MCM Comic Con London is usually a time that sees a lot of anime announcements, as we did, but games while present are never at the forefront of the event in terms of reveals. PQube is looking to buck this trend and unveiled a couple of things around the event.
On Thursday 27th October, the day before MCM Comic Con, PQube announced that they will be releasing Akiba’s Beat for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in Europe in Q1 2017. Akiba’s Beat is considered a sequel to the two Akiba’s Trip games, Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed was released in Europe by NIS America, but is the first JRPG entry in the series.
Set in a hyper-stylised recreation of Akihabara, AKIBA’S BEAT plunges you into the heart of the mecca of Otaku culture, but all is not as it seems!
A haven for music fans, the go-to place for idol obsessives, a one stop shop for household electronics – over the years, Akihabara has meant many things to many people. Now, with dark forces at play, the memories, hopes and dreams of Akihabara’s colourful denizens are becoming a reality. Their delusions are taking physical form and with that, threatening the very fabric of time and reality!
Stuck in a never-ending time loop, it is up to you take on the freakish manifestations of Akihabara in an action RPG like no other! Battle to the Beat, timing your actions to the background music to deal the most damage.
Meet Electric Town’s colourful characters and form your best team to take on their collective imaginations.
