And that’s all it took to ignite fanboys’ fiery anticipation. This is, after all, the ONLY hint of the series continuing. There was plenty of speculation, but nothing concrete until that teaser. Fans have been patiently waiting for more news since.
Bandai Namco and Dimps have announced Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC to launch worldwide in early 2018.
Play as the protagonist, battle against opponents using new weapons and further customize gameplay by creating skills and abilities. Interact with characters from the Sword Art Online original novels, anime and previous games as you navigate a world that is vastly personalized and visually enhanced.
