The sights and sounds of Akihabara are faithfully represented and everyone who has been there will be able to walk the streets of Electric Town and recognize where they are, while those who have not yet been can familiarize themselves with the geek and gaming mecca quite intimately.
Investigate and dispel Delusions
The only way to deal with a delusion is for Asahi and his friends to find out who is having the delusion and confront them with it, opening the door to their Delusionscape, where you will have to defeat a boss enemy to dispel the delusion.
Adaptable real-time combat
Swap between characters for entirely different abilities and combat styles. It's up to you!
Combat with a musical twist
Play different songs that you can collect during the course of the game.
Imagine Mode gives you unlimited Action Points and keeping your combo up during the chorus of the chosen song will build your damage multiplier, allowing Asahi to make quick work of most enemies and make quite a dent in tough bosses.
Everyone can use a Maid
Customize your characters
Each character will unlock new skills as they level up and can equip up to eight skills at a time.
Weapons can be upgraded with computer parts in order to strengthen their stats.
Equip clothing accessories to improve stats or even, in some cases, change your look entirely!
Trading cards can be found around Akihabara and can be equipped to grant new abilities, such as halving the SP cost of skills or increasing elemental defense.
