About AKIBA’S TRIP: Hellbound & Debriefed - PS4™ System, Nintendo Switch™, PC
Return to a lovingly recreated Akihabara circa 2011 to explore the bustling streets and back alleys of this otaku paradise. But beware—a seedy underworld lurks in the shadows of Japan’s famous electric town! After finding his missing friend unconscious and bleeding in an alley, young otaku Nanashi is attacked by a sinister figure straight out of a horror manga. As he lays dying, a mysterious young lady offers him some of her blood, both saving his life and changing it forever. Expose your opponents to sunlight in the first entry in the AKIBA’S TRIP series, arriving in the West for the very first time!
