Weird Wednesdays: Stripping in Akihabara

Posted on: April 6, 2011

I couldn’t make this up if I tried. Acquire, makers of such games as the “Way of the Samurai” and “Tenchu” series and “Class of Heroes,” has a new game coming out in Japan called “Akiba’s Trip“.

Not just another trip to Akihabara...

You see, vampire-like beings called Kageyashi have invaded Akihabara, and it appears that the only way to defeat them is to expose them to sunlight. But alas! They’re wearing clothing! Darned clothing, always in the way! What can you do? You can read on, is what you can do.

Of course, you do what any red-blooded Japanese boy who’s defending Akihabara from blood-sucking vampires would do: strip ’em!

The Akihabara scenery is actually quite true-to-life.

They even used real stores (and real maid cafes) as models.

You may ask yourself, “When can I get my hands on this wonderful strange game?” It’s due out on May 19 for PSP. In Japan. Don’t hold your breath for an English release.
