XSEED Games, the independent-minded console publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., today announced that its over-the-top, supernatural action RPG title AKIBA’S TRIP: Undead & Undressed is now available on Windows PC via Steam at a retail price of $29.99, €26.99, and £19.99, with a 10% discount if purchased during its first week of sale. This Windows PC version includes a “Visual Editor” that allows complete customization of virtually every aspect of the game’s look, enhanced visuals with support for a wide variety of screen resolutions including 1080p HD, and numerous Steam features such as achievements and trading cards.

In AKIBA’S TRIP: Undead & Undressed, players take an eclectic trip through a meticulous recreation of Tokyo’s “Electric Town” district, Akihabara (Akiba for short), to halt a growing malevolence that threatens everything the so-called “geek mecca” represents. Akiba has been invaded by vampiric monsters called “Synthisters” who prey on the anime- and game-obsessed patrons of Akiba – but these vampires feast on their victims’ social energy and will to live rather than their blood.

Taking on the role of a typical but naive local student named Nanashi, who has been transformed into a member of the walking undead himself, players must use an in-game smartphone app to identify which of the outwardly human inhabitants of Akiba are Synthisters, then free them of their clothes, exposing them to sunlight and sending them to the netherworld. To achieve this, players will use everyday objects from baseball bats to comic books to motherboards as weapons, beating enemies into submission before attempting to literally grab the shirts off their backs.

Dual Audio with English and Japanese voiceovers complement a narrative dripping with satire and nods to Japanese culture to create a bewitching modern day supernatural “otaku” adventure.
