Sword Art Online RE: Hollow Fragment has Launched


It was announced today by Bandai Namco that Sword Art Online RE: Hollow Fragment has launched in the Americas, exclusively for the Playstation Network on the Playstation 4. Originally released for the Playstation Vita, this HD remastered title will include online play, enhanced localization, additional boss battles and more.

Based on the hit light novel and anime series Sword Art Online, players will be able to take control of the series’ main character, Kirito, as they fight their way through Aincrad, the universe in which Kirito and his fellow players are trapped in. As Kirito, players are able to interact with other characters from the show, as well as some fresh faces, new for the game. As an added bonus, players with the PSVita version will be able to transfer select items to the PS4 version, including DLC that will be available at a later date.

“We are excited to be able to bring Sword Art Online RE: Hollow Fragment to our PlayStation 4 fans. Featuring all of the content packed into last year’s PlayStation Vita game, Sword Art Online RE: Hollow Fragment is sure to keep fans busy for months to come,” Eric Hartness, Vice President of Marketing for BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. stated, “As the Sword Art Online light novels and anime continue to take the world by storm, we are delighted to be able to include the franchise in our roster of fantastic anime games.”
Sword Art Online RE: Hollow Fragment is available now for the Playstation Network for $19.99, Rated T for Teen by the ESRB. As an added bonus, anyone who pre-orders Sword Art Online: Lost Song, on the Playstation Network for $59.99, will receive a downloadable copy of RE: Hollow Fragment for free!
