Following the many announcements from Bandai Namco the other day, the company announced that they’re bringing Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization to the west for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in 2016. Here’s a look at its announcement trailer:
Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization will tell an “origin” story of Aincrad, and it’ll take place in a different world that is fully connected and adjoined, unlike the one that is split into multiple layers in Aincrad.
As far as its action goes, Hollow Realization will have a battle system that uses a skill palette, raid fights, and plenty of elements that involve giving orders to party members. The management aspect will be one of its biggest highlights.
