This time around, it won’t be a death game like we saw in the first part of the series, but Sword Art Online: Lost Song will take place in a reborn ALO, where Kirito and friends will fly around and enjoy the VMMORPG. 4Gamer shares a look at the latest screenshots.
Sword Art Online: Lost Song will take place on a new floating continent of ALO, called Svartalfheim, which was added as part of a major update to the VMMORPG. It will consist of various terrain, such as grassy plains, deserts, and icebergs.
In Lost Song, you’ll get to fly around all over the vast map of Svartalfheim. Not only for exploration, but you’ll also get to attack from 360 degrees in the new aerial combat system of the game.
Not all combat takes place in the air, as the above screenshots shows Kirito taking on some mobs using Sword Skill on land. There’s also a new magic system as well.
Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment was all about the pair battles with Kirito and another partner. This time, he’ll get to take two others with him to triple-team against enemies.
So far, Bandai Namco have revealed that the above five characters of Kirito, Leafa, Asuna, Silica, and Lisbeth will be in the game. There will also be a new character(s), which has yet to be revealed.
Finally, here’s a look at some more flying and fighting action:
Sword Art Online: Lost Song is slated for release in Japan on March 26, 2015 for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.
