Dual Audio with English and Japanese voiceovers complement a narrative dripping with satire and nods to Japanese culture to create a bewitching modern day supernatural “otaku” adventure.

In AKIBA’S TRIP: Undead & Undressed, players must repel a brooding malevolence that has fallen over Tokyo’s popular Akihabara (Akiba for short) electronics district. Akiba has been invaded by creatures known as “Synthisters” who prey on the anime- and game-obsessed patrons of Akihabara like vampires, but feast on their social energy and will to live rather than their blood. Only direct exposure to sunlight can stop this menace.
