Sword Art Online: Last Recollection is expanding both its narrative and its gameplay with the release of a new trailer!
Bandai Namco's description of Sword Art Online: Last Recollection:
SWORD ART ONLINE LAST RECOLLECTION follows beloved series protagonist Kirito and his friends as they embark on a new adventure that’s distinct from the War of Underworld story arc from the original novel and anime series. The game features new battles with evolved high-speed combat and cooperative gameplay for up to four players. As the adventure begins, our heroes journey to the Underworld, where rising tensions between the Human Realm and Dark Territory is brewing, threatening to plunge the virtual world of humans and AIs into war. Unbeknownst to our heroes, these developments are the final stages of the “Alicization Project,” a secret experiment carried out by humans in the real world to instigate war in the virtual world to force the evolution of AI through brutal warfare. We join Kirito and his allies as they fight to resist the impending tragedy of war.
