Take A Look At In-Game Footage From Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment

By Ishaan . October 9, 2012 . 11:30am

Namco Bandai have shared a new trailer for Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment that gives us a latest look at the anime-inspired game. As previously reported, Infinity Moment is like the .hack games on PlayStation 2, in that it takes place in an MMO world, but isn’t a massively multiplayer game itself.



Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment kicks off when a dungeon in the game, Aincrad, falls prey to a system error. 75 floors of the dungeon are affected, and high-level bosses begin to appear on the wrong floors. The virus appears to want to take over the remaining 25 floors of the dungeon as well.


You play as Kirito in Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment. Namco Bandai will release the game for PSP but haven’t announced a release date yet.

    i need to have this  game <3

  • 果林


  • Too much excitement fills meeeee *faints*

  • shaolinsword

    If only I had a PSP and read Japanese :(

  • $30632660

    Turn based game while the source material is action mmorpg, yep that makes a lot of sense.

  • Is there a word about this game being released to EU?

    • Renaldi Saputra

       it’s a PSP game and it’s Bamco.. so we’ll not see this overseas.. just like what bamco did with their previous PSP games (digimon world re:digitize, accel world, etc)

  • the top of the article has USA so is this coming out in the states?

    • No, that was a mistake, sorry. Fixed!

  • shion16

    Sword Art Online only has 14 episodes and a bad ending.
    And now its releasing a videogame? Why ?

    Its not a bad series, but i prefer to live adventures in Za warudo

    • Read the novel. iirc that episode was cut short :/

    • SprintsMcGee

      It’s going to have 25 episode though

      • AuthorX

        I can’t wait for the next 10 episodes of Kirito in physical therapy to recover from the muscular dystrophy atrophy.

        • Chris Yuen

          It’s going into the ALO Arc, that would be my guess.

        •  You mean muscular ATROPHY.  Muscular dystrophy is a hereditary genetic disorder.

          • AuthorX

            Whoops, you’re totally right! Thanks for that, now I can correct myself and look slightly less stupid.

          •  No worries!  Your point about Kirito being in Physical Therapy for 10 episodes was priceless!

  • Well, that was horribly slow-paced and unexciting.

  • ZEROthefirst

    I don’t really find the anime series to be very exciting, so I’m sticking with the novels. Game-wise I’ll stick with .Hack, SAO overall… not really anything special except for nice animations :/

    • Well, fairy dance arc should be better w/out all the SS ryte???

      • ZEROthefirst

        Maybe, I dropped the anime around ep. 7 and don’t really have any interest in picking it back up to find out anymore lol

        • I suggest you skip straight to the main plot. Personally despite being a fan of the series, the SS episode is kinda hit-or-miss.

          Or just watch EP13 & EP14.

  • sd28

    not bad 

  • Raze

    Not that bad…..
    I think the battle is kinda slow…
    I just hope I’m wrong though…

    Now give me some footage in-town..

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    The battlesystem does looks a lot like the good old .hack where when we execute moves, our characters are not able to move at all.

    Looking forward for the game.^_^

  • Jrpgfanatic

    Sword Art Online has been my favorite anime in years. It’s too bad there’s no way in hell we’ll see this here. :(

  • Sergio Macellaro

    To me seems a poorly done game.
    What they want is gain $$ on account of godly anime popularity.
    Too bad it isn’t a PSV release.
    On Vita the graphics -with no more effort- id make justice for the Tv and LN artwork.
    But produtions costs… 

  • Masengan

    Epic anime, the game looks slow though.

  • tovarichyuri

    I hope it may not include the anime’s crappy ending

    • clearly u had not watch through the episode till the end, showing the title of the next episode. the anime will continue on, covering Fairy Dance Arc. The reason why it seem like episode 14 is the ending cause it mark the end of Aincrad Arc

      •  the second season starts friday. there is a preview trailer on youtube.

        • miju


  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    So hype.

    Dialogue looks like its going to be super freaking hard though.

  • wahyudil

    PSP? why not Vita or PS3 … I want to see it in HD

  • Stranger On The Road

    so the game is going to take place right after episode 13? I like the idea!

    I really love the anime and I like Kirito’s character, since I am a solo player. I’d love to play a game that would branch off from episode 13. I don’t know how episode 14 is going to be in the anime, but I’d rather have the game telling a different story.

  • David

    It looks really, really bad nothing like the anime!! Kinda disappointed :/
