Bandai Namco Entertainment and Bandai Namco Entertainment America have announced the release of Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam).

Even though I’m not a huge SAO fan, I do enjoy watching some of the content from this franchise. The concept of being trapped in a VR game attracted my interest. I also liked watching SAO The Movie: Ordinal Scale. The trailer for SAO: Alicization Lycoris has intrigued me, too.

Here’s the official description:

Play as series protagonist, Kirito, and become immersed in the “Underworld,” a mysterious virtual world set in the anime series’ Alicization arc. Featuring epic battles, stunning JRPG visuals, and an expansive world to explore; Kirito’s journey through the latest SWORD ART ONLINE game is ready to begin.

Following the events of the Sword Art Online: Alicization anime series, Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris finds Kirito in a mysterious but familiar virtual world, “Underworld,” where A.I.s behave like humans. As players take control of Kirito, they will relive heart-pounding scenes from the series through intense combat. Players will also encounter fan favorite characters including Eugeo, Alice, Administrator, and many more. A wide world awaits Kirito and his friends in this exciting adaptation to the Sword Art Online: Alicization series.

For those who don’t know, the SAO: Alicization anime premiered in Japan back on October 6, 2018. It is streaming on Crunchyroll, Hulu, and FunimationNow. The series is adapting the entire “Alicization Arc” of Reki Kawahara’s original novels and will air for four quarters of a year.

The television anime adapting the entire “Alicization Arc” of Reki Kawahara’s original novels has ended its first half. The second half will premiere this October under the title SAO: Alicization – War of Underworld.

Are you looking forward to playing the SAO: Alicization Lycoris game?
