XSEED Games has confirmed some additional release details for Akiba’s Beat, including voice-over and pre-order bonus information.

Taking to its AkibaFest panel in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles, California this past weekend, XSEED Games has announced that Akiba’s Beat will be getting dual audio voice-over options – including dialogue support for both English and Japanese. The English language option will be available out of the box, while the Japanese option can be added via free day one DLC.

Additionally, they revealed that Akiba’s Beat mascot Pinkun will be available as a 3.5″ pocket plushie for pre-orders at participating North American retailers… while supplies last.


Akiba’s Beat is due to release in the West sometime in the first quarter of 2017, with a Japanese release window for the title still up in the air.

    Cool! I’d better pre-order it and avoid a ton of hassle, but I generally try not to pre-order games to avoid getting sucked up into hype. I don’t know what to do!
