Bandai Namco announced that their action RPG Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC-via Steam on May 22, 2020. This came after their Brazillion YouTube channel posted the trailer early last week.
Pre-orders for the game are open now where those who pick up the title will receive the four winning outfits from the Sword Art Online Original Costume Design Contest, along with in-game currency as an added bonus.
Additionally, the publisher released the trailer again, but this time in English for western players to understand what the characters are saying. The trailer gives a detailed preview of the gameplay and environments that players will soon discover in this new adventure.
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.
