Bandai Namco has released new details and screenshots of Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization.
Agil and Klein, both former Sword Art Online players, return and will join Kirito for new adventures in Aincrad in Hollow Realization. Through them and other characters, players will be able to interact with and experience new social and online features.
The game starts in the Town of Beginning, a town where players can customize their avatar and prepare themselves for combat encounters. To help them in these new challenges, players can meet and hire NPCs (with more than 300 of them available in the game), create special bonds and even offer them equipment. The closer they are to the player, the stronger they will become.
Playes will also be able to go online to enter raids and fight bosses with both NPCs and other players. Namco Bandai states that Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization offers a wider world with whole new environments to explore. Players can also expect to find new monsters that have previously not been seen in the series, including Shadow Demons and Skeletons.
Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization releases this Autumn on PS4 and PS Vita.
