If you were starting to wonder when the successor to the Akiba’s Trip games was going to release in west, the answer is finally here: May 16 in America and May 19 in Europe, 2017. The ESRB has rated it T for teen while it is PEGI 12 in Europe.
Akiba’s Beat does not appear to be as well received as Akiba’s Trip: Undead and Undressed, but what I’ve played of it seems decent enough for a budget title. Anime is anime is anime, but the warm color palette resonates with me as well.
Releasing more than a month after Persona 5 is wise, but when RPGs are such long games (especially Persona) is that enough of a time cushion?
