Sword Art Online: Lost Song producer, Yosuke Futami, discussed the game’s success in an interview with Dengeki Online.
Seeming satisfied, Futami stated that Lost Song “did 100,000 units in North America, and even in Europe it sold 50,000 units.”
Futami noted the substantial number of digital downloads, selling “about 30,000 units in North America.”
The producer then went on to talk about the upcoming Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization, offering a few new details about the title:
Something particular to Hollow Realization is the ‘support cry system,’ though that’s a temporary name. This is a system where, not only does the player praise other characters, but other characters praise the player. For example, when you attack an enemy with a cooperative attack, Asuna, Lisbeth, and Silica will attack, and they’ll trust Kirito (the player) to deliver the finishing blow. But once you deliver that attack, everyone will praise you like, ‘You’re amazing!’
Some satisfying numbers for Lost Song, and more juicy details about Hollow Realization. Now all we need is for the next game to release!
Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization is set to launch this year on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in North America, Europe, and Japan.
