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 in a rich HD setting based on Japan’s famous geek paradise, Akihabara, circa 2011. KEY FEATURES: •Playful Reimagining of Japan’s Electronics Mecca Take a virtual tour of 2011’s Akihabara district recreated in painstaking detail, complete with accurate street layouts and shops based on real businesses operating at the time. •Fight Like a Nerd Wield an arsenal of replicas, collectibles, and other amusing objects as you humiliate vampires into submission, all while wearing a stylish array of customizable clothes and costumes. •Your Choices Matter Choose which faction to support in the fight for Akihabara and watch as your decisions affect the course of the story, culminating in one of several different endings. •Full Dual Audio Enjoy hours of voiced-over banter in your choice of English or the original Japanese.

Akiba's Trip: Hellbound & Debriefed Critic Reviews

If you just judge by the graphics, it feels very outdated. But the idea of it all is pretty decent as it focuses on the geographical location of ‘Akihabara’ and the stories based around it. Although the entire run is roughly around 8 hours, so the hype dies down quite sooner than you think. Play through multiple side missions and try to unlock all the various endings to stretch that play time longer. There are several factors that may not be fulfilling, but if you’ve never been to Akihabara before, while it’s not the best time to physically travel the world, this digital version of Akihabara may ease your urge and your otaku spirit can rest with this game... for now.
