Finally, here’s an old trailer and some more details for the game:
Updated from its original release for a new generation, AKIBA’S TRIP: Undead and Undressed Director’s Cut places players in the role of Nanashi, an otaku mysteriously transformed into a vampire and thrust into a conspiracy of “Synthisters” plaguing the electronics mecca. Alongside a colorful cast of allies known as the ‘Akiba Freedom Fighters,’ Nanashi must defend his fellow otaku from vampire predators, discovering that the best strategy to defeat them is to strip them of their bare essentials and expose them to the cleansing power of the sun! Featuring a fully voiced “true ending” route starring lovable maid Kati, original side quests introducing more offbeat otaku denizens of Akihabara, and an arsenal of new weapons and armor, AKIBA’S TRIP: Undead and Undressed Director’s Cut brings modern supernatural adventure for the Japanophile of discerning tastes.
AKIBA’S TRIP: Undead and Undressed Director’s Cut (Switch) does not have a release date yet, but is slated for a Summer 2023 release in Europe and North America, and 2023 release in Japan.
