Akiba's Beat from XSEED games for the Sony PS4 is a modern-day satirical spin on a classic Japanese RPG formula.
Set in a true-to-life recreation of Tokyo's Akihabara ward ("Akiba" for short), players will take control of a party of characters led by protagonist Asahi Tachibana as they seek to rid the town of anything out of sync with reality.
There are two sides to the gameplay: first, players will wander the streets and question the quirky Akihabara residents on a variety of subjects related to the mystery at hand, ultimately unlocking fantasy-themed dungeons known as "Delusions capes" which are infested with monsters called "delusions."
These delusions are encountered on the map and fought in a party-based action battle system, putting players' skills to the test and creating a uniquely challenging experience that seamlessly blends a real-life locale with the secret delusory world of its residents' true desires.
- Real-Time Action RPG Combat, Touch enemies on the map to be transported into a party-based real-time combat scene where skill and reflexes alike are put to the test.
- Real-Life Setting with a Fantastical Spin, Explore Tokyo's Akihabara ward, interacting with quirky locals and enjoying a taste of Japan's otaku mecca before entering surreal "Delusions capes."
- Modern-Day Mystery with a Touch of Satire, Question uniquely caricatured persons of interest in hopes of finding the source of Akihabara's many changes, before it's too late.
