Amazing news with the reveal of two similar series’s coming together in a game that looks incredible. Sword Art Online and Accel World both involve storylines that sees protagonists living and having adventures in a virtual world. Both come from the mind of Reki Kawahara and both have a massive fanbase.
The game is called Accel World VS Sword Art Online: Millennium Twilight and is being put together by Bandai Namco and Dengeki Bunko. It’s being released for both the PS Vita and the PS4 and for the main characters, Sword Art Online’s Kirito will be featured as well as Kuroyukihime from Accel World.
The events of Accel World occur twenty years after Sword Art Online and they both occupy the same universe. Not a lot is known about Kuroyukihime which leads fans online to come up with a theory that Asuna and Kirito are actually her parents. Because the events take place in two different storylines, there may be an element of time travel involved as well.
Unfortunately there’s no release date as yet but it is slated to come out sometime in 2017 which really isn’t that far away.
