Akiba’s Beat PS Vita Game Delayed to April 27
Game developer Acquire announced on Tuesday that it has delayed the PlayStation Vita release date of Akiba’s Beat from March 16 to April 27 in order to improve the quality. The company apologized and thanked customers for their understanding and patronage.
The game shipped in Japan for PlayStation 4 on December 15 after a delay from fall 2016.
XSEED Games plans to release the game with English and Japanese audio tracks in North America in the first quarter of 2017, after a delay from its original winter release schedule. Players who preorder the game will receive a 3.5″ plushie of the game’s mascot character Pinkun. PQube will release the game in Europe this spring, and offer a limited edition for both PS4 and PS Vita with a bag, a soundtrack CD, an artbook, and a Pinkun plush.
The game is a successor to the Akiba’s Trip series of games, but is the first “action RPG” in the series. XSEED Games released the second game in the series as Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed, also with dual audio.
