Can’t Go To The Real Akihabara? Try This Game!

Can’t Go To The Real Akihabara? Try This Game!

Akiba’s Trip 2 is about two things: stripping vampires (and thus exposing them to lethal amounts of sunlight) and the mecca for otaku worldwide: Akihabara. And as the game sports over 130 stores from the real world Akihabara, I went out and took a few pictures to see just how well the game captured real life.

And what a great job it does. If you can’t hit up the real Akihabara, this is the next best thing. Check out the gallery below to see for yourself.

Akiba’s Trip 2 was released on November 7, 2013, for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in Japan. There is currently no word on a Western release.


  • It’s like a little piece of home.. in a game about ripping clothes off vampires…
    Thank you world.

  • The real question is if you go up to that building in the title picture there, will the ground floor still be completely filled with porn in the game?

  • Did Neko JaLaLa make it?!?!

    ANyway, interesting they changed the “OFF” chain of stores to “ON” – looks…. rude in English now (not that Book Off etc didnt already sound rude)

    Interesting changes to the AKB48 naming – and I cant see Don Quiotie??

    Also, is that Super Potato in the 7th last comparison picture? (about Taito Game Station?)

    • The “AKW48” building IS the Don Quijote building, they’ve slightly changed the name (don -> pon) and taken away the penguin’s hat amongst other things but it’s still there.

      And yeah, that’s Super Potato, inside the dodgy little entrance.

  • Ah, Akihabara. I will never smoke a cigarette, drink an alcoholic milkshake, and watch grown men praise a giggling Japanese maid lip with glow-sticks all at the same time ever again … unless I can convince my friend it’s worth the trip, that is.
