Akiba's Beat

PQube has announced a limited edition version of Akiba’s Beat for Europe, which will only be available at select retailers, and confirmed a delay from the game’s previously slated early 2017 release window to spring 2017.

The limited edition includes a copy of the game, special box, and high-quality art book. In the United Kingdom, it is exclusive to GAME.

Set in an accurate but hyper-stylized recreation of Akihabara, the world-famous district of Tokyo where technology meets culture, Akiba’s Beat is an action RPG with real-time party based combat. As dark forces descend on the town, the people’s memories, hopes and dreams manifest in reality and warp Akihabara in strange ways, threatening the very fabric of space and time!

It is up to self-professed NEET, Asahi Tachibana, to lead a rag-tag group of chosen ones to take on the freakish manifestations of Akihabara in this action RPG. Meet Akiba’s colourful characters and form your best team to take on fantasies come to life!

Akiba’s Beat will be available for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita.
