Despite being the second mainline game to release in the west, Akiba’s Trip: Hellbound & Debriefed is actually an updated version of the first game in the franchise. Originally a PSP title, this remaster aims to make the game slightly more presentable for modern audiences.
In North America, a physical “10th Anniversary Edition” is available for pre-order alongside the standard digital edition — at the time of writing, the Anniversary Edition has not been announced for release in Europe.
Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed was a decent enough brawler set in a surprisingly faithful recreation of Akihabara, and it looks like this will be the case for Hellbound & Debriefed as well. July is a fairly hectic month for game releases though, so it’s hard to say whether a PSP remaster will be able to stand out from the crowd.
