Akiba’s Trip Has… Upskirt Photography?

By Ishaan . February 21, 2011 . 10:18am

 

Akiba’s Trip, in case you haven’t been following it, is a PSP by Acquire game set in Akihabara, Tokyo’s “electric town,” known for being a haven for games and anime. Acquire’s version of Akihabara, however, is also a haven for vampires — not that you’d be able to tell from this trailer, though.

 

This new trailer should give you a feel for the livelier aspect of Akiba’s Trip, and what to expect from its setting (hint: upskirt maid photography). For more information, you can catch up with our coverage of the game.

    This gets better everytime I see something new on it. It’s like this game is made exclusively for me!

    The last part was……….o.o unexpected

  • SolidusSnake

    So is this like GTA but instead of shooting people you look at girls’ panties…? Count me in.

      Like Tommy said below, it isn’t necessarily you that will be doing the photography. You will pull peoples’ pants down though. :p We’ll talk about that sometime soon…

      • Apollonis

        Finally an excuse to bring it up, huh?

      • SolidusSnake

        I like where this is going. Who needs an M4 when you can resolve conflicts by getting people naked. The Japanese come up with some interesting concepts, that’s for sure.

    There better not be any gender discrimination in this game. The guy was shown taking pantie shots of girls and straight-up stripping a man. Give me girl stripping or give me death!

      You will be able to strip girls too. The vampires aren’t all guys.

    Wow…This game just got a whole of a lot more interesting for me :D

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Tommy-Lee/518924335 Tommy Lee

    Just to make things clear, the guy who was taking the upskirt shots was an NPC. The MC is standing to right side of the screen when they show him getting arrested.

      • Apollonis

        out-of-shape otakurun?

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Tommy-Lee/518924335 Tommy Lee

          Probably. They both get animated in the same matter.

          • Apollonis

            heheheh, nice observation =)

      • http://thrust-the-sky.deviantart.com/ WildArms

        haha, i dont think is that stereotypical xD, first time i see something like this xD, Cosplay surely put people out of shape

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Tommy-Lee/518924335 Tommy Lee

          I dunno… When I saw him running around in the video, it looked like he was trying to box and jog at the same time. Emphasis on trying, since bolding and italicizing is not enough to do so.

          • http://thrust-the-sky.deviantart.com/ WildArms

            From what ive seen of him (before this video) i was expecting a more Spike from Cowboy Bebop way of running xD he was like slim but kinda tall >_>, meh, that is the least of my worries anyway xD

    I think this has 0 chance to get translated,but one can dream,one can dream…

    this guy is actually Kazuma Kiryu in his younger days before joining the Tojo clan :D

  • PrinceHeir

    lol the maid’s getting startled XD

  • Dimentionalist

    YES! YES!

  • Xeahnort

    Why am i not surprised?. This game proves that “one more time” Japanese videogame industry is being infected by cheap pornography.

    In the end, Keiji Inafune was right after all.

    • PersonaBull

      “Cheap pornography” eh? If anything, the maid-loving pervert (who gets arrested and/or camera taken away) is a satire. You don’t see any of those “pantyshots” (I’m not sure how he even got any good pictures, as far away as he was).

      If you’re talking about the fact that you’re stripping vampires in Akiba, well, why are you so serious? It’s not like the creators are getting all “excited” over it. It’s obviously a joke and should be taken as such. I agree with most of Inafune’s opinions, but getting offended and dropping a name because of a silly game with generic graphics and a silly gimmick (which I wouldn’t mind trying out, for the record. though, I can’t say whether or not I’d pay for it at this point) as if it displays the majority of Japanese-made games is going a little far.

      • http://thrust-the-sky.deviantart.com/ WildArms

        And when internet was invented terms like “cheap pornography” no longer exist

        • SolidusSnake

          I thought “internet” and “cheap pornography” were synonyms.

    • http://thrust-the-sky.deviantart.com/ WildArms

      You were expecting a japanese game based on a japanese otaku culture “controlled” place not to have these kind of things?

      There is a big line between Video Japanese industry, and a game based on japanese’s culture (even otaku culture is now part of japan’s), it would had been weird for this not to have some “ecchi” moments

      If a game like for example final fantasy had something like this, then what you said would be more valid

    • JustaGenericUser

      But it’s okay in games like Gears of War: Alien Dating Edition and Tolkien Age 2: Electric Orcaloo because they’re not them oh so scary anime, huh?

      • SolidusSnake

        omg pwned. I wish I could like this comment more than once.

  • Barrit

    Haha, I’m sure this will have a very interesting story to go along with it!

  • Apache_Chief

    I wouldn’t have it any other way.

  • http://www.facebook.com/strawberry.kurosaki William Hsia

    so exploration would be in a kenka bancho/yakuza style eh? seeing as how i only been in shibuya last i went to japan this will make up for lost time

  • http://chronotwist.deviantart.com/ JustThisOne

    So… all he gets is a slap in the wrist?

    … I wanna go to Japan. D:

  • Kai2591

    I just realized the name can probably be read in two ways…Akiba’s Trip or Akiba Strip (due to stripping feature..) lol.

    anyway~ open world is interesting especially when its in Akihabara~

  • http://www.fanfiction.net/u/601368/ Ikari Engeru

    • http://thrust-the-sky.deviantart.com/ WildArms
