Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization English story trailer

New trailer asks, "Who is Premiere?"

Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization

Bandai Namco has released the English story trailer for Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization. It is the same trailer that premiered in Japan earlier this week.

Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization is set in the vast world of “Sword Art: Origin,” where characters like Strea, Philia, and the mysterious NPC Premiere stand alongside Kirito and Asuna. The story kicks off in the “Town of Beginnings.” Bandai Namco promises “loads of different landscapes,” such as the “Valley Map” and its aquatic environment. But players will need to be careful as monsters roam these maps, including “Jelly Floaters, Shadow Demons, Verminous, and the Shaman of Gigas, a strong boss using a strange magic.”

Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization is due out for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita on October 27 in Japan, and this fall in North America and Europe.
