Akiba’s Beat release date announced for May

New trailer

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?
