New Sword Art Online Game to be Announced in October

Bandai Namco will announce a new Sword Art Online title will be revealed on October 1. According to Gematsu, the game will be revealed during the Dengaki Bunko Fall Festival. The Sword Art Online stage event is scheduled to take place from 11:30 to 12:10 JST, and Producer Yosuke Futami will be there as a guest at the event.

Sword Art Online is a popular anime series featuring characters in an advanced MMO world, making the series perfect for conversion into an actual video game. While there have been a few Sword Art Online games in Japan, not all of them have made it Westward.

Feel free to peruse our reviews for more information about the series!  Here’s an excerpt from our review of the latest crossover title, Accel World vs. Sword Art Online:

Any fans of Reki Kawahara’s work should definitely check out Accel World VS Sword Art Online. Not only is it the best playing Sword Art Online to date, it also has a great story that links the two world directly together. It all culminates in a fantastic twist ending that managed to finally get me invested in the world of SAO, which is something the previous games failed to do. It’s also helped tremendously by the addition of Accel World characters, as they immediately caught my attention.
