as AKIBA’S TRIP 2 in Japan, the title received a Gold Award by Famitsu upon its release. The all new standalone story in AKIBA’S TRIP: Undead & Undressed takes players on an eclectic trip through Tokyo’s “Electric Town” electronics district in which they will battle vampire-like foes in over-the-top, highly stylized role-playing action. Dual Audio with English and Japanese voiceovers complement a narrative dripping with satire and nods to Japanese culture to create a bewitching modern day supernatural “otaku” adventure.

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.

Are you guys excited? What platform will you buy it on?

    Glad they finally gave us a release date, will just have to double check my preorder and all will be well. I’m severely disappointed that Xseed is making the bad decision of releasing the PS4 port in Q4 as the holiday season is when games get buried. They should have held of for a February release when they’d have the market to themselves, and when the fanboys start crying out over their perceived gaming drought. I’m buying the PS Vita port by the way ;)
