Akiba's Beat

Akiba’s Beat will launch for PlayStation 4 in Japan on December 15, publisher Acquire announced. It will cost 7,200 yen and retail and 6,200 yen via download.

The PS Vita version, on the other hand, has been delayed from its previously planned winter 2016 release window to “pending.”

First-print copies of the game include an original soundtrack, character reference materials, and a code to download the “Different Colors Idol Costume Set” add-on. View a list of the shop-specific purchase bonuses here.

In North America, Akiba’s Beat is due out for both platforms in early 2017.
