Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment for the PS vita will be finally on its way to the U.S. this Summer(wasn’t too hard as the games text was already in English for the Chinese market). It will be releasing as a digital only game though, so we won’t be able to purchase any special editions like the Japanese market will have. The 9,980-yen (U.S. $100) limited edition will include packaging with exclusive artwork by novel illustrator abec, a soundtrack CD, a code to unlock an in-game outfit, a special contents Blu-ray Disc, several mini clear posters, with special packaging and cases.
That being said Bandai Namco isn’t letting us down, while we may be only getting a digital version of the game they have sweetened the deal by also including an HD version of the previous PSP game, Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment.
Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment and Infinity Moment are Action RPG games based upon a Japanese light novel and anime series. The series takes place in the near-future and focuses on various virtual reality MMORPG worlds. If you have not already read or seen the series I highly recommend it as it is one of my favorites.
Famitsu awarded the game a score of 8/8/8/8 [32/40] (40 is the highest score possible)
I am super excited for the game as I love SAO! How about you?
