Namco Bandai is making video games with the Accel World license. These games are based on a light novel turned anime series where people can enter virtual worlds through the Internet. Haru Arita, a stocky boy who is often picked on, is the main character. He dives into virtual worlds at his school and learns about the Brain Burst which accelerates a user’s brain. The manga follows Haru as he battles other Brain Burst users.
Namco Bandai is working on at least two Accel World games – Accel World Stage 01: Awakening of the Silver Wings and Accel World Stage 02 (temporary title). Dengeki PlayStation says the Accel World games will be available for PlayStation 3 and PSP, but it isn’t clear which title is going to which console.
Accel World Stage 01 and Stage 02 turns the anime series into a simulation game with 3D graphics. Players will see Dual Avatars face off against each other during battles. Namco Bandai’s Accel World games will use the world view from the anime series, but have an original storyline made for the video game.
