PQube To Release AKIBA’S BEAT within Europe onto PS4 & PS Vita Next Year


A day before the MCM London Comic Con PQube announced that it had acquried to the European distribution rights to AKIBA’S BEAT, a sequel of sorts to the previously released Akiba’s Trip: Undead and Undressed, and that they would be releasing it onto the PS4 and PS Vita early next year.

Fans of the game may recall that XSEED Games had licensed the title earlier in the year for an american release; so it goes without saying that XSEED Games will work on the localisation and distribution of the game in America while PQube will handle it’s UK (and European) release. Fans who attended the MCM London Comic Con were also able to see the game demoned on stage with PQube team members openly discussing the game and it’s expected gameplay content.

Synopsis: Set in a hyper-stylised recreation of Akihabara, AKIBA’S BEAT plunges you into the heart of the mecca of Otaku culture, but all is not as it seems!

A haven for music fans, the go-to place for idol obsessives, a one stop shop for household electronics – over the years, Akihabara has meant many things to many people. Now, with dark forces at play, the memories, hopes and dreams of Akihabara’s colourful denizens are becoming a reality. Their delusions are taking physical form and with that, threatening the very fabric of time and reality!

Stuck in a never-ending time loop, it is up to you take on the freakish manifestations of Akihabara in an action RPG like no other! Battle to the Beat, timing your actions to the background music to deal the most damage.

Meet Electric Town’s colourful characters and form your best team to take on their collective imaginations.

PQube will release more details surrounding the release of AKIBA’S BEAT in the near future; but for the time being it will be released on the PS4 and PS Vita early next year.
