Product Details:

Akiba's Beat is a modern-day satirical spin on a classic Japanese RPG formula. Set in a true-to-life recreation of Tokyo's Akihabara ward ("Akiba" for short), players will take control of a party of characters led by protagonist Asahi Tachibana as they seek to rid the town of anything out of sync with reality. There are two sides to the gameplay: first, players will wander the streets and question the quirky Akihabara residents on a variety of subjects related to the mystery at hand, ultimately unlocking fantasy-themed dungeons known as "Delusionscapes" which are infested with monsters called "deluseons." These deluseons are encountered on the map and fought in a party-based action battle system, putting players' skills to the test and creating a uniquely challenging experience that seamlessly blends a real-life locale with the secret delusory world of its residents' true desires.

Real-Time Action RPG Combat
Touch enemies on the map to be transported into a party-based real-time combat scene where skill and reflexes alike are put to the test.

Real-Life Setting with a Fantastical Spin
Explore a faithful recreation of Tokyo's Akihabara ward, interacting with quirky locals and enjoying a taste of Japan's otaku mecca before entering surreal "Delusionscapes."

Modern-Day Mystery with a Touch of Satire
Question uniquely caricatured persons of interest in hopes of finding the source of Akihabara's many changes - before it's too late!

    Rated out of 5 by from Good story, but very disappointing I played Akiba's Strip A LOT! So when this was announced I got excited! Then I got to play it. The story was ok, but the rest of the game feels so bad. This Akiba is EMPTY compared to the one in Akiba's Strip. I loved all how colorful everything was around you, now everything is plain and boring. NPCs are color silhouettes instead of actual NPCs walking around. The combat is a joke, hated it. I really don't recommend this until it's like 5 dollars. This game feels like a nutter prequel than a good sequel...

    Rated out of 5 by from Back to Akiba? I have been playing Akiba's trip undead and undressed and when I saw this i knew that I had to get this I saw a clip of this on youtube and i thought that the game would be fun it seem that there is a creature that helps you along the way and that all members of your party (that was in the video) were all wearing headphones and that all party members would have a different song that they would battle with when they used their skills like with Akiba's trip undead and undressed it seems that there is roaming in different parts of Tokyo and the map that was in Akiba's trip undead and undressed looks exactly the same as in this game I can't wait for this game i am going to pre-order this for sure on tuesday!!!
