Bandai Namco Entertainment have announced that a brand new Sword Art Online game, known as SWORD ART ONLINE Alicization Lycoris, is in development for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC.

As per usual further details will be revealed at a later date but this latest game will follow (or take inspiration from) the events of SWORD ART ONLINE Alicization and act as a continuation to the stories told within past games; so familiar JPRG experiences and characters are to be expected.

Story:

SWORD ART ONLINE Alicization Lycoris, the latest game based on one of the most popular Anime stories ever made, will immerse you into the perfectly represented virtual world “Underworld” set in the Alicization arc. Step into a world with the enhanced essence of JRPG visuals, and play as the protagonist Kirito with brand new features and monsters.

Key Features:

THE FLOWER: Lycoris is a species of flower growing in the South of Japan. The name means passion, sad memories, reunion and self-reliance. A meaning linked to the story of the game…

FAITHFUL TO THE ORIGINAL WORK: Kirito has awoken in an unknown virtual world but it feels familiar to him…
This virtual world gives a misleading impression of reality where AI characters behave like humans…
In this world, Kirito meets a young man, Eugeo. There is a promise in the depths of their hearts that entwines their destinies.
To keep that promise and stay together, they must venture onwards…

MEET WITH YOUR FAVOURITE CHARACTERS: Kirito, Alice, Eugeo but also Administrator will all be a part of this game. Experience once more the story of Alicization with a JRPG essence and meet all the characters from the Anime series
