Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris is poised to plunge players into an all-new SAO adventure and the new trailer just teased a huge feature of the upcoming RPG.
Bandai Namco’s new Sword Art adventure brings fans of the ongoing isekai anime into the latest iteration of the franchise. Based around the Alicization arc of Kirito’s adventures. The latest glimpse of the game shows off the battle system trailer for his game and things look like they are taking a slight deviation from the tried and tested methods that worked in games like Fatal Bullet.
While exploring the murky depths of the Underworld, a mysterious virtual environment full of dangers and set in an area of the Alicization plot, and grouping up with friends for online play might not seem massively innovative, this isn’t what we were talking about. A new in-game Tactical Learning AI System features, allowing members of these parties to memorize their own moves using the commands sent to them and then use these moves in specific situations. It seems inspired by the original sword-skill that surfaced during earlier plot arcs.
Players will also be pleased to hear that Bercouli, Fizel, and Linel also join Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris as playable characters and more familiar faces are due to join the game. Singer ReoNa, whose single “forget-me-not” was used as the second ending theme to the anime series Sword Art Online: Alicization, will sing the main theme of this title too.
Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris looks like it could be one of the best Sword Art Online games out there and if we’re not likely to see another season of Log Horizon soon then I’m all in for checking out this game when it comes to Xbox One, Pc, and PlayStation 4 on 22 May.
