Let’s be frank. The Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris battles might be a little intimidating, if you only see them described in text. Bandai Namco has been pretty up-front about describing the up to eight character fights. But sometimes, just hearing about it might not help someone understand. So, the latest SAO: Alicization Lycoris trailer helps with that by focusing entirely on the battle system.
Here’s the new trailer looking at some of the Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris battles. It begins by showing a group of four actual players running through the field, then getting into fights against large enemies. When you are in a fight, each of the four actual players and their four partner characters show up to beat up on opponents. You can also see a group of three characters pull off a Chain Burst attack together at the 20-second mark. That’s followed by the video showing how consumable item usage will work.
Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris will make its debut on July 9, 2020 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Japan and on July 10, 2020 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in North America and Europe and PC worldwide, due to pandemic delays that pushed it out of May 2020. As a reminder, Leafa, Lisbeth, Silica, and Sinon will all appear.
