A longer version of the second trailer for the Sword Art Online: Hollow Realisation game is now streaming from Bandai Namco’s official YouTube channel. In amongst some beautiful visuals, the video reveals that the game will be out in Japan on October 27th, after it was previously confirmed that Japan and the west would both get the franchise’s fourth RPG in the fall.
The PlayStation 4 and PS Vita releases will both come in regular and limited editions. Everyone who buys a limited edition on either console will be treated with a bundle including a soundtrack CD and special contents Blu-ray disc in a separate package, a ‘Dengeki nerve Gear vol. 4’ pamphlet and mini clear posters. An extra perk of buying this edition is the special box art illustrated by abec.
The game’s official website has also unveiled new character visuals for Philia and Strea, after March’s reveal of the original character Premiere. Voiced by Yuiko Tatsumi, who also played The Irregular at Magic High School’s Shizuku Kitayama, she is described as “A mysterious girl. Does she have any interests? Expressionless, she stares fixedly at Kirito from afar and leaves a message for Kirito and his friends.”
We in the Americas and Europe will get to figure Premiere out for ourselves when the game’s as yet unspecified fall western release date rolls around. Our edition of Hollow Realisation will include subtitles for English, French, German, Italian and Spanish-speaking audiences.
Update: Just today, Bandai Namco have released an English-subtitled version of the above story trailer first posted on Monday. At the start of the video, you can also find links to the same trailer subbed in German, French, Italian and Spanish.
