Bandai Namco released a new overview trailer for their action RPG Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC-via Steam on July 10, 2020.
The trailer highlights Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris’ battle system where players can use a few skills to get through encounters. Action like timing-based parries, guards, and deflections will allow characters to take less damage as they strategize their attacks. Players can also control up to four characters with 4 AI partners, who work together to execute joint attacks.
Each character has a skill tree and an arsenal of weapons to master. Additionally, each character has access to different forms of magic that can be exceptionally useful in a match.
Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris begins with Kirito entering a mysterious new world known as the Underworld. In this place, NPCs behave more like humans. As Kirito, players will be able to experience the scenes from the anime arc where Kirito encounters Eugeo, Alice, Administrator, and other characters.
The game will be an accurate retelling of the anime series. During the game, Kirito will find himself in the “Underworld”, a mysterious virtual world that is established during the Alicization arc from the anime. The game will feature memorable battles and an expansive world to explore as Kirito fights through this new adventure.
