Bandai Namco Games has announced new details about their upcoming PlayStation Vita RPG, Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment. The game is inspired by and based off of the manga, anime, and light novel of Sword Art Online and will feature gameplay similar to VRMMORPGs (Virtual Reality Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games). In the game, players will take on the role of the protagonist, Kirito. You are trapped in a virtual world along with thousands of others, imprisoned there by Aincrad, the game’s creator. You must fight your way out to escape your imprisonment, but if you die in this virtual world, your character will die in real life as well. Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment will also feature other various popular characters from the anime. The game is scheduled to be released as a digital-only title, this Summer on the PlayStation Vita. It will also include a copy of the first Sword Art Online game, Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment, which was originally released on PlayStation Portable and only available in Japan.
