In Tokyo’s popular ”Electric Town” district, Akihabara, vampires called “Synthisters” walk among us. You must identify and dispose of them the only way you know how – by engaging them in hand-to-hand combat in order to strip them of their clothes so their bodies melt away in the sunlight.

About This Game

Akihabara. "Akiba," for short.

This suburban Tokyo ward's seen it all, from Japan's post-war reconstruction to the economic bubblegum crisis of the '80s. Always on the cutting edge of progress, with a little something to offer even the most fetishistic of appetites, it was almost inevitable that this singular technocracy of indulgence would give birth to a whole new kind of appetite altogether.

Enter, the “Synthisters” – vampires who prey upon the life energy of the town’s unsuspecting figurine-chasers, maid café connoisseurs and cosplayers. Those victimized by Synthisters take on the properties of their attackers while also withdrawing from society and becoming veritable shut-ins due to their newfound fatal weakness to sunlight.

AKIBA’S TRIP tells the story of one such unfortunate soul: a young man named Nanashi who was lured into a trap by the promise of rare character goods and transformed into one of the walking undead. He, however, was spared the worst of his fate by the bloody kiss of a mysterious Synthister hunter named Shizuku. Together with the rest of his companions in an organization unofficially dubbed the “Akiba Freedom Fighters,” Nanashi and Shizuku must uncover the truth behind the Synthister plague and save Akiba from being overrun by violent, antisocial energy vampires.

And of course, the best way to fight vampires is to strip them down to their skivvies so they melt in the noonday sun…

KEY FEATURES

Faithful Recreation of Japan’s Electronics Mecca
Like a virtual tour of Tokyo’s Akihabara district, all major outdoor locations from the town have been painfully 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 side quests, catalog ad flyers, launch apps to identify the undead and much, much more.

*Please note that the buildings and monuments depicted in the game AKIBA'S TRIP are based on the Akihabara town area from the fall of 2012 through the summer of 2013.*

CONFIRMED 100% cool & funny. akibahara is exactly as i remember it from the few times i've been there. even the stores are correctly branded. so much attention to detail. the english text translation is tite. i had the audio in japanese to maintain the original tone. little bit jet set radio in terms of style.

port is pretty trash, fighting is kinda ok, kind of terrible and frustrating. story is fun, dialogue is funny.

For the starters, this is a very niche game and not all will find it enjoyable. If anime stuff is not your thing you should probably leave.

Gameplay is somewhat repeative and difficulty is pretty artificial as you are outnumbered most of the time, however there are few different weapon types that offer bit more to the gameplay.

Most of the enjoyment comes from story, characters, jokes, puns and references to name a few.
I got most out of the brother puns of the little sister character. (brotaconist lmao)

Game offers some replayablity with 4 true endings, that need pretty much played from start to get the story paths right.
On the gamer difficulty it took me little bit less than 9 hours and i didn't do almost any side quests, so depending how and with what difficulty you will play game offers maybe 30-50 hours gameplay if you want to get all endings and achievements.

Localisation is done by XSEED so you know that it's great.

Game costs 27euros without a sale, is it worth it?
Unless you are super weeb maybe not, but in my opinion it's worth of picking up in a sale if you are even mildly intrested in anime stuff.

I got some good laughs and had dumb smile on my face for most of the time, for me it was pretty much worth the money.
Best played drunk and late at night.

Some good silly fun.
Who would've thought stripfighting was the best way to defeat vampires?
Yes, you strip down enemies to expose them to sunlight so they burn up. Brilliant. If you happen to fight a human instead, at least they'll survive the encounter, somewhat embarrassed.

It's got a bit of a short story, but there's multiple endings and a bunch of stuff to unlock. And you can just put the main questlines on hold to roam around a bit and do sidequests.
Story is conveyed through a bit of VN style dialogues, and missions usually consist of fighting.
You can collect outfits, accessories, flyers, even a few walking styles and some other stuff.

Recommended to play with gamepad.
Around the middle of the game, the street can get filled up with enemies to fight, some just jump in when they see you fighting someone, so combat's pretty much all over the place.
The camera locks near the exit of locations to highlight it. This can also happen mid combat, which can be a bit annoying.

All'n all, it's not the best of ports, but the game itself is quite amusing.

I expected this to be a mindless button masher with ecchi elements. Oh how I was wrong. This is actually a decent mix of action/rpg with VN (granted, with ecchi elements). Battle system isn't too deep, but not one-dimensional either. Story is pretty fun, with some branching and I think 5 possible endings. Graphics are nice enough to look at, CGI are gorgeous. Overall recommended to any anime fans who don't mind slightly erotic fanservice.

I recommend this game to people who like games mostly for story and having fun combat wise. Also people who like anime and waifus.

The story is actually very interesting. In the beginning you are an otaku who just wanted a job so you can get figures. But turns out the whole job thing was not as you thought it was…
That's all I can say about the beginning without it being too ‘spoiler-ie’
The story as you hear in the trailer is about a boy, girl, duo who run round the streets of akiba and rip people's clothes off. So as you might of guessed the story is about you and a girl ripping people's clothing off, why? Well you would have to play to find out.
And so you and the girl fight to clean the city of some tribal people. By ripping people's clothing off. The story opens up for the gameplay to make sense and it's actually really cool!
Some of the side quests are funny and fun too. <--- Thats rare in games
It's fun to rip off characters clothing.
Annnnnd with the story their are multiple endings!!!
A few of those endings brought tears to my eyes.

The gameplay is very good and has some nice unique mechanics. However, I don't want to say something bad but I have to be honest about it. The game some times can be VERY VERY annoying during combat. Like when an enemy rips off your cloths and you the characters stumble to somewhere else as in the animation. However your character when you go back to controlling it doesn't always go where the animation ended. And when you are knocked down some times the game doesn't give you much of a chance to get up or move just after you already got one piece of clothing striped off of you.
Despit this is still highly recommend the game to people who like anime and waifus.

The game also didn’t let me alt tab out or else it would crash and sometimes when I closed the game it black screened for a few seconds. (I use windows 10 btw)
Fighting is a little difficult to grasp at first. I do not recommend for a first time player that you go on ‘gamer’ go for ‘easy’ or ‘casual.’

Also if you do struggle with the game, like I did the first time and went straight to ‘Gamer’ Then go to another difficulty. However you cannot change difficulty mid game so I lost all my data and started again. But those who are in it more for the story just go to ‘easy.’ It's still fun even then.

Awesome game, the port is a bit iffy and it takes a bit to get the controls down, but after two playthroughs I can state that the game is replayable. Found myself having less challenge in my second run though, so it will become easier as you play (which is to be expected).

+Great Characters
+Good Story
+Customization
+Stripping
+Animu girls

-Ported
-Iffy controls
-Sometimes you lose control, unable to move yourself
-Starts to get boring after you do a lot of side quests (some repeat)

A great game in general

-there are minor bugs

Combat
-at first, may be difficult but will get used to it

Story
-great plot but the ending feels weak in my opinion

Replayability
- there are different endings to each girl (only finished shizuku), so you need to replay the game to get the endings

Recommend to buy, if you love RPG


















Also ♥♥♥♥ idol dis@ster (this is a side mission on the game)

If you like the writing in the demo you will like this game, but if you don't, then you won't. It's pretty much that simple. The demo only has 2 super tutorially fights, so don't compare that to the actual gameplay because in the full game I've had fights that have lasted +40 minutes because all the random npcs want a piece of my nep nep body pillow.

The 1st half of akiba's trip is pretty much the same because all it's there for is to give you the dating sim choices that define which path/girl you focus on in the 2nd half of the game. These paths are completely different (with certain playthroughs overlapping on certain key plot points) depending on what dating sim choices you picked in the 1st half (or if you jumped through all those sideside story hurdles to date your sister because japanese game (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻). For example: the final boss of my 1st/3rd playthroughs died about half way through my 2nd playthrough and the game kept going.

I very highly recommend picking up the demo and as always don't forget your god damn figurines.
