Sword Art Online Re: Hollow Fragment

The English release of the newly announced Sword Art Online Re: Hollow Fragment will have a new English translation, Bandai Namco confirmed.

The game is an updated port of PS Vita’s Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment, which launched last year. The western release used the Asian release’s English translation of the game, which, well, was bad.

“We’ve heard your feedback!” Bandai Namco said in a Facebook post. “Sword Art Online: Lost Song will come out physically with Japanese voices and English, German, Italian, Spanish & French subtitles! And the digital version of Re: Hollow Fragment on PS4 will have its English translation redone!”

Sword Art Online Re: Hollow Fragment is due out for PlayStation 4 via PlayStation Network this summer.

Thanks, NeoGAF.
