Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization Release Date Announced Alongside Pre-Order Bonuses
30/08/2016 6 Comments
Bandai Namco Entertainment have today confirmed that Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization, the latest videogame entry into the SAO Universe, will be released on the 8th November 2016 for the PS4 and PS Vita within the UK and Europe.
It’s the news all Sword Art Online fans have been waiting for (me included) and to make this announcement extra special the publisher has revealed some interesting pre-order bonuses for those that wish to pre-order the game.
In short those who pre-order from selective retailers (GAME, Grainger Games, Shopto and Zavvi) will receive access to three pieces of DLC Content; namely nightwear for female characters within the game and two (male and female) variations of outfits based upon the recently released GOD EATER game. In addition those who pre-order and purchase the game from Zavvi will receive access to a special lithograph that has been signed by the creator of Sword Art Online himself: Reki Kawahara.
It’s currently unclear if all pre-orders from Zavvi will include the bonus DLC and signed lithograph as at the time of writing Zavvi have a ‘special‘ PS4 listing (which includes the bonus DLC and lithograph) but is priced £5 more than the standard game. I am confident however that product listings on Zavvi will update soon-enough with the correct information and pricing.
In addition to the pre-order bonuses Bandai Namco Entertainment went on to explain that the Collector’s Edition of Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization is still available to pre-order at Grainger Games, Shopto and Zavvi.
For the time being at least Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization will be released on the 8th November 2016 within the UK and Europe for both the PS4 and PS Vita in digital and physical forms.
