Time to learn more about the game. Bandai Namco

The official release of Sword Art Online Last Recollection is still months away. But the good news is that we're getting more information on what to expect from it.

Bandai Namco released a gameplay trailer which you can watch below:

If you didn't have time to watch the video, it gives us a glimpse of the character customization, exploration, and preview of the inventory and skills in-game. We also get a look at the combat system where players get to choose from a wide range of weapons, promoting diversity.

During battle, players can switch characters and use Command Mode to give orders to their party members to activate skills or attack. Plus, they can also customize the skill palette of each character to suit their playstyle.

Sword Art Online Last Recollection serves as the culmination of the alternate storyline that started back in 2013 through Sword Art Online Infinity Moment. In the original storyline, Kirito and his friends were able to log out of Sword Art Online after Heathcliff was defeated. However, for Infinity Moment, a glitch had occurred that made them stay in the game world. Not only that, individuals from other VRMMORPGs got sucked in SAO as well.

Sword Art Online Last Recollection is taken from the War of Underworld arc of the original novel and anime series but goes to a different turn and deviates from the canon.

The heroes now journey to the Underworld where there has been an increasing tension between the Human Realm and Dark Territory. If not addressed, this tension could lead to a war between humans and AI. What the heroes don't know is that all these are part of the final stage called "Alicization Project." This is a secret experiment being done by humans in the real world to make sure that war happens in the virtual world and in turn, force an AI evolution.

Game features include:

  • A New, Original Storyline
    • The game explores what would have happened if Eugeo hadn't met his tragic end in The War of the Underworld.
  • A New Battle System
    • Experience an exciting and elevated battle system with friends against familiar foes from the Sword Art Online series.

Sword Art Online Last Recollection is coming out October 6 on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
