If you’ve been waiting for a traditional Sword Art Online game where it faithfully follows the story of the anime, then you’ve finally gotten your wish. Bandai Namco has announced that Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris will be coming out this year for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC. Bandai Namco describes the game:

“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.”

I am extremely excited for a chance to finally partake in the Sword Art Online game that follows the events of the anime. As of this time, we do not know when the game will release but we will update you as soon as more information is released. Let us know if you’re excited as well and before you go take a look at the announcement trailer for the game below.
