“SWORD ART ONLINE Alicization Lycoris will feature new gameplay experiences from those seen in previous SAO titles, ensuring the game will enchant existing fans as well as new comers. Lycoris is a word borrowed from the botanic vocabulary, the Lycoris Radiata. It’s a beautiful flower that symbolises loss, separation, reunion and passion, something perfectly fitting of the story of the Alicization Arc!”
– Yosuke Futami, Producer, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc
SWORD ART ONLINE Alicization Lycoris will be available on PlayStation®4, XBox ONE and PC via STEAM®.
