Akiba’s Trip: Hellbound & Debriefed Bares All this Summer

Limited Edition also confirmed



Things are finally starting to heat up with the beginning of summer only a month away, and some of you out there might be feeling a little stuffy in your cold-weather wear. Fortunately, XSEED Games has announced that the chance for players to bear it all (and make others do the same) will soon be available, as Akiba’s Trip: Hellbound & Debriefed will be here just in time for the hottest season of the year.

Originally released as Akiba’s Trip for the PlayStation Portable, Akiba’s Trip: Hellbound & Debriefed will mark the first time that players outside of Japan will be able to experience the Akiba game that started it all as they take on the role of Nanashi—a young Otaku—and attempt to save Akihabara from the evil lurking beneath its nerdy streets. Players will also be able to enjoy exploring an accurately model Akihabara circa 2011 and all of its wonders… so long as they can manage to stay alive.

XSEED Games has also announced digital deluxe and 10th Anniversary Editions of Hellbound & Debriefed, the contents of which are described below.

The ’10th Anniversary Edition’ includes:

  • Retail edition of the game
  • Custom box with exclusive art
  • Softcover artbook with over 96 pages of illustrations, commemorative short story, and concept
  • artwork from the AKIBA’S TRIP series
  • Original Soundtrack of 47 songs on 2 CDs


The digital deluxe edition for PS4™ system includes:

  • AKIBA’S TRIP: Hellbound & Debriefed game
  • 47-track digital soundtrack
  • Exclusive PS4™ system theme
  • Set of 10 avatars


The digital deluxe edition for Steam includes:

  • AKIBA’S TRIP: Hellbound & Debriefed game
  • 47-track digital soundtrack
  • Digital version of the 96-page artbook


Akiba's Trip: Hellbound & Debriefed 10th Anniversary Edition


Akiba’s Trip: Hellbound & Debriefed is slated to release on June 20 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC, and is now available for pre-order. Will you be participating in this summer strip-fest of justice for yourself? Let us know in the comments below!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
