on May 27, 2015 8:23 AM

During a livestream on Nico Nico, Bandai Namco announced that both Sword Art Online: Lost Song and Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment will get a PS4 version.

The PS4 version of Hollow Fragment will be a “Director’s Cut” version with additional content, and will be renamed Sword Art Online RE: Hollow Fragment.

Sword Art Online: Lost Song was previously released in Japan for PS3 and PS Vita, while Hollow Fragment was released as a PS Vita exclusive, and was launched in the west as well last Summer.

Yet, that’s not all. Bandai Namco Europe immediately followed-up on Facebook, mentioning that the two games will come west, and more precisely in the Summer for RE: Hollow Fragment and in the fall for Lost Song. The latter will also be released on PS Vita, but will skip the PS3.

The western release of Sword Art Online RE: Hollow Fragment will be exclusively digital, while Lost Song will also get a retail release, at least in Europe.

Those that already purchased Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment for PS Vita will be able to transfer “some elements” of their save to the PS4 version, and all DLC will be available at launch.

In a following press release, Bandai Namco Europe released the pack shots for both games, and a batch of screenshots, also mentioning that the European release of Lost Song will have the original Japanese language with subtitles in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish.
