Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment will be Namco Bandai’s latest game in the Sword Art Online series, that will be focusing more on movement and special attacks to match the feel of the actual series. This week’s Dengeki PlayStation magazine shares new details on the upcoming Vita game.
According to the report, the new mystery heroine who you’ll be meeting in the new unexplored “Hollow Area” of the reborn Aincrad, goes by the name Philia. In addition to Asuna, there will be other partners you’ll get to team up with, and they will also come with their own actions.
Namco Bandai previously teased that the game will have co-op, and according to magazine reports, it will be through ad-hoc connectivity, where four players along with their partners can team up for an eight-man party to take on the dungeons of the new Aincrad.
Those of you who might’ve been concerned about having to play as Kirito, and possibly having a full party of nothing but Kirito clones, worry no more! Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment will allow you to customize Kirito according to your preference, by being able to change his face, hairstyle, voice and more.
Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment comes out next year for PlayStation Vita.
