Today Acquire released the first trailer of Akiba’s Trip: First Memory, known in the west as Akiba’s Trip: Hellbound and Debriefed.
The trailer provides a look at the gameplay and the characters, which may not be familiar to many considering that ten years have passed since the release of the original game in 2011 for PSP.
The Japanese release is coming on May 20 for PS4 and Nintendo Switch, while the western release is coming this year. For now, only PS4 and PC have been announced as the platforms for North America and Europe, but this doesn’t mean it won’t come for the Switch, as the announcement is quite old.
You can watch it below.
If you’re unfamiliar with the game, you can read the official description from Xseed below.
“Take a trip back to the origin of a series that will knock more than just your socks off! In Akiba’s Trip, players expose vampiric creatures called Shadow Souls to deadly sunlight by liberating them of their clothes. Now, a fully remastered version of the original “Strip Action RPG” is coming to the West for the first time. Following the success of Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed, which was released as Akiba’s Trip 2 in Japan and has sold over 500,000 copies worldwide, Akiba’s Trip: Hellbound & Debriefed completely rebuilds the first title in a modern engine, bringing back the beat-’em-up, strip-’em-down gameplay fans know and love while accurately rendering Akihabara, Japan’s geek paradise, from circa 2012 in glorious HD.
Developed by Acquire Corp. and published in North America by XSEED Games, Akiba’s Trip: Hellbound & Debriefed is in development with the launch date to be announced at a later time.”
