Namco Bandai recently shared some new information on their upcoming PlayStation Vita title, Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment, that introduces a new character to the series by the name of Philia, along with Kirito customizations and four player co-op. The game’s official website updates us with new actions and more.
Here’s another look at Philia, the mysterious girl Kirito meets at the “Hollow Area”.
In Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment, you’ll be able to explore the world with your own partners. The game features a partner system that allows for different actions such as holding hands, after furthering your relationship status with the character.
If holding hands isn’t enough, you can also be your partner’s knight in shining armor by holding them in your arms, as you walk around town.
In the previous PSP title, Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment, there was a town called Arc Sophia, where the characters used as a home base to strategize for their next dungeon run. The town will also be there in Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment, and it’s also where you’ll be starting the game.
Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment will be coming out next year for PlayStation Vita.
