‘Sword Art Online’ Release Dates For Europe & North America

Publisher Bandai Namco has announced that “Re: Hollow Fragment” and “Lost Song,” two titles based on the anime and manga series “Sword Art Online”, will be making it to North American and European Shops. According to the post on the Bandai Namco Europe website, “Sword Art Online Re: Hollow Fragment” will be made available as an exclusive download to Europe, Middle-East and Australasia players through the PlayStation Network for the PlayStation 4 in the middle of the year.”

In addition, “Sword Art Online: Lost Song” is also scheduled to be released through retail stores in Europe, Middle-East and Australasia for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 this coming fall season. The title is also set to be released for the North American audience at the same time. The game has already been released in Japan, China and Taiwan.

In both titles, players will be able to take on the role of Kirito, the main protagonist for “Sword Art Online.” Much like the plot in the anime and manga, players can also create their own characters, customizing their looks and set skills. Gameplay closely follows that of the series’ storyline, and players will have the option to play in both offline and online co-op modes with up to four people in a multiplayer party.
