Akiba’s Trip Locked For May Release In Japan


Following the earthquake in Japan, Acquire delayed Akiba’s Trip from its original release date, but we now have a new one — the vampire-stripping game is scheduled for release on May 19th in Japan.


No U.S. publisher has announced plans to pick up Akiba’s Trip yet, but  we did get a chance to get in touch with the game’s producer last month, who gave us some insight into the thinking behind the game, including why the Way of the Samurai developer picked Akihabara as a setting.
