Bandai Namco has updated the official Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization website with first screenshots and an outline of the 2016-due PlayStation 4 and PS Vita game.
Get the information below.
A reconstructed virtual world—the “people” did not demand this world.
Logged in. This is a somewhat familiar world. An origin world. This “world” is not the world we live in.
The year 2024—.
“Sword Art Online” (commonly called “SAO”), which is set on the floating castle “Aincrad,” turned into a death game where getting a game over means you die in real life. When the player known as Kirito cleared the game, the virtual reality world collapsed—.
This incident, known as the “SAO Incident,” caused a great ripple in society.
Some time passed—.
From the life-threatening virtual reality hardware “NerveGear” came the the guaranteed-safe “AmuSphere” virtual reality hardware, which ushered in the golden age of virtual reality.
Under the pretense of research and development for new possibilities in virtual reality, a new game was built on the old Sword Art Online server.
The name of this new game is “Sword Art Origin” (commonly called “SA: O”), and in this new virtual reality MMORPG reminiscent of past incidents, Kirito receives a message.
“I came back to Aincrad.”
A new adventure for Kirito and friends begins.
- Kirito – A virtual reality MMO player, from Sword Art Online to ALfheim Online. He is known as the “Black Swordsman.” Although thin, he is a top class fighter in virtual reality MMOs. He is an SAO returnee.
- Asuna – During the SAO era, she was sub-leader of the “Knights of the Blood,” one of the game’s best guilds. After meeting Kirito, they decided to live together. Thanks to her brilliant sword skills, she earned the nickname “The Flash.” She is kind to others, but powerful at her core.
- ??? – A mysterious girl. With no expression, she gazes at Kirito from a distance, and leaves them a message.
