Change equipment to change motions.

The latest Akiba’s Trip 2 character to be introduced is an enthusiastic Finnish student studying abroad in Japan. Famitsu.com has first details.

Katie Raikkonen, voiced by Haruka Yamazaki, is a Finnish girl who came study in Japan because she’s fond of anime and JRPGs. She works part-time as a maid in the game bar “Mogura,” which has become a hideout for the protagonist.

By changing the hero’s equipment in Akiba’s Trip 2, his walking and waiting motions will also change. In the screenshots, you’ll first see his normal waiting motion, arms folded. But by changing equipment, he’ll wait excitedly and skip while walking.

Also teased is a new “Famitsu Collaboration Mission” available in the game. When you clear it, the main character will get a pantomime motion.

Akiba’s Trip 2 is due out for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita in Japan on November 7.

    I’d love it if she actually had a Finnish accent.

    I also can’t help but think how hilarious the hero must look to passersby with those spontaneous moves. :p

    oh! She’s Caucasian because she’s blonde and has blue eyes!

    …er wait…

      Considering northern Europe has the highest rate of light haired and blue eyed people in the world it’s not really scandalous or anything. That’s over 80% for both light hair and blue eyes.

    Is Katie a name commonly seen in Finland? Not trying to nitpick, I’m genuinely curious.

      fem. of Kimi?

      No, but Kati is (which is the correct romanization for the name).
