Not sure how this one slipped under my radar and I was sure it was just a hoax when I eventually did hear about it but no! Bandai Namco has confirmed that there is an Accel World VS Sword Art Online game for the PS4 and the PS Vita and even better, it’s receiving a Western release too. Here’s a bit of a blurb from Bandai Namco themselves:
The worlds of Sword Art Online and Accel World have begun to merge! In the midst of the chaos, the strongest Burst Linkers from Accel World and Alfheim Online Players from Sword Art Online must come together in a war of the worlds to challenge the Seven Kings of Pure Color and rescue a dear friend from the clutches of Personna Babel. This all-new original story comes from Reki Kawahara, the creator of both Sword Art Online and Accel World, for an interdimensional adventure between two popular anime franchises.
Fro what we’ve heard, your team will be built from three characters and while the SAO characters will be able to use magic skills and flight, Access World characters will be able to incorporate “Acceleration and special techniques.” Here’s an awesome trailer:
The game releases on July 7, 2017 for Australia.
