Visit An Animated Akihabara In Akiba’s Trip 2

By Spencer . October 2, 2013 . 1:24am

Similar to how Rockstar carefully recreated SoCal for Grand Theft Auto V, Acquire recreated Akihabara for Akiba’s Trip 2. The game has actual stores from Tokyo’s electric town to visit and when Akiba’s Trip 2 couldn’t get a brand they spoofed it. Did you notice "Softband," "codomo," and "aa?" Those are riffs off cell phone providers Softbank, DoCoMo, and KDDI au.

 

The main difference is you have to clean up the streets of Akihabara and fight blood sucking creatures. Their weakness is sunlight, which (kind of) explains all of the clothes stripping action. Players have new attacks in the game like the Unison Strip which you can do with a costume character. Just like Akiba’s Trip you can dress up in costumes and your little sister will enhance the weapons and clothes you find.

 

Akiba’s Trip 2 comes out for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita on November 7.

    Forgive me for this, but Codomo? Is that like a loli hotline service? XD

    DoCoMo has nothing on that…

    Ok, enough with the jokes… I’m calm.

    Sorry, I couldn’t resist. :P

      At first, I read “Codomo” as “Condomo”…

    • Romancer Ecclesia

      DoCoMo happens to loosely translates to “anywhere too/also (available?)” which is probably is a pun to its wide coverage and reception. Just a thought.

      It reminds me of Dokodemo hotline.

    I’m getting the PS3 version. Will double-dip on English release but I’m not holding my breath.

      Shame all these uniquely Japanese games never make it over. You’d think they would see a demand for something different and unique in the west.

        If Akiba’s Trip 2 makes it here before Yakuza 5…. that would be messed up.

        • TheExile285

          We are never getting Yakuza 5. Let it go
