Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment Promo Will Take Less Than A Moment To Watch

By Spencer . December 2, 2012 . 11:14pm

"With the end of the world in sight, I live with you in this moment" is an appropriate tagline for Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment. Namco Bandai wrote that snippet and shared a new TV commercial for the PSP game.


Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment starts at the beginning of the end of the world. You control Kirito who is in the virtual game world known as Aincrad. The PSP title begins on the 75th floor and the goal is to reach the 100th floor. Reki Kawahara, the original writer of the Sword Art Online light novel supervised the original story for Infinity Moment.


Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment is scheduled for release on March 14, 2013.

    Whoa, an SAO game? Looks interesting…

  • Detrimont

    so if you start at floor 75, then technically Kirito’s level should be around 60+

    • Maybe they will nerf him?? Or the monster are even more powerfull than him?

      • natchu96

        I heard the general advice is to outlevel the floor by 10+ before even trying . . .

    • Somazu

      Actually he’s like level 96 at the end of aincrad (floor 75). The clearing group had a rule to be at least 10 levels above the floor’s level

  • frokenok3

    Oh, wow i knw about the game and followedthe news but i didn’t know Kawahara-san supervised the story! That’s really cool! I just hope i can find that Limited Edition. Play-Asia is already out of stock in Pre-orders T_T

    Playing a game about a player playing a game.
    Ooooh, the IRONY!

      “le me insert yo dawg meme”

    • Jacob Johnson

      how is that irony :|

  • Renaldi Saputra

    I think this game will be overrated as the anime itself is too overrated.. I hesitate about this game though it’s still interesting

    • Just avoid the comments lol.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        no no, I’m really serious.. without looking at the comments, this anime is getting more and more overrated even in Japan itself.. and I’m getting sick of it.. many ppl exaggerate SAO and said it’s very good.. yet I said the anime is kind of mainstream one just like naruto bleach one piece and fairy tail.. I see nothing special in it (in character placement, conflict, etc).. even it contains lot of ecchi and even incest scenes..

        • >a lot of ecchi
          Are we watching the same series? I don’t recall once a while shower scene/boob grab etc as ecchi lol. (As far as I can remember.)

          Wow, you said it….get ready for downvotes ^.^;

          • Renaldi Saputra

            i don’t know maybe everyone’s preferences are different.. but for me it’s already ecchi.. and when kirito fall over asuna touching the boobs, it’s already ecchi.. also so many romance scenes

          • If you want ecchi try watching to love ru darkness. That show is one horrible mess

            [edit – I’m a mess at the moment. What I’m saying is I don’t really consider SAO to be ecchi.]

          • Renaldi Saputra

            umm just saying.. I’m an anti-medium or high level echhi.. ecchi mostly ruin the situation and story in an anime..
            and I already know to love ru.. it makes me puke though

          • Hm well consider what already been shown I dont think those can ruin the situation or story. However shows like to love ru dakrness LIVES on ecchi which is something im purely against.

          • Robert Leonardi

            if you’re that scared of ecchi, better stop watching anime then, heck, stop playing games from japan too and go watch hello kitty or something

          • Renaldi Saputra

            scared?? I’m not scared of ecchi, but actually I’m sick of it especially those which contains medium-high ecchi.. it ruins stories for me..
            anw there’re still epic anime from 90’s until 05’s that contain very less ecchi and have better characterization and stories..

            hello kitty?? it’s just same as pokemon.. childish anime

          • Robert Leonardi

            like i said, don’t watch anime at all if you care so much about not watching ecchi, go watch hello kitty or something (hell even pokemon had ecchi LONG time ago, in Generation 1 too).

          • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

            If this is the way you view ecchi, i would suggest you not reading manga or any anime anymore lol.

            Even Berserk, Claymore, Shingeki no Kyoujin had ecchi and that manga is highly gore ones.

            I mean, when Hokuto no Ken one of the manliest manga in the world can had ecchi, what can you said again?

          • Renaldi Saputra

            I still tolerate light ecchi.. but nowadays I see medium-high ecchi in most of anime.. fortunately wolf children ame and yuki didn’t have that..
            well, i’m not a manga reader.. only read digimon v-tamer 01 and d-cyber
            anw there’s still a few anime that are still tolerable for me though..
            I give bad rating for SAO not actually bcos it has ecchi scenes, but literally because it has bad character placements and unapparent story..

          • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

            Well, if you don’t read manga so i can’t really mention a lot there but, your definition of ecchi is just too broad. You mention many romance scene is equal to ecchi.
            By that simple word, you already put all shoujo series like Tonari no Kaibutsu, Vampire Knight, Kimi ni Todoke as ecchi manga.(Where actually, in that show you can find zero fanservice.)
            Even Gundam will be considered fanservice lol if that is your definition of ecchi.
            And it is truth that nowadays, more and more shows are using ecchi as their main appeal but on the other sides, there are also shows that don’t use ecchi as their main appeal here. Keep looking for them.^_^

          • Renaldi Saputra

            nope, i just don’t like much romantic scenes.. I didn’t claim it as ecchi though.. I watched byousoku 5cm and I rated it bad, but still didn’t say that 5cm is an ecchi anime..
            shoujo series?? well I’m indeed against them especially anything related to magical girls..
            for shoujo I give an exception for Serial Experiments Lain which for me is great..

            and that’s why my interest in anime has gone down nowadays..
            I still prefer anime under 2007

          • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

            Ohh okay then.^_^ The way you phrased the word makes me think that you consider romantic scene as ecchi lol.
            Well, if you want i can suggest several anime with little to no fanservice here but i don’t know whether you will like a bit old anime here?

          • Renaldi Saputra

            well, I prefer old series like Dennou Boukenki Webdiver, Rurouni Kenshin, Hunter X Hunter (1999), Shaman King, Tetsuwan Atom, Rockman.EXE, Digimon series (exactly), The Law of Ueki, etc..
            Or I can say that I’m more into Shounen but not the one like Naturo Bleach One Piece KHR or Fairy Tail which for me are mainstream ones.. Well, maybe underrated Shounen suits me more

          • iirc there was like 3 ecchi scene though i really wouldnt put it in the same league as naruto, bleach, one piece or whatever.

          • Let see:
            -Asuna boob grab
            -Chp 16
            -Sugu shower
            -Leafa and Slyph Lord boob

            Still, compare to show like Toaru Majutsu no Index or To-Love Ru, SAO is considerably tame so far….

          • chapter 16? are you referring to 16.5? iirc thats just a doujin the writer did for fun. It isn’t officially part of the novel version.

          • Perhaps I should say it better lol: The part where Asuna striped to her undies.

        • DUDE, if you read the light novel, or in fact, if you even watched One Piece or Fairy tail, you would see that this gets a lot deeper, I haven’t watched the anime, but, SAO gets pretty deep, with a lot of tough decision places.

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Everything is overrated here. It is just depending how you see them. If you are the one who love the show, you won’t said it is overrated while if you don’t like the show, it will be overrated.

      Just like how some people feel Skyrim is overrated as they are unable to love the game.(Like me here.) but people who enjoy the game will feel that the game deserves all the hyped.
      Opinions different between people here.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        you maybe right..
        However, I don’t like gundam or anything mecha but I don’t see them as the overrated ones..

        • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

          Thats why i said it is your opinion.
          I am a very very big fan of Gundam series and i said it deserve all the hyped for that series however, for some who don’t like the shows, they will always tries to find any single flaw of the shows and claim that the show is overated.
          If you asked, the main reason why SAO is famous in Japan is simply because the author knows what the demographics like.
          The female fans love a male M.C who is cool looking, smart and of course devoted to his love interest.
          The male fans loves a lot number of beautiful babes coming out in the series to add more color to the series.
          Gamer loves many of the online game seting that defines the story progression.(SAO,ALO,GGO,etc)
          Children loves a good battle scene as they would love to do that with their friends.
          You see how, Reki is able to get so many different kinds of demographics which is why it become so popular.(And this is also the main reason why One Piece is so popular in Japan as the author is able to get as many consumer from different kind of market which create a very healthy ecosystem to the sales.)

    • XYZ_JolteonZ980

      I will say that some of the comments for Sword Art Online pen it as the best anime ever and that is being overrated, how ever, I do think ALfheim Online is the best part of it and the whole anime is one of the better ones released around. Kirito is at the top of the chart for best protagonists since Naruto Uzumaki, Natsu Dragneel, Ichigo Kurosaki, Killua Goldick, and Tsunayoshi Sawada. (however Accel World > Sword Art Online)

      • Renaldi Saputra

        I wonder what’s the score of that top anime character based on..
        I mean, is it based on personality or behavior?? or just number of fans..

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        I love Killua.^_^ I want him as my little brother lol.^_^

  • Wow big freaking spoiler there for those who didn’t watch/read SAO…..

    Yui: Hey Leafa just stole my place! / xD

  • 0:06 I’m getting kinda tired of that face….

  • xXDGFXx

    I wish it was on Ps3 or vita. Still, the psp is also awesome.

  • Makender

    Maybe you get to play as an uber Kirito versus Heathcliff as a tutorial of sorts. Then when Kirito “dies” he gets a level wipe and we enter the alternate timeline starting at floor 75 to 100.
