Re-shape reality with this brief Akiba’s Beat story teaser
XSEED Games today has released a new trailer for ACQUIRE’s upcoming JRPG AKIBA’S BEAT. This brief teaser showcases the game’s reality-bending premise while offering a look at the game’s Akihabara-inspired setting, party-based action battle system, and more.
You can check out the Akiba’s Beat teaser trailer below:
Akiba’s Beat is the spiritual successor to 2011’s PSP title Akiba’s Trip (read our review here), which later saw releases on both the Vita and PlayStation 4. The game is slated to release on the PS4 and Vita in North America on May 16, 2017. In the game, players control party of characters led by Asahi Tachibana as they fight to rid the town of anything out of sync with reality during a repeating Sunday from which none of them are able to break away.
If you think like this sounds like an especially Japanese take on Groundhog Day, you’re not alone. Hopefully the lack of Bill Murray won’t take away from our enjoyment of the game when it releases next month.
The game’s European publisher PQube released a trailer yesterday detailing the game’s English translation. In case you missed it, you can check it out here.
So, will you be picking up this over-the-top RPG when it releases next month? If so, let us know in the comments section.
