Today Acquire and Xseed Games released news and assets of Akiba’s Trip: First Memory, known in the west as Akiba’s Trip: Hellbound and Debriefed.
First of all, we learn that the game will come west this summer for PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
This confirms the western launch on Nintendo’s console, that until now was announced only for Japan.
A “10th Anniversary Edition” will come for PS4 and Switch including an art book and a soundtrack in two disks. It’ll be priced at $49.99, while the standard edition will cost $39.99. You can see what it looks like at the bottom of the post alongside a features list for the game.
