Akihabara, famous for otaku culture, maid cafes and, uh, blood sucking demons? Blood sucking demons who can be killed by stripping them? Sounds just like Akihabara!

Sequel to the original Akiba's TripAkiba's Trip 2 features over 130 real world shops and faithfully recreates Akihabara as the stage for stripping. There are also a multitude of weapons and items to choose from to aid Akiba in his quest (seriously, if you've seen the gameplay videos, then you know there are a lot)! Introducing an AI controlled partner and the new UNISON STRIP SYSTEM! If Akiba's Trip 2 sounds awesome, it's because it is!

TOKYO TWILIGHT GHOST HUNTERS

PlayStation®Vita [Visual Novel]

Debuting at the Tokyo Game Show 2013, Tokyo Twilight Ghosthunters wowed the crowd with it's novel approach towards role playing and it's extremely beautiful 2D portrait art. The latter is depicted as living breathing images akin to the semi static scenes of Vanilliaware's Dragon's Crown, but with more depth than one could imagine. 

This supernatural Visual Novel with Romance elements is separated into two parts. In the first part, Players will be investigating the mysterious events at the Kurenai Academy High School in a visual novel format. While those familiar with this genre will realize that the choices made will effect the ultimate outcome of the game, the selection of choices in Tokyo Twilight Ghosthunters are substantial - players will choose from 5 different emotions and the 5 human senses to convey their desires. 

The second part is the battle part, and it is just as unique and unconventional as the mashup presented in this game. As ghost hunters, players will face the challenge of setting traps on a board like grid with focus on strategy, intuition and risk. There are also many exciting visual effects that signify success and failure as to keep things fresh.

SHINING RESONANCE (Japanese Language)

PlayStation®3 [RPG]

The ancient continent of Alfheim, the land of the gods, was once home to the world's dragons but they have since had their souls crystallized and scattered throughout the world. But not all dragons have been lost...

The existence of a new dragon, and the game's protagonist, 'Shining Dragon (Yuma) Irvan' has been confirmed by the great powers within the world. The imperial army, church forces, and the Dragon Slayers themselves are all in pursuit of Irvan's untold power. 

Despite the odds Ivan's power was saved from the clutches of his pursuers by a single maiden, a memory that would not soon be lost. Shining Resonance tells the beautiful tale of a reunion between a young girl and a dragon, as well as the foretold miracle to follow.

The battle system is in real-time, where you'll be able to control any one of the four characters as you fight. Each character has special attacks, magic, weapons, and a unique overall combat flavor. What is notable about Shining Resonance's combat is how fluidly the player enters a battle: when you encounter a monster on the map and engage, the battle will seamlessly begin on the same field. 

The ideas of music and nature are heavily linked with dragons in the Shining Resonance mythos. The elements of nature are wielded by 'Dragners', who will make up your party and fight using magical weapons - which all have their concept design inspired by musical instruments. The BAND system introduces the concept of 'Rune Songs' which are party-wide buffs that change their effects depending on which character is leading, or the 'Center', of the song.

Harem!
