Akiba's Trip 2

Akiba’s Trip 2 producer Junichiro Tamura wants to continue the Akiba’s Trip series, but the next game has to be more than just added content, he said.

“I want to continue the Akiba’s Trip series in the future, so I’ll do my best,” Tamura told Inside Games when asked about the possibility of an Akiba’s Trip 3 or an HD remake of the PSP original.

“This is all tentative right now, but if we were to make an Akiba’s Trip 3, I think it has to leapfrog the others in terms of progress compared to its predecessors. It can’t just be about having a greater volume of content than what came before it.

“When that time comes, I want to offer the astonishment and freshness players experienced in the first Akiba’s Trip, and have them say, ‘What a game!'”

Tamura also mentioned wanting to do an Akiba’s Trip anime to broaden the franchise’s awareness and mind share, but isn’t sure to what extent they can take the whole “undressing” thing.

Akiba’s Trip 2 is now available on PlayStation 4 in Japan and is coming to PlayStation 3 and PS Vita in North America this summer.

    This guy needs to watch more TV. There are far “worst” TV animes in this aspect. It all depends on the time slot you broadcast the show

      And the channel :P

  • Budgiecat

    yeaah no shit it would have to; considering it looks like a low budget PSP game as it is..

  • Elvick

    Open world yo!

  • Daniel Rossevelt

    I think an anime could be really interesting. Also i would definitely want a Akiba’s Trip 3

    There’s not all that much to play on the PS4 so I’ll get the PS4 version of Akiba’s Trip in a few days.

  • Hexodious

    I’d like a HD version of the first PSP game and bring it over here as a Vita game, even if it’s just digital.

    • Nonscpo

      Agree on everything you said minus the digital only release. As long as an HD of the original is release in physical format for both Vita and PS4 owners in the west, I could definetly see the franchise grow.
