NIS America to release Akihabara-set adventure game in October.

Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed

NIS America is bringing Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed to PlayStation 3 and PS Vita in Europe on October 10, the publisher announced.

The game is already confirmed for release via publisher XSEED Games this summer in North America. While an official date has not been announced, retailer listings suggest an August 7 release.

Neither XSEED Games or NIS America have announced the PlayStation 4 version for localization.

Find a story summary and list of features below.


Akiba’s TRip: Undead & Undressed is an open-world action RPG in which players undertake numerous missions in a virtual recreation of Akihabara, Tokyo’s popular ”Electric Town” district. The player’s goal is to identify vampires called “Synthisters” with the help of an in-game smartphone app, then engage them in battle to strip their clothes off so their bodies are fully exposed to sunlight. Boasting a unique combat system in which everyday objects become weapons, multiple story routes, a varied cast of characters based on common anime and video game tropes and a narrative dripping with social satire and subtle nods to Japanese pop culture, Akiba’s Trip is a present-day supernatural adventure for the gamer in all of us.

Key Features

  • Faithful Recreation of Japan’s Electronics Mecca – Like a virtual tour of Tokyo’s Akihabara ward, all major outdoor locations from the town have been painstakingly recreated, with over 130 real-life shops accurately represented.
  • Unique and Customizable Brawler-Style Combat – Anything can be a weapon, from baseball bats to comics to motherboards, and individual clothing items may be targeted, stripped, and added to the player’s own inventory.
  • Satirical Story with Divergent Paths and Multiple Endings – Playing off common anime and video game tropes for social satire, the player’s choices determine how the story progresses, leading to one of many unique endings.
  • Modern Day Setting Enhances Gameplay Options and Adds Pop Culture Feel – The in-game smartphone is used to check email, read comments on “Pitter,” take sidequests, catalog ad flyers, launch apps to identify the undead, and much, much more.

    I thought they already confirmed a version for europe this game.

      Nah, I was hoping for it, though!

  • Martian Wong

    I want to ask something, is Akiba’s Trip Undead and undressed Akiba’s Trip 1 or Akiba’s Trip 2?

      • Martian Wong

        Then we never get to experience the original game in English?

        • Mika Moreno

          Yes. But i don’t think there’s a story between the two.

  • Shippoyasha

    Kind of sad people have to be reminded it’s satire and comedic in nature. The spoon feeding never ends these days.

    The european version of a japanese game coming out when I’ll be in japan. Damn you NIS.

    • http://www.santashi.com/ Santashi

      That’s true for me too, but I’ll probably buy it digitally.

      • http://www.facebook.com/ruwahart Ruwah

        I might get it too, for vita… I wanted the ps3 version but I won’t have the console with me :(

        • http://www.santashi.com/ Santashi

          Yeah, I’ll have to get it for the Vita, too, but I actually prefer playing on the Vita so I don’t mind. :) You can play it while travelling, too! Are you coming to Japan on holiday?

  • Zechs

    But I wanted to get this for PS4. :S

    • Elvick

      Then wait and hope it does well enough for them to justify the PS4 version.

      Where do you work?

        The Fujisoft building.

        Edit: or slightly to the north-west of that screenshot.

  • Wolf Star

    The North Amercian ver says it’s coming out August 5,2014 not 7th

  • Akari Akaza

    What would we do without you XSEED and NISA……^_^ Also Atlus, Aksys and others.

    • Wolf Star

      We wouldn’t have these amazing RPG games :3 I can’t wait x3 day 1 purchase for me ^_^

    • NeptuniasBeard

      I wonder how long before your comment gets drowned out and lost Akari.

      (sorry, been watching Yuri Yuri for the past couple days, couldn’t resist)

  • Kattaro

    I probably going to get American version instead of Europe, I don’t want to wait till October.

  • artemisthemp

    Guess that means EU will see a psychical release of the Vita version :)

  • Daverost

    It’s upsetting that neither has announced PS4 yet. I cancelled my PS3 pre-order a while back because I ordered it before the PS4 version was announced and I got tired of the PS4 version being waved in my face by Japan. Either we’ll get the PS4 version later or I’ll buy the PS3 version when it’s cheaper. I won’t pay full price for PS3 with potential PS4 down the road. Made that mistake too many times already.

  • Neppygear

    Ahhhhh! Nisa deliver again.

  • Tom Bombad

    Can’t wait to see how NISA butchers this game.

    • Elvick

      They’re piggy backing off Xseed’s work. So, they probably won’t be changing anything.

      • Tom Bombad

        Thank god.
