New Accel World Game Feels Like A Fighting Game

By Spencer . December 14, 2012 . 2:00pm

Namco Bandai released a trailer for Accel World 02: Apex of Acceleration and battles have a fighting game feel. Players can adjust four stats: Offense, Defense, Evasion, and Accuracy. If your accuracy is higher than the enemy’s evasion you’ll hit them. Silver Crow will fight a bunch of characters – even level 9 ones in Accel World 02.


Accel World 02: Apex of Acceleration comes out for PSP and PlayStation 3 on January 31, 2013.

    As mandatory, there needs to be a SEASON 2 FUCKING WHEN?!?!?!?!?

    Putting that aside, the graphics look horrible, is that the PS3 version?

    • British_Otaku

      Probably the PSP version. Usually they show the footage for the most pretty version of the game, perhaps they want to market to the PSP especially as it has a big market in Japan. Minor as it may sound, the title of the video begins with “PSP・PS3” implying that it is the PSP more so, methinks…

      -Putting that aside, the graphics look horrible, is that the PS3 version?

      Man, that’s not the PSP version of the first game. Stuff had some serious shading issues (characters having their armor darker than it was, etc.) and LAAAAAAAAAG.

      The intro with Ash [B]Roller, isn’t in the game and was probably just made as an intro. The gameplay is most likely the PS3 version.

    • We’re talking about the psp and not ps Vita right? Its 100% the Ps3 version, the psp cannot produce these visuals. in fact I’ve never game with any form of complex light shaders, this has plenty.

      On a seearate note why its not psvita/ps3 is completely baffling, it would be alot cheaper to port and probably gain more attention.

      I can only think of two cases where season 2’s were announced before the 2nd to last episode were aired.

    Way excited for the Accel World EX 02 for this (re-incarnate ex best song on the ost, and Sympathia (mintjam vers).

    Hope Sunrise gives us Accel World s2 announcement soon, need Taku and Haru to have way more skills.

  • British_Otaku

    Looks more like a turn based RPG, even with the presentation of the HUD matching the show’s aesthetic and fighting games. >_>

    • GaiunxWolfenX

      it’s a turn-based rpg by all means, just like the first one (and kinda confusing for me XD specially casue i don’t know japanese) the graphics look nicer than those of the first psp game, i would not bet that this is not the ps3 version

    • natchu96

      Well, considering the world was VR, it was either a fighting game HUD or a RPG one, the latter which would make no sense at all.

      Not that I have a problem with that.

  • AzuNo17

    As far as one vs one turn based RPGs go. I was hoping something more like fate extra, black rock shooter, or even last ranker. This one has very limited camera movement making the area look way too empty. And the moves are a lil on the short side of exciting. Maybe it’s the loose impact ( or hit detection) of the hits and zoomed out static camera. It seriously doesnt feel like they hit each other. IDK I was hoping for more since the show had some cool dynamic fights.

  • Teach me, Ash Roller lol.

    • WFoong

      Hehe, if they mistakenly wrote $$… XD
      BTW, the PSP version probably won’t be a good one again, they just show the PS3 graphic to hide the PSP flaws… -.-

  • Any one remember legend of legia? That was an rpg that played like a fighting game too.

  • Abhishek Posooa

    No character creation?
    *nothing to do here*
