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.

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 gamer in all of us.

This is my first review on Amazon so I’ll do my best to give you an entire overview of this game. To start off, this is an amazingly fun and unique type of game that will most likely fly under the radar for most gamers due to the zaniness concept of stripping clothes off from people.
Story/Presentation: You play as a boy named Nanashi (You can change the name and his appearance) and he took a part time job that will pay him with rare and collectable anime merchandise. Your character describes himself as an “Otaku” basically it’s an equivalent of calling him a Nerd or a Geek. He prides himself with the knowledge and collection of anything that is related to anime; hence why he signed up for the part time job. However, the “job” was a front for something more sinister. You start the game by waking up and realizing that you are strapped and chained. You are soon introduced to a man named Zenya. In reality, Zenya drugged Nanashi and converted...
If you're thinking about buying this game, I'd suggest that your enjoyment of the game will be directly proportional to your overall level of anime fandom. Within the first 10 minutes of the game, you discover that the main character has been partially transformed into a vampire-like creature, after responding to a sketchy job listing, having been enticed by the promise of limited edition figures and other otaku goods.
The game itself is part brawler, part RPG, and part visual novel. There are heroines to woo, vampires to strip, and plenty of weapons and accessories to tinker with. There's a battle arena to challenge and your little sister can fuse items into more powerful ones. So, it should be clear that every trope in the universe is out in force. Now, if the game took itself seriously, it would be dire, but fortunately its tone is lighthearted and fun.
Further, the game world is a fairly accurate rendition of the real-life Akihabara. Just like the real...
I hesitated to purchase this game. I usually pre-order every JRPG that comes out on amazon, but this one I let pass because I was worried that it would be nothing but a bunch of fan service with a horrible story to boot. Well, long story short I traded some games in and decided to give it a try. Let me just say, I am insanely impressed by this game. The story is actually pretty good and so far (about 3-4 hours in) and I haven't found myself hating it for long, drawn-out, pointless, nonsense conversation sequences like I encounter in games like Disgaea. As a matter of fact, I'd say 90% of the conversations so far actually have a point and drive the game's plot (I know, amazing right?).
But enough about my hang-ups on modern JRPG's, the battle system in this one is pretty fun too. It's a standard beat-em-up style game where you can choose and upgrade your weapons, clothing, styles and stuff like that. I could see it getting repetitive down the line, but so far I've...
