Pre-order Akiba’s Beat in Europe, get a neat gift

Pin cushion?

You may not be ripping clothes off of demons, but Akiba’s Beat still looks like one of the better role-playing experiences in that mid/low-development budget range. Whereas many games, including Akiba’s Trip, just give you a soundtrack or keychain for pre-ordering, European buyers will receive a “Pinkun Plushie.”

I had to do a triple-take before remembering that Pinkun (Pin-kun) is the mascot character of the game, and that they weren’t trying to give out pin cushions. Though, no one will stop you if you want to store your pins in Pinkuns head.
