Namco Bandai recently announced a new Sword Art Online game for PlayStation Vita, titled Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment, which will include co-op to go with spacious fields for Kirito and co. to explore. Dengeki gives us a glimpse of the game’s new heroine and a few more details on the game.
The new character’s name has yet to be revealed, but thus far, we know that she’ll be meeting Kirito in the new unexplored “Hollow Area” of a reborn Aincrad.
The above is a look at the new Hollow Area, that appears to be part of some sort of ruins. There’s a certain reason as to why this new area hasn’t been explored, until now.
According to the report, Namco Bandai will be using fan feedback gathered from their previous PSP game, Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment, to vastly improve the upcoming game’s system. They say they will be adding a variety of interesting content to appeal to fans of the Sword Art Online series.
Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment is slated for release next year for PlayStation Vita.
