Akiba’s Beat Trailer Introduces Asahi Tachibana, Shows Off English Version


Akibas Beat protagonist

The English localization of Akiba’s Beat is prominently showcased in a new trailer published by XSEED. The video is the first in a series of character trailers that were previously released for the Japanese version.


In this first installment, players are introduced to Asahi Tachibana, an unlikely hero due to his lazy, NEET lifestyle. However, when faced with the life or death situation unfolding in Akiba, he gets fired up to fight.



Akiba’s Beat will release in Japan on October 13, 2016 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. The North American release will be later this winter.
