During the fall event for Dengeki Bunko, a new trailer for the upcoming SAO movie, Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale, was shown, and it introduces us to some of the film’s newest characters. This is the English version of that said trailer
Seems like the nightmare from the original death game called Sword Art Online has come to haunt the new MMORPG, Ordinal Scale. A new poster visual has also been revealed, and it features the new characters, Eiji, Dr. Shigemura, and Ordinal Scale’s idol, Yuna.
Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale will be screened in 1,000 theaters across the globe.
The film will feature an original story which will be set in a brand new game called “Ordinal Scale,” which uses a new augmented reality device known as “Augma.” According to the film’s official website, AR (Augmented Reality) Type Information Terminal “Augma” is a next-generation, wearable multi-device that looks like a pair of small headphones. In terms of size and portability, it is far superior to the existing VR machine “Amusphere.” Augma doesn’t have a full-dive function, however, its AR function is greatly enhanced to compensate for it. It can transmit visual, audio and tactual sensation data to players while they are awake, thus enabling the users to enjoy fitness and health management like a game.
