Bandai Namco Announces Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris for PS4, XB1, and Steam That sure is a subtitle. 04.01.19 - 11:31 AM
Bandai Namco has announced a new game based on the popular Sword Art Online anime series. Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris (yes, really) is based on the Alicization arc of the series, and once again stars series protagonist Kirito as he explores the mysterious virtual "Underworld." According to Bandai Namco, Alicization Lycoris will be the first Sword Art Online video game to "faithfully follow the events of the anime series," as opposed to taking place in an alternate continuity.
Following the events of the SWORD ART ONLINE Alicization anime series, SWORD ART ONLINE Alicization Lycoris finds Kirito in a mysterious but familiar virtual world, "Underworld," where A.I.s behave like humans. As players take control of Kirito, they will relive heart-pounding scenes from the series through intense combat. Players will also encounter fan favorite characters including Eugeo, Alice, Administrator, and many more. A wide world awaits Kirito and his friends in this exciting adaptation to the SWORD ART ONLINE Alicization series.
Check out the announcement trailer below, along with more new screenshots in our gallery. Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris will be coming out on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam.
