Namco Bandai Games recently released a trailer for their new upcoming Sword Art Online game, which is subtitled Lost Song.
This game is set in the same Virtual Reality Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (VRMMORPG) universe as Swort Art Online: Hollow Fragment, which was released Internationally last summer (BTW, it’s a great game! Cool digital gift under your digital Christmas tree and all!).
For the record, Sword Art Online (SAO) is a Japanese anime that aired for two seasons between July 2012 and the end of this year. The original story follows Kirito, a gamer who gets stuck along with 10,000 players in a VRMMORPG. If you are into Japanese anime and haven’t watched SAO yet, you’re really missing out! An English-language version aired on Toonami, and that is a great option for anime fans.
Sword Art Online – Lost Song – Trailer, Subtitled in English
As we can see in the trailer, flying will probably be a good section of the gameplay, and I like how the aerial combats took place in the trailer!
As of now, an International release hasn’t officially been announced, but given the success Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment met, I’m pretty sure we will have an announcement soon after the Japanese release!
Sword Art Online (Japanese voices, subtitled in english) can be watched on the anime-streaming service Crunchyroll here (registration required, free trial available).
