Those of you looking forward to Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment (and yes, that now includes you guys in North America) will also have an update to look forward to. The game will be getting a major update in Japan this July. [Thanks, Game Jouhou.]
According to Game Jouhou’s report, a major update is scheduled for Hollow Fragment in July. This update will raise the level cap to 250, and will also add a new feature called “Grand Quests,” along with a new events, fields, and maps.
Since the level cap is being increased, the development team will also be adding new dungeons and bosses to go with it. The update will also add higher level monsters.
On the partner and relationship side of things, more dating event features with Sachi will be added, and Argo the information seller can now join your party as an ally. The difficulty and various system functions will also be adjusted.
Additionally, starting in May there will be weekly downloadable content, which will start out with items for lower level characters and a Kirito avatar from the Fairy Dance arc of Sword Art Online. This wave of DLC will carry on into the month of June, and will all be free.
Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment will be released on April 24 in Japan and this summer in North America for PlayStation Vita.
