Here’s an overview of the game:
The SWORD ART ONLINE anime series, which is based on a series of novels of the same name by Reki Kawahara, depicts the adventures of the protagonist, Kirito, in both the virtual world of the mysterious next-gen online game SWORD ART ONLINE, and the real world.
The “Alicization” story arc of the novels and anime is set in a virtual world known as “Underworld”, which is also the setting for this RPG. The title faithfully recreates the story up until the final battle against the main boss of the first half of the “Alicization” arc, the Administrator. Following the battle against the Administrator, the game then branches out, telling its own original story.
Take control of Kirito, and together with his allies you know and love from the original works, set off on a journey of discovery in the vast world of the “Alicization” story arc.
Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris will be coming to the Nintendo Switch.
