BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe is pleased to announce SWORD ART ONLINE Alicization Lycoris for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC via STEAM.
Based on season 3 of the anime adaptation of the franchises biggest story arc, SWORD ART ONLINE Alicization Lycoris features a stirring story faithful to the original anime, supervised by renowned author Reki Kawahara. SWORD ART ONLINE Alicization Lycoris embraces the medieval-fantasy world of the Alicization canon – with players able 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, meeting 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!”
