If you'd told me there was a sequel to Akiba's Trip on the way I'd be expecting more of the same. The same simple 3rd person combat with the same "I probably won't play this one in front of people" theme. Instead we're getting Akiba's Beat, an interesting looking rhythm based JRPG

Akiba's Beat also has the rarefied pleasure of being a Western Vita release, as it's coming to both Playstation Vita and the PS4, with a European release date of 19th May

Publisher PQube are promising dual audio of Japanese or English, plus a 1:1 recreation of Akiba

Akiba's Beat looks pretty promising, and while there's a trailer below it does look like you might need to try the game to fully grasp the musical combat mechanic
