Bare It All Again When Akiba's Trip Hellbound and Debriefed Releases This Summer

The Akiba's Trip Hellbound and Debriefed release date means summer's about to get a whole lot steamier.

Akiba's Trip Hellbound and Debriefed finally has a release date. XSEED announced the original Akiba's Beat remaster will release July 20 for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via GoG and The Humble Store.

Akiba's Trip Hellbound and Debriefed follows Nanashi after a mysterious vampire saves his life. Now half-human, half-fiend, Nanashi must navigate the complex politics of Akihabara's supernatural societies and save the world by exposing its secrets. The emphasis is on "expose" there, since combat in Akiba's Trip involves taking vampires' clothes off because, of course, it does.

But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
