Wouldn’t hanging out with an idol be cool? How about fighting bloodsucking monsters with one? Akiba’s Trip 2 gives players a chance to partner with Rin, an idol from Akihabara that exploded in popularity. She also lent her image to promote a major pharmaceutical company that’s tied to the game’s story. She’s been investigating the bloodsuckers and gets in contact with the protagonist. Also, Rin has an awesome keyboard weapon.
Zenya Amou is one of the main antagonists who is trying to capture the hero. Zenya is a condescending character who says the otaku should get out of this town and is responsible for turning people into the vampire-like creatures. Players can defeat them by stripping off their clothes and exposing these transformed people to sunlight. Akiba’s Trip 2 has a new Group Strip technique where you can rapidly snap off the clothes from a number of characters back to back. When you get fired up after all pulling off a group strip a green light glows around you.
Akiba’s Trip 2 comes out on November 7 for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.
