Way Of The Samurai Staff Building Battle System For Akiba’s Trip

By Spencer . January 27, 2011 . 3:42pm


Akiba’s Trip, Acquire’s portable stroll through Akihabara… with day walking vampires, has an action combat system. While Acquire hasn’t said much about it, screenshots of the main character punching maids are out. The official site mentions the Way of the Samurai staff are helping polish the battle system so it has an exhilarating feeling.


Acquire did their best to replicate Akihabara in the PSP game. Here’s a look at how they did with the protagonist dressed as a cowboy.

    So the bad guys try to tear your clothes off or something? It looks like that guy is trying to pull off that girl’s shirt. Her shorts are already undone. I saw another screenshot somewhere else where it looked like a dude was pulling on a girl’s skirt that was wearing a maid outfit.

      Judging from the clip from the more recent article and the title (Akiba’s Trip/Akiba Strip) I’m pretty sure that’s how the “battle system” works. Strip vampires to expose them to sunlight.

      They must be wearing really heavy sunblock on their faces or something, though. Otherwise, it doesn’t make all that much sense.

    The main character punching maids? Shame on him. Maids need to be loved.

    Other than that, I’m looking forward to this game =P
