    Well that was…different

  • DeathDias71

    Wedding dress you say?

  • Pdugna

    Can hate sword art online all ya want but man that was some pretty cutscenes.

  • Firion Hope

    Wow those cutscenes are something else

  • Kornelious

    So they ARE starting off from Infinity Moment’s story, The tutorial being in the beggining of the Hollow Fragment part as part of that recent gameplay vid had me worried
    I just hope they translate the Infinity Moment part into English in the Asian release as well
    Still hoping that the Asian version gets a limited edition and the pre-order bonus too (Even though I probally can’t redeem it on my US account :( )

    • Renaldi Saputra

      maybe you gotta cancel the asian version
      bcos I heard that only menus are in english

      • Trevor

        Where’d you hear that from? Because that would be a huge bummer =/

        • Renaldi Saputra

          idk, someone said it to me
          but, just being cautious…

          • Kornelious

            I don’t think we’ve had a good look at the english screens yet, remember the Menu is in english even in the Japanese version, So they have to be translating something other than that……

      • DyLaN

        The chinese article I saw clearly said subtitle/menu is in chinese and english subs.

    • DyLaN

      I think I said be4 that IM is included in HF and both of them are different “routes” on the same timeline.

      I think it should apply to IM segment as well. I doubt they will just translate one part and ditch the rest.

  • れいか

    I’m actually not interested in this game (or the series itself) but the cut-scenes are marvelous… Maybe I’ll give this a shot… sorta shallow for a reason to try out a game though lol

    • Tinye

      No way dude, right there with you

    • DyLaN

      Just my 2 cents.

      While IM is indeed a decent good game for fans of the series, but if you are there for gameplay then there are better JRPGs. It depends on how improved HF gameplay it is then.

      Then again, I’m not guilty of liking things just because of the visuals/character design.

  • Prinny Dood

    Next you guys should say sword art online gets localized dood!

    • God

      If that happens some developers might get lucky, i just gotta contact some of the biblical whores still roaming the earth…

    > animated cutscene

    Shouldn’t that means hand drawn animation instead of CGI? Not really a big deal, but just a minor pet peeve of mine.

    Btw, the previous updates on the “System” segment:
