Akiba’s Trip 2 Has Game Maker Crossovers With Nippon Ichi, Falcom, And More

akiba2-02One of the neat features in Akiba’s Trip and the PS3/Vita sequel Akiba’s Trip 2 is Acquire worked out arrangements with stores to put their likeness in the game. Akiba’s Trip 2 is going beyond adding places like Go! Go! Curry.

 

Dengeki PlayStation reports Akiba’s Trip 2 has crossovers with video game companies like Disgaea maker Nippon Ichi Software, Ys developer Falcom, Zero Escape creator Spike Chunsoft,and eroge game maker AliceSoft. The magazine also says games like Square Enix’s Kaku-San-Sei Million Arthur, Compile Heart’s Neptunia series, and the anime series Genshiken are in Akiba’s Trip 2. Sounds like Acquire’s game has as many crossovers as Ragnarok Odyssey Ace… and speaking of that game there are buses in virtual Akihabara with advertising for Game Arts’ hunting game.

 

Akiba’s Trip 2 comes out on November 7 in Japan.

    Well, there goes that tiny chance of a western release.

    • Chris Yuen

      don’t know why you would think that. There’s even a localization confirmation for the Chinese version back at the Sony’s TGS conference.

      • Audie Bakerson

        They confirmed it would be translated to Chinese?

        I thought lots of licenses involved would stop it because licensing agreements rarely cover foreign countries (and have to be renegotiated for foreign release) and often fall under a different owner outside their country of origin. Such issues have kept their fair share of games stuck in Japan (most famously SRW and JUS, but other too)

          check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wiRl-61135g. It’s mentioned there, as well as the localization of Dangan Ronpa. (Only Chinese version confirmed for now though)

          • Audie Bakerson

            Mind giving me a time? As much as I remember the translators being hilarious, I don’t exactly want to watch the whole thing again.

          • Chris Yuen

            11:52 for the Akiba’s Trip 2 teaser and Korean/Chinese announcement.

            Dangan Ronpa straight after that.

      I never really expected it to get released outside of Japan anyway. The lack of any localization of it’s predecessor (despite it’s succes) in combination with the additional licences in this game…. i can’t see it happen…

      And about that Chinese Version that is supposed to come out..For various reasons, i don’t think that will make any difference for a western release …

      Don’t get me wrong, i would love this game to be localized… but don’t get your hopes up.
