The latest mobile RPG based on the popular Sword Art Online anime, Sword Art Online: Alicization Rising Steel has launched in the app stores ahead of its expected December release date.
Published by Bandai Namco Entertainment, the game is based on the Alicization arc of the anime/light novel where Kirito is trapped in another VR world called the Underworld. There he met Eugeo and the rest of the inhabitants of the Underworld. Together they’ll venture forth and uncover the reason why they’re trapped in this world, uncover the lingering memories that Kirito keeps dreaming about, and discover just who is this Asuna he keeps having flashbacks about.
SAO Rising Steel’s gameplay will follow closely to traditional JRPG with turn-based combat. Players can form a team of three comprised of fan-favorite characters from the series not just from the Alicization art from Aincrad, Alfheim, and Gun Gale as well. Characters can perform a plethora of flashy attacks and skills as seen in the anime. Additionally, each character has their own tag team combo with another character.
