New information on Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet was released last week, showing off a bit more of the story, as well as several new character profiles. [Thanks, 4gamer]
The player will have to make hard choices in the latter half of the story. In the screenshots above, Kirito is mysteriously missing, while the main character seems to in pain as his HP bar depletes. The VRMMO game Gun Gale Online is about to enter another tension-filled situation.
The main character turns around with a grim face. It is up to the player to decide to course of the story.
Daisy (CV: Shiori Mikami)
Daisy is the ArFA-sys Type-X partner of Zeliska, one of the game’s heroines. As she is the same model as the protagonist’s ArFA-sys, they become quick friends and share information. She is treated preciously by Zeliska and does not participate in battle, despite having the capabilities.
Yui (CV: Kanae Itou)
Yui is like a daughter to Kirito and Asuna, and she appears in GGO as well. She acts as Kirito’s group mascot. She is completely innocent and will forgive anyone.
Argo (CV: Shiori Izawa)
Argo, or “Argo the Rat” as she is known, is an information broker who is also present in GGO. She displays a lot of interest in the ArFA-sys Type-X that the player brings around.
Philia (CV: Yui Ishikawa)
A self-proclaimed ‘treasure hunter’, aiming to get the ultra-rare ArFA-sys for herself. She mainly uses stealthy attacks and snipes from afar, but it seems she can also hold her own in close quarters with her honed sword skills. Philia originally appeared in Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment, and was saved by Kirito from the eponymous Hollow Fragment area.
Rain (CV: Miyu Takagi)
Kirito first met Rain in ALfheim Online, where she was the only other person to dual wield like him. In GGO, she uses dual submachine guns to take out the enemy. Due to being busy in real life, her login rate is pretty low.
Lisbeth appears in this game to help upgrade weapons. When you have the right materials, you can upgrade the weapon up to two times, with the end product having a “+” or “++” depending on the upgrade tier.
Weapons may have “Memory Chips” which give special effects to the weapon. By merging weapons together, you can have multiple “Memory Chips” on the base weapon, giving multiple special effects.
The Old South
The Old South used to be a glorious city full of man’s inventions, but now it is a crumbled, decripit ruin without rogue machines. Giant robots that shoot multiple missiles are just one of the enemies found inside.
Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet releases in Japan on February 8, 2018 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A PC version releases alongside the Western release on February 24, 2018.
