Akiba’s Beat is at your service
Satirical JRPG Akiba’s Beat has already shown itself to be filled with puns, tropes, and clichés, and today’s newly released Maid Cast trailer is piling on even more of that otaku culture that we’ve come to expect.
When Akiba begins to turn upside down and dreams and reality are one in the same, maids will be there to lend a helping had. As players explore Akihabara, maids can inform players of nearby treasure, enemies and Delusionscapes, and sometimes even help out a little in battle. Talk about customer service! They won’t join you right away, however. It will be up to players to locate potential maid allies and convince them to join. So far, three maids have been confirmed:
- Moé Suzumori – played by Alexis Tipton
- Yoshino Saionji – played by Lauren Landa
- Kanata Saotome – played by Karen Strassman
Akiba’s a pretty big place though, so you can expect to find even more helper maids as you explore. Maybe. Probably.
Akiba’s Beat is slated for release on May 16 in North America and May 19 in Europe, on both the PlayStation 4 and Vita. Will you be living the NEET lifestyle yourself? Let us know in the comments below!
