Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment’s Big Update Won’t Be Built Into The Western Release

Recommended Videos

Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment is getting a large update with roughly 30 extra hours of playable content. The update has new areas, date event scenes with Sachi, and more monsters.

 

"The update won’t be built into the Western release of Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment," producer Yosuke Futami said in an interview with Siliconera. "We’re currently considering to bring the large scale update from Japan over."

 

Futami explained since Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment is a pseudo-MMORPG he wanted to release future updates for it similar to how other MMORPGs have regular updates. "Argo uses a dagger and how he plays is similar to Silica. Originally, Sachi wasn’t available to date. After the update, you will be able to hold her hand and carry her." Futami confirmed Sachi will have new event scenes, but couldn’t say what those are.

 

"There are three main bosses [in the update]. One type is a giant boss that is slow, but more powerful. The second one is a nimble boss that’s fast and smaller. The third one is a combination of the two. Players will have to come up with different strategies to defeat these bosses," Futami said about the new enemies.

 

Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment comes out on August 19 in North America and August 20 in Europe as a PlayStation Vita download.
