When you’re not climbing up the floors of Aincrad and fighting bosses in Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment, you’ll be going on dates with various heroine characters. Dengeki shows off some new dating features, and a closer look at the heroine costumes we previously reported.
In addition to being able to dress up Kirito in all kinds of gear, as demonstrated in the above image, you’ll be able to play dress-up with heroine characters by making them wear whatever you provide.
The image to the left shows Asuna telling Kirito that she feels at ease with him, but I’m not too sure if he can say the same about her when she’s wearing that mask. If creepy masks aren’t your thing, you’ll also be able to take on a “pair look” with your partners with matching equipment.
As previously reported, you’ll be able to get special alternate costumes for heroine characters by meeting certain conditions. Here’s another look at the Sword Art Online ladies in their alternate gear:
We also got a brief look at the “Material Gathering” system, a special feature that lets you acquire special skills and equipment through Hollow Points, which can be acquired by completing objectives and meeting certain conditions. Here’s a look at some of those special weapons and skills:
Dengeki also reveals that you’ll be able to sit down on benches while holding hands with your partner.
Doing so leads to the possibility of having longer conversations with your date, and a chance for taking some cute screen shots!
Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment is out in Japan for PS Vita, and will be available this Summer in North America.
