Who doesn’t love a good cross-over? Fans of both franchises will be thrilled to know that Bandai Namco Entertainment is bringing over Accel World VS Sword Art Online to the US in Summer of 2017. So far, there is no official release date, but we do know that the game will be on the PlayStation Vita and the PlayStation 4.
About the game:
The worlds of SWORD ART ONLINE and ACCEL WORLD have begun to merge! In the midst of the chaos, the strongest Burst Linkers from ACCEL WORLD and Alfheim Online Players from SWORD ART ONLINE must come together in a war of the worlds to challenge the Seven Kings of Pure Color and rescue a dear friend from the clutches of Personna Babel. This all-new original story comes from Reki Kawahara, the creator of both SWORD ART ONLINE and ACCEL WORLD, for an interdimensional adventure between two popular anime franchises.
Players will build out three-person teams with their favorite characters, all with unique special abilities, from both the SWORD ART ONLINE and ACCEL WORLD series. SWORD ART ONLINE characters will be able to utilize the fairy flight mechanic from ALfheim Online as well as magic, while ACCEL WORLD characters will have access to Acceleration and special techniques. By mixing and matching characters from both worlds, players will be able to create an unstoppable team as they take on an epic action role-playing game adventure. Players will also be able to team up with three other friends to battle rivals in fierce online multiplayer modes.
