The lead character in Akiba’s Trip 2 is just a regular Akihabara-loving geek. He gets caught up into a mess with the mysterious Magaimono organization and these demon corpse people. Their weakness is sunlight, which is why strip attacks, a move where you tear off an opponents clothes, is such an effective technique.
New for Akiba’s Trip 2 is you get to pick a partner character to explore Akihabara with you. Shizuku Tokikaze, the girl with purple pigtails, saves the protagonist when he is captured by the mysterious organization. She seems to be infused with marvelous power, but what kind of power she has is a mystery. Toshiko Sagisaka is a childhood friend of the protagonist, but she isn’t an otaku. She knows Akihabara well because she was part of the Akihabara Vigilante Corps two years ago.
Akiba’s Trip 2, like the first game, is part adventure and part beat ’em up. One of the new moves you have is the Unison Strip technique where you and your partner can strip an opponent. Akiba’s Trip 2 is slated for release on November 7 for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.
