Sword Art Online RE: Hallow Fragment Launches In The Americas

BANDAI NAMCO has announced that Sword Art Online Re: Hallow Fragment, which features original stories based on the light novel and anime Sword Art Online, has launched in the Americas through the PlayStation Network for PlayStation 4.

Sword Art Online RE: Hollow Fragment was one of 2014's best-selling PlayStation Vita titles and follows the simulated VRMMORPG gameplay from the Sword Art Online storylines. Players will take on the role of Kirito, the main character in Sword Art Online, and fight through the different levels of Aincrad to break free from being locked within the virtual game world. As Kirito, players will interact with over a hundred characters, including new characters and series favorites that fight alongside Kirito throughout the adventure.

Sword Art Online RE: Hallow Fragment will also provide players with enhanced localization, online play, additional bosses, and more! Players with saved data from the PlayStation Vita version of the game will be able to transfer some items from that game to the PlayStation 4. There will also be DLC from the PlayStation Vita title that will be unlockable on the PlayStation 4 at a later date.

"We are excited to be able to bring Sword Art Online RE: Hollow Fragment to our PlayStation 4 fans. Featuring all of the content packed into last year's PlayStation Vita game,Sword Art Online RE: Hollow Fragment is sure to keep fans busy for months to come," said Eric Hartness, Vice President of Marketing for BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. "As the Sword Art Online light novels and anime continue to take the world by storm, we are delighted to be able to include the franchise in our roster of fantastic anime games."

Sword Art Online RE: Hollow Fragment for the PlayStation 4 is available now through the PlayStation Network for $19.99. And starting today, Sword Art Online fans that pre-order Sword Art Online: Lost Song, which is scheduled for release later this fall, will receive a digital copy of Sword Art Online RE: Hollow Fragment at no extra cost.
