Sword Art Online: End World Goes Live In Japan

By Spencer . March 1, 2013 . 1:18am

sao-05Namco Bandai and social game publisher GREE teamed up to make a Sword Art Online game for smartphones. Sword Art Online: End World is based on the popular anime series, but instead of playing as Kirito you create an original character. You can choose your character’s gender, weapons, and armor. A blacksmith in-game lets players customize equipment.


Sword Art Online: End World is set on Aincrad. You will meet characters from the series like Kirito and Asuna along with original characters made for End World. After you form a party you can climb through dungeons and defeat bosses to move further through Aincrad’s floors.


Sword Art Online: End World is a free to play game with additional items available for purchase.

      Yuuuuup. I blew a good chunk of change while playing their game Zombie Jombie, then when cheaters started power leveling and creating multiple accounts, instead of fixing the loopholes to make it fair for all players, Gree just started updated the game around the cheaters. I’m bummed that SAO went to Gree. I’m definitely not a fan of theirs.

      He’s also a Lancer now, it looks like, which would probably dock his luck even further down than it already was as GARcher T_T

    Awww. I was expecting a MMO, so we could joke about not being able to log-out, like when .hack//sign was being broadcasted.

    • Oh noes, we are trapped in a GREE game! Need to get likes & more shares ASAP!!

  • Christopher Nunes

    GREE… what is that again? A web-browser game for the mobile phone?

    Seriously I would be more interested in this game if it were on a handheld, but I guess it can’t be helped. It does look promising and I do miss the old “pseudo-online MMO” games like .hack so I’ll keep on eye on it for now.

    How good is the SAO universe?

    • >How good is the SAO universe?
      Setting wise, I consider it fine/OK.

      There a PSP RPG for SAO btw. (SAO: Infinity Moment) Just in case you don’t know abt it.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    is this game available on google play store?
    seems legit although i don’t like the anime

  • HatsuHazama

    Hm? Unless those are from some other game, the screenshots in the bottom of the article give the impression this would be better suited to DS or 3DS over smartphones.

  • This game will sell! I hope they make an english version of it

  • yadi ajah

    Give Me Link download T_T i want this game :(
