Bandai Namco further presented Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris on the occasion of Gamescom 2019 with a new trailer and various images of the game.
Announced last April, Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris is based on a story true to the original anime, overseen by author Reki Kawahara. Set in the fantasy-medieval world of the Alicization arc, characterized by the use of swords, armor, and characteristics typical of medieval fighters, players are called to meet knights and face mythological creatures.
This new chapter will take place in a mysterious virtual land, the Underworld. Players will take on the role of Kirito with whom they will visit the new kingdom, meeting his friend, Eugeo. Soon they will undertake a mission to save Alice, a childhood friend of theirs who disappeared after violating the laws of the Underworld.
“Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris will include new gaming experiences compared to those seen in previous SAO titles, making it a must-have for both fans and new players,” said Yosuke Futami, producer of Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc. ” Lycoris is a term borrowed from the botanical dictionary, in fact, Lycoris Radiata is a splendid flower, which symbolizes the loss, separation, reunion and passion, all elements that are perfectly suited to the history of the Alicization arch! ”
On the occasion of Gamescom 2019, Bandai Namco also held a contest based on Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoriswhich allows fans to design new costumes for game characters. Fans of the series will thus have the opportunity to test their creativity and imagine a new costume for Kirito or Alice. One winner per area will be chosen and his or her idea will become reality.
