BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe is pleased to announce SWORD ART ONLINE Alicization Lycoris for PlayStation®4, Xbox One and PC.
Based on the third season of the anime and its biggest story arc yet, SWORD ART ONLINE Alicization Lycoris features a stirring story faithful to the original anime and supervised by renowned author Reki Kawahara. SWORD ART ONLINE Alicization Lycoris embraces the medieval-fantasy world of the Alicization, giving players the ability to wield great swords, meet knights and come face-to-face with mythical creatures.
This new chapter will take place in a mysterious virtual land “The Underworld”. Players will play as Kirito and visit this new realm, traveling with his friend, Eugeo. They will embark on a quest to save Alice, their childhood friend who disappeared after violating the laws of The Underworld.
“SWORD ART ONLINE Alicization Lycoris will feature new gameplay experiences from those seen in previous SAO titles, ensuring the game will enchant existing fans as well as new comers” said Yosuke Futami, Producer at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc. “Lycoris is a word borrowed from the botanic vocabulary, the Lycoris Radiata. It’s a beautiful flower, that symbolises loss, separation, reunion and passion, something perfectly fitting of the story of the Alicization Arc!”
SORD ART ONLINE Alicization Lycoris will be available on PlayStation4, Xbox One and PC.
