To further vocalize the upcoming May 16 release of developer ACQUIRE’s upcoming satirical JRPG Akiba’s Beat , North American publisher XSEED Games has released a new trailer featuring the game’s main characters: a group of individuals led by, for some reason, a textbook “NEET” – someone who is “Not in Employment, Education or Training.” The trailer also highlights the English-language voice actors and actresses who contributed their talents to publisher XSEED Games’ largest English voiceover project ever with nearly 22,000 spoken lines. Akiba’s Beat will offer dual audio support with both English and Japanese language dialog options.

Meet Akiba’s colourful characters and form your best team to take on fantasies come to life. Become the champion of Akiba and restore the town to its rightful state in this new Action RPG.
