PlayStation®3 PlayStation®Vita [RPG]

As Bandai Namco revealed the development of Sword Art Online: Lost Song to the world, there was one question that many people asked: when will we be able to play an English version of the game? Worry no more, you can now pre-order SoA with English subtitles for both PS3 and PSV!

Sword Art Online: Lost Song will take place on Svart ALfheim, a mysterious new floating continent that comes bundled as a game update to the ALfheim Online virtual reality. Svart ALfheim will reportedly be a vast continent with a variety of zone types including plains, deserts, and tundra, amongst others. Each area can be freely explored on foot or by air.

The combat in Lost Song is now split between land and air battles, which will greatly affect the way players fight. Land battles will be the primary way to do battle in dungeons, but outside of them players can choose to switch between the two combat styles.

Air battles turn player focus to maneuverability, allowing them to make use of the multiple axes during aerial combat and the strategy they bring. The ability to autoattack is removed in air battles, but players can choose to have lock-on targeting deactivated which will allow them to attack any part of an enemy's body.

Lost Song also marks the first instance in a Sword Art Online title where players will be able to choose to play as someone other than Kirito! Whether or not this means players will be able to customize their own avatars is not yet known. Parties in Lost Song will also have a capacity of three characters, of which the player will be able to choose.

Sword Art Online: Lost Song will feature cooperative online multiplayer. Players will be able to choose their character and log in to a 16 person tavern lobby, where up to four players can form a party and embark on difficult quests that will present players with even greater rewards.
