What happens when two anime worlds collide? This is the question that Bandai Namco Entertainment wants you to answer yourselves in Accel World VS Sword Art Online!

The virtual and accelerated worlds have collided! Sword Art Online’s Svart Alfheim and the Accelerated World have begun to merge, and in the midst of the chaos, Yui has gone missing. Join Kirito and over 30 playable characters, as they challenge the Seven Kings of Pure Color from the Accelerated World to gain access to Yui’s location. Players from both groups come together in a war of the worlds where the strongest Burst Linkers and ALO Players are on a mission to save Yui from the hands of Persona Vabel, a mysterious figure who lives a thousand years in the future.
