Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris Trailer Highlights Battles, Customization, and Multiplayer


Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris gives us a tour of ‘The Underworld’ in a new trailer. The video from Bandai Namco highlights the battle system, character customization, and multiplayer.

For combat, the game offers seamless battles with a “Tactic Emulating AI System” that allows party members to memorize their own moves.  The AI basically memorizes party commands and individual commands you’ve given and acts accordingly for future situations.

You can also force characters to learn the commands by simply switching to the characters during battle. The game offers a complex battle system along with many skills and Sacred Arts to make your own combos.

In multiplayer, you can go on an adventure with a party of up to four players. Character customization has a varied selection of hairstyles, color options for hair, highlights, and both eyes for your avatar.

Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris is the first time players can experience a Sword Art Online anime storyline in-game format. In the game, you play as Kirito as the protagonist and visit a mysterious virtual world known as “Underworld.”

Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris will release for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in Japan on May 21, 2020. The game will release in North America and Europe on May 22, 2020. In case you were wondering, it will have bed scenes.
