Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization adds to the customization options for character creation, and Dengeki gives us a look at it, along with a look at its Swamp map, and “Named Monsters.”
As shown in the above image, you have a variety of customization options with name, event name, gender, height, physique, bust size, eyes, mouth, hair, skin, hair color, eye color, voice, and weapon.
The above is a look at some of the examples of custom created characters.
Following is a look at the Swamp map:
The Swamp map is said to have a damp atmosphere with various parts to it, including a waterfall, a dangerous marsh, and a mysterious cave. It’s also mentioned that it’s difficult to watch your steps while in this cave, so you might find yourself in a dangerous situation if you’re not careful.
While out on the field, you’ll occasionally come across exceptionally powerful monsters called “Named Monsters.” The above image shows a Named Monster that is at a much higher level than Kirito and his party.
Unlike boss monsters that allow you to properly prepare yourself before taking on the challenge, you’ll never know when the Named Monsters will appear, so you’ll want to be sure to travel safely on your adventure at all times.
There’s no shame in making a run for it if you don’t think your party could handle the Named Monster; however, if you’re up for the challenge then you just might find yourself with a new rare item, should you prove victorious.
Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization will release in Japan in fall 2016 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. The game is headed westward in 2016. You can check out the latest trailer in our earlier report.
