PQube today announced that it will publish Acquire’s action RPG Akiba’s Beat for PS Vita and PS4 in Europe in Q1 2017.
Akiba’s Beat will have its first EU Showing at this weekend’s MCM Expo in London from October 28 – 30, 2016 at the PQube stand.
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. 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.
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!
In North America, Akiba’s Beat will be released for the PS Vita and PS4 in Q1 2017 by XSEED Games.
