The North American and European pre-order promotions for Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization have been revealed and, while they’re similar, they aren’t exactly identical. North America’s offers only include DLC costumes for characters, while Europe gets costumes and a lithograph.
North America’s Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization pre-order comes with a DLC pack that offers four costumes. Asuna and all female characters will be able to wear maid or nightwear outfits, after the Exclusive Costume Pack is redeemed. Meanwhile, male characters will be able to dress up as God Eater’s Soma Schicksal and female characters can look like God Eater 2: Rage Burst’s Livie Collete.
Europe’s pre-orders include a DLC pack that includes the God Eater Soma, God Eater 2: Rage Burst Livie, and Asuna nightwear outfits, as well as a lithograph. The lithograph only comes with physical copies and is signed by Reki Kawahara, Sword Art Online’s author.
This Sword Art Online installment will have an improved Skill Tree System, which will let characters learn Battle Skills and Extra Skills, which unlock and improve specific abilities tied to certain weapons or general fighting abilities. It also will have Cosleeping Events, where you can lie down next to and sleep with the male or female character you’re involved with in the game.
Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization will come to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in North America and Europe on November 8, 2016. It will be available physically and digitally in both regions.
Update: This article has been updated to clarify that all female characters can wear the maid and nightwear costumes.
