For the first time, the Sword Art Online video game series finally takes us to the world of Gun Gale Online (GGO). And now, this week’s issue of Dengeki PlayStation magazine has revealed new details about the upcoming Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet game.
It reveals that Strea, an original character from previous SAO games, will also be appearing in this one, alongside the ever-lovable Yuuki. The issue also reveals the character designs for Llenn and Pitohui, the two main characters from the Sword Art Online spin-off novel, Sword Art Online Alternative Gun Gale Online by Kino’s Journey author, Keiichi Sigsawa. They will also be appearing in the spin-off’s own anime adaptation, which was previously announced during the Dengeki Fall Festival.
The magazine also reveals other facets of the game, including Ultimate Fiber Gun wire action, player-versus-player tactics, four-person party play, and more. It also teases some of the CGs that fans might expect, and these include some bath scenes, the girls in bikinis, as well as other predicaments.
So from the gameplay, it seems like the game will be a 3rd person shooter. And yes, we can play as TRAP KIRITO! However, unlike the anime, the other SAO characters like Asuna, Leafa, and Silica also get to play GGO, along with Sinon of course. Here’s how they describe the game:
Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet brings an exciting twist to the popular action RPG series by adding third-person shooter elements into the game, forming a unique hybrid shooter/RPG/action title that balances gun and sword play with skill and gadget combat to create a new dynamic experience. Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet will feature an engrossing, original story supervised by Sword Art Online creator Reki Kawahara, that takes players into the world of “Gun Gale Online,” from the popular Sword Art Online II season of the series. Players will be able to dive right into the immersive landscape developed by Dimps, and enjoy robust environments and textures powered by Unreal Engine 4. Using agile double jumps, air dashes, wall-to-wall repelling, and quick weapon swapping, players will engage in brisk platforming and shooting gameplay as they embark on epic adventures. Rounding out the package, full multiplayer cooperative and competitive modes will let two to eight players collaborate and compete against one another online.
Bandai Namco Games will be releasing the Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet for the PlayStation 4, Xbox ONE, and PC via STEAM. Its Japanese release will be on February 8, so expect its Southeast Asian, North American, and European releases to come a bit later.
