Crunchyroll shared a new SAO Progressive: Scherzo of Deep Night trailer, this time featuring the Sword Art Online movie 2’s English dub. The video highlights returning characters from the first film, like Asuna, Kirito, and Mito. This comes as ticket sales open for the Canadian and US showings in February 2023.
The beginning of this SAO Progressive: Scherzo of Deep Night trailer picks up with a reminder of what happened in the first movie. This is a retelling of the Sword Art Online story, only with Asuna as the primary protagonist. The first installment focused on explaining what led to her playing the virtual reality MMO and getting trapped in Aincrad. It also picks up initially with her relationship with her classmate Misumi Tozawa, who plays the game as Mito. (Mito is the new character debuting in these films.)
After that introduction, the video shifts to new footage from SAO Progressive movie 2. We see both Asuna and Kirito facing opponents and challenges. The new theme song “Heart,” by Eir Aoi, also plays.
