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.
