    Goddammit, XSEED! Now I have to buy this for the Vita and my PS4 that’s collection dust.

  • X_Bacon

    Dear diary,

    Today Xseed was based again.

    • NeptuniasBeard

      Where does “based” come from. Some kinda new age slang I’m not picking up on?

  • Brimfyre

    GAH!!!! Decisions decsions decisions……

    Better graphics or AR models?

    • NeptuniasBeard

      I doubt the graphics are gonna improve much since they both have the same cell shaded style. But I believe the PS4 versions will have more going on the screen at the same time

  • Rintarou

    I was debating Vita vs PS3 but I’ll buy for Vita now and PS4 later! :D

  • Bob Slim

    well that was fast didnt know it would be this year cool
    Still gonna get the vita 1

  • Michael Kelehan

    Very classy move to announce this before the PS3/Vita game’s release, so everyone can make their decisions accordingly.

  • Darkwing7

    After i platinum for vita ill platinum for ps4 xD can’t wait to see how much of a hell the trophies are

    • GamingGuy1802

      There are 5 separated trophies for this game. 8 if you count the localization versions of the game

  • KazukiNanbu

    vita, ps3 or ps4……Damn!! I don’t know which version to get

  • WickedKnightAlbel

    Day 1

  • DesmaX

    No 60fps, no buy

    • wyrdwad

      I… think it is 60fps, actually. I mean, it certainly looks like it…

      • DesmaX

        You still don’t know? You guys already licensed the game, coudn’t you get that information directly from them?

        • MaximDualBlade

          He isn’t all Xseed’s staff.

          • DesmaX

            He’s PR manager.

            His job is releasing information of their company to the public (You know, kinda about their games). You can’t ask any other of their staff for that.

          • MaximDualBlade

            I don’t know what Tom does. I only know that he doesn’t know everything about the company’s actions right at the moment, but the times I have asked him for info, he has given it to me

          • wyrdwad

            I’m… not PR manager, actually. I’m just a nerd who reads Siliconera a lot and replies far more often than I probably should. ;) My title at XSEED is “localization specialist.” Basically, I’m a translator and editor.

            And we haven’t asked Acquire because we’re fairly certain it *is* 60fps. It’s been advertised as such, and it *looks* like it’s running at 60fps when we’re playing the game — but none of us are videophiles, so it’s really hard to tell for certain.

          • DesmaX

            … Dammit, I feel stupid now.

            I’m sorry

          • wyrdwad

            Oh, no, don’t apologize! I’m flattered, honestly. ;)

          • DesmaX

            But I am sorry. I saw you talking so openly about your games and just assumed you’re PR. I didn’t even took at the title.

            But anyway, if you could get a confirmation, that would be great. Re-releases like The Last of Us and Tomb Raider (Even if not stable) makes sure to advertise them as 60fps. It’s a huge thing for those who can see the difference

          • wyrdwad

            We’ll make sure to find out with 100% certainty well before the game’s release, fear not!

          • s07195

            The Japanese PS3 version certainly doesn’t. >_>

          • darke

            Sure, but most games on the PS3 run at 720p/30fps if that. :(

  • thrak

    Looking forward to undressing guys

  • wyrdwad

    FYI, website (with tons of voice samples, both English and Japanese):

    http://akibastrip.com/

    And new trailer:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OYY2i0FwbKk

    • Chip

      Is this a sequel, or is this the first of it’s type? Either way, I’m psyched!

      • wyrdwad

        It was Akiba’s Trip 2 in Japan, but the first game never came out in English and this game is completely standalone, so we dropped the 2 and added a subtitle in its place.

    • NeptuniasBeard

      I lost it at “the only thing I ever hunt is tail”

      • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

        Yes, it was a response for the ages.

        • wyrdwad

          The response TO that response is even more priceless. ;)

          • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

            lol! I can’t wait. By the way, I see in the posts that you are a translator/editor for them. From what I have seen especially from this latest trailer, you have outdone yourself. Thank you so much.

    • Land of Green Pasture

      Shizuku’s voiced by Sachika Misawa in jp right? in this vid, the english voice doesn’t seems to fit her stature IMO…

      • wyrdwad

        Really? Her voice sounds almost exactly like the Japanese, to me. When we did voice recording, we directed the voice actress to basically mimic Ai Enma from the anime “Hell Girl,” since Shizuku’s Japanese voice sounds almost exactly like her, and the end result was probably the closest match of any character in the entire cast, at least IMHO.

        I think in context, you’ll find her voice fits really well. But if not… well, there’s always the dual voice option, but hopefully the other voices will more than make up for any that you feel aren’t quite up to par. ;)

    • Jimmy Bump

      Hey its you! I do have to say with this is nice catch because I find this game fun and its good to see that more people can play it and understand it and not have to learn another language although it helps if you are impatient.

  • James Reilly

    That is nice although I’m probably just gonna get the Vita one.

  • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

    This is why I love Xseed. Great localizations, uncensored and awesome communication. I mean they could have waited until after these games released in August to make an announcement to sell as many as possible first, but they tell us now. Yes, Xseed, you have my money and my gratitude. That’s the way to do business.

    • NeptuniasBeard

      You should buy all 3 versions, you know, REALLY show your gratitude! ^_~

      • GamingGuy1802

        And triple plat the game!

      • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

        I should also buy the imports. The Global economy also needs my help!

        • NeptuniasBeard

          You’re the man now, dog! Go for it?

        • Shiki

          Sounds good.
          But photos or I don’t believe it. #keepingsupportersaccountable

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/chibuki chibuki

    Very nice. Not this puts me in a dilemma. I really want to keep my Vita preorder since Amazon cut $5 off the price for me and I like having the convenience of handheld. How up to par is it compared to the PS4 version?

    • Brimfyre

      Looks like the PS4 has most of the DLC bundled with it, including swimsuits. So if you are worried about the extra $5, then you will probably spend that on DLC anyway.

      The Vita version has an AR mode where you can scope out the ladies on your desk or… whatever….

      I’m a sucker for AR so that is what’s making me lean towards Vita.

      • NeptuniasBeard

        You can only use the AR mode for the chicks? Major bummer -_-

      • wyrdwad

        Actually, all of the DLC (like, every last bit of it) is free, so the pre-bundled DLC in the PS4 version will only save you a bit of download hassle — not money.

        • Shippoyasha

          If Xseed gets more based, I’ll die of overdose! Thanks, Tom!

  • Atmey

    Glad to hear, Vita’s region switching is a pain. (Got EU account)

  • SupaPhly

    I wonder if NISA will handle the ps4 version in europe too

  • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

    And this is why I love you Xseed. Switching my pre-order to PS4 now =)

  • Black Heaven

    Sweeeeet, English.

    Do you create your own MC here? or do female players get stuck playing as a guy stripping … other guys. *_*

    • wyrdwad

      Your main character is a 17-year-old male college student named Nanashi, and that’s not alterable (well, except for the name!) — but you can change virtually everything about him after beating the game at least once, eventually unlocking options to give him the body and voice of any female character or NPC in the game if you so desire, or just leaving him as a dude but dressing him up in women’s clothes.

      He’ll still be regarded as male by the other characters, since his role in the story is very much that of a young male otaku in modern Japan, but in combat, he will look, sound and move like a woman.

  • NintendoPSXTheSecond

    Now I have a reason to wait :D

  • TheManWithPants

    This is fantastic news! I just got myself a PS4 last week, so that’s another game I can add to my list of games to buy for it.

  • Yan Zhao

    Welp, guess no PS3 version for me. Will start with Vita then go PS4 :3

  • Noire Yoshida

    As someone who imported the PS4 version, I’m staying far away from the PS3 and Vita versions. Not that they aren’t bad, but when comparing experiences, once I tried the PS4 version, I couldn’t go back to the imported PS3 version.

    • s07195

      Was it the loading time and lag that got to you? I’m almost finished with my fourth playthrough here.

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

    Well, this is good news. I’ll have to skip the PS3 version for this one then.

  • Crimson_Cloud

    Don’t have PS4 yet, so the PS3 version for me.

  • DarkLight

    Gonna have to skip the vita version then.

  • Serephitus

    Gonna have to skip vita version too. But don’t want to wait for 4 more months x_x

  • TheCynicalReaper

    Still buying PS3 and Vita versions. I don’t have a PS4.
    But honestly that streaming feature where the chat can influence the game at random is amazing and makes me want to get one

  • Kornelious

    Yes! It twas inevitable! :D

    And August 12th is the new official release date now, only a week delay so that’s fine by me….Although I might have to skip the PS3 version since the PS4 version is coming…..I dunno though…..Still freaking awesome! keep at it XSeed! :D

  • PreyMantis

    Yes, I can finally live the dream of stripping in Akiba.

  • Jose Coronado

    So i have made my decision i will be getting the Vita version 1st now, and PS4 later. Really hoping that the gamestop nearby has the game, if it doesn’t i’ll be so so so Sad!
