Summary

AKIBA'S TRIP: Undead & Undressed is an open-world action RPG in which players undertake numerous missions in a virtual recreation of Akihabara, Tokyo’s popular ”Electric Town” district. The player’s goal is to identify vampires called “Synthisters” with the help of an in-game smartphone app, then engage them in battle to strip their clothes off so their bodies are fully exposed to sunlight. Boasting a unique combat system in which everyday objects become weapons, multiple story routes, a varied cast of characters based on common anime and video game tropes and a narrative dripping with social satire and subtle nods to Japanese pop culture, AKIBA'S TRIP is a present-day supernatural adventure for the nerd in all of us!

While it may have its fair share of shortcomings, like its clunky combat and relatively few places to visit, there is plenty of here to to enjoy such as the high degree of customization and a script that the translators appeared to have a lot of fun working with. That along with the strong presentation, beautiful art design, and slick UI, there’s plenty here to enjoy and a definite purchase if you’re big into otaku culture. For everyone else, you may want to consider your options a little more carefully more before diving in.

At the end of the day, the humor alone can’t carry this title away from the chains of its boring, repetitive combat and poorly designed world. Those who can endure the tedium might be able to find enjoyment in the ridiculous premise and colorful cast of characters, but I certainly couldn’t.

Although there’s a niche that will no doubt revel in the game’s eccentricity, those who cringe at otaku culture will find very little value here. Even looking past its more tasteless tendencies, the game’s combat is average and its design is repetitive. Still, it’s a complete write-off by any means, in part thanks to its vibrant depiction of Akihabara and the surprise inclusion of English voiceover.
