In addition to having actual Akihabara stores for players to visit, Akiba’s Trip 2 has giant billboards for video games like Disgaea 4 Return over video game retailer Softmap and an ad for the Neptunia anime DVD series above Comic Zin. Check out the huge Super Sonico billboard over Yodobashi Akiba and the nod to Taito music group Zuntata.

Just like the original Akiba’s Trip, Akiba’s Trip 2 has loading screens that represent Akihabara culture. There’s a screen with Super Potato, a video game retailer with a treasure trove of retro games, and Kaku-San-Sei Million Arthur, a popular free to play game from Square Enix.

    I guess in the world of Akiba’s Trip, extremely niche Japanese publishers have much bigger advertising budgets.

    I’m really looking forward to this one. Going to have to try to find a way to get it imported for my Vita.
