Undead & Undressed will officially be hitting the PlayStation Vita this August in North America, according to a press release by publisher XSEED.

According to the announcement, us North Americans will be able to pick up Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed for PlayStation Vita (and PS3) on August 12th, the price set at $39.99. It’ll be available both digitally and physically (at select retailers), so no worries about getting your media of choice if physical is your thing.

If you (somehow) haven’t heard of this game yet, here’s the official description from the press release;

In AKIBA’S TRIP: Undead & Undressed, players must repel a brooding malevolence that has fallen over Tokyo’s popular Akihabara (Akiba for short) electronics district. Akiba has been invaded by creatures known as “Synthisters” who prey on the anime- and game-obsessed patrons of Akihabara like vampires, but feast on their social energy and will to live rather than their blood. Only direct exposure to sunlight can stop this menace.

That’s where players come in. Taking the role of a young man named Nanashi who was transformed into one of the walking undead himself, players must identify which of the outwardly human men and women of Akiba are Synthisters with the help of a handy in-game smartphone app, 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. Once enough stripping experience has been gained, each of the enemies’ unique clothing items can be claimed by players for their personal use as well.”

Sounds pretty unique right? 🙂

They’ve also released a second trailer;

…and a few screens for us to check out;

Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed is also releasing October 10th in Europe, so if that’s your region of choice don’t fret – you’re not left out, just delayed a bit.
