Spike, known for creating action games based on feudal Japan's noble warriors, has decided to do complete 180-degree turn with its recently announced title. Its new game is called Akiba's Trip, and it's dubbed as a "vampire underwear Akihabara simulator" according to a Famitsu post translated by news site Andriasang.

The game is set in Tokyo's most famous electronics hub known as Akihabara. The game stars an 18-year-old student caught in a war between Akihabara's protectors, the NIRO and the Vigilante Group, and the Kaguyashi, the vampire antagonists of the game.

Gamers can change the main character's costumes and make him wander around familiar locations of Akihabara re-created in digital form for the game. A smidgen of gameplay information was revealed at Famitsu; not only can gamers control the protagonist to walk around the hub, but there is also a vague mention of a combat system where you can deal positional damage to your enemies and exploit their weaknesses like sunlight.

Akiba's Trip is slated for an April 14 release date in Japan.
