Akiba's Beat is developed by Japanese developer Acquire and is a spiritual successor to the adventure title Akiba's Trip. The game sees players wander around Akibahara and question its inhabitants before they dive into fantasy-themed dungeons called Delusionscapes. The PlayStation 4 version of the game was released in Japan in December 2016, with its PlayStation Vita release currently set for March 16, 2017. The game is set to be released in North America by XSEED Games in early 2017, with PQube's European release set for spring 2017.
