Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment Shows More Features And Pillow-Talk

By Sato . March 26, 2014 . 1:03pm

Dating will be one of the pastimes you’ll have access to in Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment, and the ultimate goal is to have some pillow-talk with your sweetheart, followed by a special CG event. Dengeki gives us a new look at that feature and more.


Before getting to the pillow-talk, let’s first take a look at the different types of areas you’ll be exploring in Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment.


Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment will feature six main areas including the hub where you’ll be starting your journey and gearing up for the next dungeon. Each one will have a different terrain and atmosphere.


Here’s a look at the different places:


The main hub is kind of like a command center, but there seem to be plenty of mysteries behind the area. Next to that is the Sea of Trees, one of the unexplored areas of the new Aincrad.


Similar to the Sea of Trees area, not much is known about the Netherworld area, since it hasn’t been explored much either. The Giant Hole area is said to have a huge dungeon somewhere below.


The Bay area is an exotic place, where you’ll find hidden caves and other sea creatures. Finally, the Floating Rocks area appears to be home to a giant tower, where one might find a bunch of flying monsters.



Players will be taking on the “Hollow Missions” that will span across all six Hollow Areas. You can acquire special skills, weapons and more by completing these missions that will have you take on tasks such as “defeat this monster”.


Those of you who’ve kept up with our past Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment posts may have seen plenty of CG events that show how you’ll get to spend some pillow-talk time with the heroine characters after dates. This time, we get a look at Strea and Sinon.



Additionally, here’s a look at the two in their wedding dress outfits:

  • Alexandra Cordes

    The question that matters most to me, though, is… Can he date his ‘sister’?

    • Raw

      The most important questions are never answered.

    • greeeed

      she is his cousin -> in japan cousin marriage = legal

      so answer is = yes he can

      • David García Abril

        They grew up together as siblings -> the Westermark effect is still there = still gross

        Not that that ever stopped Japanese writers when they want to pander to the otaku base, though…

        • Alexandra Cordes

          I dunno, I think it’s pretty cute.

      • Alexandra Cordes

        I meant in this video game, and her being his cousin was the reason I said it inside of apostrophes.
        Regardless, glorious. :3

      • Xerain

        Cousin marriage is legal in about 1/3 of the US, generally in the coastal states.

        More importantly in Japan Cousin marriage -> socially acceptable. Even in U.S. states where it’s completely legal, you’ll still get strange looks at the least.

    • DyLaN

      He can in IM so the same should apply here as well.

    • greeeed

      His sister/cousin character gaming name = Leafa
      look at top right picture

  • I hope dating and pillow talk with your sweetheart will be enogh with just one character (so I wont have to date every dateable girl in the game), cause I have some good plans :D

  • *looks at the first pcture* OOOH! ACTION! ACTION! ACTION! ARGH! WHY ISN’T THIS WORKING!? xD

  • Firion Hope

    Some of these locations actually look beautiful, this is a nice looking game

    also d’awww the “pillow talk” looks cute

  • TheSwordUser

    I need too see these “English subtitles” in Asian version before I get hyped for this.

  • Spider-Man

    I recognize that bed from another genre of game.

    Don’t judge me.

    • lackofstyle

      Wait….what game…I’m curious

      • Spider-Man

        I’d rather not say on here. But it’s pretty bad.

          • darke

            Probably eroge’s.

    • Time Sage

      It made me think of Fate/Extra myself.

  • Kornelious

    So if IIRC, this is basically gonna have a re-worked version of Infinity Movement plus the new Hallow Areas….So the area’s in the article are from the new Hallow chapter and all the original floors are gonna be in it, right?
    BTW Strea Pillow talk for the win :P

  • cyberkinghardy

    I only have R3 account so I’ll probably wait for the Asian version.

  • wererat42

    Forget Waifu Art Online, I’ll take a Log Horizon game any day… so long as it has plenty of husbandos.

  • Yan Zhao

    But more importantly, can you go with the HAREM ROUTE!?

  • Time Sage

  • I am so Hyped for this!!!

  • leingod
