Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment Coming To North America This Summer



Bandai Namco revealed to the press at their Global Gamer’s Days event that Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment is coming to North America as a downloadable title on PlayStation Vita. Now, we’re allowed to let everyone else know.


While Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment features Kirito as your default avatar, you actually have the ability to customize both his looks and his name. You’ll begin your adventure in a town on the 76th floor of Aincrad and begin working your way to the top, fighting bosses and clearing dungeons.


There’s also a dating element in the game, and dates will sometimes end with pillow talk. Single-player aside, though, Hollow Fragment also has a multiplayer mode, where you can have a party of four players with one AI partner each, making for a team of eight.


Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment will be available in North America this Summer. More details will be shared at a later date, but in the meantime, you can check out English screenshots of the game out below.
