New Akiba’s Beat Trailer Tells Us Its Story



Xseed Games has now shared the latest trailer for their upcoming Akiba’s Beat, this time featuring the game’s story. You can check it out in the video below.


In addition to the video, the publisher has also launched the official English website for Akiba’s Beat where you can find even more information on the game’s story, characters, gameplay, and other features.


Here’s a look at the official description of the game from its official website:


NEET: Short for “Not in Employment, Education, or Training.”

Typically considered to be underskilled shut-ins who live by themselves in humble yet comfortable apartments, NEETs are known to mooch off their parents’ good will to play video games and watch anime all day instead of looking for work.

Asahi Tachibana is a textbook NEET, living a lazy, cozy life in Akihabara, the infamous Tokyo suburb renowned for its proliferation of anime and video game merchandise, maid cafes, pop idols, and all other forms of counterculture indulgence. To him, every day is Sunday, and every Sunday is a fun day.

Little does he know, however, that every day is about to become Sunday for real! Caught in a temporal loop, where the day restarts as soon as it ends, Asahi is one of only a chosen few whose memories don’t reset with it. He and his merry band of time-displaced losers must now scour Akihabara for signs of “delusions” – people’s innermost fantasies made manifest, changing the cityscape and the behavior of its citizens alike. It is the duty of this ragtag team (whether they like it or not) to infiltrate and destroy these delusions, restoring the natural order of Akiba in the vain hope that each loop may be their last.

During the course of this increasingly improbable quest, Asahi and his companions will unravel a deep, twisted mystery that blurs the line between the physical world and that of mankind’s innermost desires. Can this band of misfits restore normalcy (or what passes for normalcy) to Akihabara? Or will they succumb to the will of the enigmatic pink-caped man, who seems to be the key to everything…?


Akiba’s Beat will release for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on May 16th in North America and May 19th in Europe.
