Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment - Product of the Week, Toys, and OP+ED Music!


We've been talking about this game for quite some time at Play-Asia.com, especially on how this version of Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment will be the only physical version with English and Chinese subtitles; finally the wait is over, as the release date is this week - specifically the 29th of May! 

In this post, we cover the toys that any fan would want, pre-orders for the Anime season 2 OP+ED theme, and the final details of the game before release!


SWORD ART ONLINE: HOLLOW FRAGMENT - FIGURES

As with all anime styled releases, one of the best things of being a fan of the franchise is the anticipation to all the toys coming out! For Sword Art Online, this is no different, especially when there are so many unique female characters to choose from!

Recently announced, the Opening theme "Ignite" as well as Ending theme "Startear" for the second season of the Sword Art Online anime - "Phantom Bullet" is now ready for Pre-orders!

"Ignite" is the 7th single by Eir Aoi, known for her memorable work for opening themes for franchises like Fate/Zero, Kill la Kill and even the first season of the Sword Art Online anime. 

"Startear" is the 6th single by Haruna Luna and the ending theme - fitting as she was also the one to do the second ending theme for the first season of Sword Art Online. With these credentials, it is no surprise that these two artists are taking up the role of OP+ED performers!

Insofar, scant details have been released regarding the contents of the Limited Edition as well as the Limited Pressing Anime Edition, so please feel free to use our Personal Agent and stay informed if you aren't making a pre-order already! We will all know soon as Season 2 will be available soon!

SWORD ART ONLINE: HOLLOW FRAGMENT (English + Chinese Sub)

ソードアート・オンライン -ホロウ・フラグメント

PlayStation®Vita [RPG] 

Confirmed by Bandai Namco:
DAY ONE EDITIONS WILL HAVE 3 IN-GAME DLC INCLUDED!


Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment's story will be separated into two chapters - the first chapter is a slightly modified version of the previous game, Infinity Moment, while the second is the brand new 'Hollow Area' chapter. The Hollow Area will reportedly include a brand new story involving the notorious player-killing guild "Laughing Coffin" and of course the new playable character Philia!

The gameplay will remain very similar to that in Infinity Moment, but expanding with the 'Burst Gauge' which allows continuous attacks, so long as you have the available burst energy to pull them off; and you won't be pulling them off alone in Hollow Fragment as Bandai Namco have added the ability to create your own non-playable character to fight alongside you! 

The title also takes full advantage of the PSVita by allowing player-formed raid teams (4 players max) which will be a major element of the 'Hollow Area' concept and design.
