A White Knight armor set from Ragnarok Odyssey Ace and M’s costume are available for the female characters. You’re in Akihabara so cosplaying is natural.

Akiba’s Trip 2 will be released for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. An update for the Vita version adds a number of new features like PS Vita TV support, an option to change your little sister’s name, and more customization options for players to unlock. After beating Akiba’s Trip 2 you can change the protagonist’s model, skin, and voice when you replay the game.

 

Another unlockable post-game feature is an option to make all of the people walking around Akihabara wear transparent clothes. Want everyone in town to be a giant? There’s an option to do that or change everyone in Akihabara to a kid. Finally, there is an option that gives you a hint on what choices make heroines favor you.

    Sounds like this has some nice replay value

    • RovCal

      ”tempting” is the word.

  • Dark Zerato

    Transparent clothes would make the game has less chance to be localized. Sigh.

    • Audie Bakerson

      Why would that do it over anything else in the game? In the first game it just shows the same underwear you see by ripping clothes off anyways.

  • Lemski07

    wheres dat see thru clothes, thats why im here O__O

  • s07195

    In other words, they didn’t change anything in this respect, since this has been here since game no. 1. >.>
    Betting the next news to be- you can change character models after beating the game!

    “change everyone in Akihabara into a kid”
    “game about stripping people”

      Yeah.. I was thinking that it was included to cater to those into lolicon or shotacon.

      • Shippoyasha

        Heh. I played the first game and everyone looked at least high school age to me. Reminds me of the To Aru series where the city is filled with school kids.

      • Göran Isacson

        Most likely. Still, there’s… somethign vaguely impressive about just how many otaku-bait factors they’re stuffing into this. Like, you have to try HARD to be this blatant.

        • http://jesse-dylan.livejournal.com Jesse_Dylan

          That’s a good point. It could end up being some kind of conflict of baits, though (that sounds bad ha). For instance, I myself am interested in Japanese culture, Akihabara, and the setting. Now, for the sake of argument, let’s say I have no interest in seeing naked children. (……) Perhaps this game I’m interested in could then become a turn off.

          I suppose they’re only thinking about the Japanese audience anyway, though, and as we all know, culture is a bit different there.

        • Shippoyasha

          The series isn’t quite as pandering as it seems though. If anything, it is a parody of otaku culture more than anything. It always has a light comedic feel to it.

    • http://jesse-dylan.livejournal.com Jesse_Dylan

      Maybe you can turn them all into kids and make them all wear transparent clothes too! DANGER DANGER.

      • ToshiChan

        lolicon dreams

      • Göran Isacson

        Ha ha oh man I think I’m just laughing so I won’t start crying.

        • http://jesse-dylan.livejournal.com Jesse_Dylan

          Ha It is a defense mechanism for sure :) Maybe these features alone will ensure this game is never translated from Japanese. :(

    • s07195

      It’s actually giant size, and kid size. As in having the models scaled down or up.

      • Göran Isacson

        And now I know! That does make it less creepy, so essentially it’s like Midgard: Hobbit Akihabara edition…

        … And now that I’ve actually written that, I kinda wanna see someone draw or make a game out of THAT concept.

        • s07195

          Midgets stripping clothes off each other, or giants doing the same. Pick your poison. XD

  • pokeslob

    my akiba’s trip should arrive today, I just can’t wait :D

    • http://jesse-dylan.livejournal.com Jesse_Dylan

      Enjoy it for me!! And report back on the curious details. I’m interested in the setting and gameplay, but I find myself also curious about the weirder stuff.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Haha can’t wait to get through this game. Gonna play Oneechanbara Z first. I’m sure thats the shorter one.

  • Skeptika Crediblus

    I want this game so bad my Vita hurts…

  • leingod

    You say wackier, I say awesom-er.

  • http://playstationallstars.wikia.com/wiki/PlayStation_All-Stars_Wiki Sackchief

    Why oh why can’t this get localized? This game sounds amazing. I’d probably drop every other game just to play it.

    • http://jesse-dylan.livejournal.com Jesse_Dylan

      Same. But I think the article above probably describes why it can’t be localized. :) And, I suppose, the main reason is that they think it won’t sell and the localization would be too much effort.

      Personally, I think they should do a low-budget localization, a low-budget digital release, and boom, we’d have our game.

  • Pywackett-Barchetta

    Welp, guess there’s going to be some happy macrophiles out there.
