Today Bandai Namco Entertainment sent in a press release with a large batch of screenshots of the upcoming third-person shooter/JRPG hybrid Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet.
First of all, we get to see the “Kirito Mode,” in which we’ll play as the well-known protagonist of the Sword Art Online series, facing antagonist Death Gun in the Bullet of Bullets tournament that appeared in the anime.
We also get to see the exploration of the Remnant Wasteland with our own custom hero, where we’ll be able to fight many different enemies with a large variety of weapons, including guns, sniper rifles, and swords.
The “Asuna’s Clothes Quest” feature will let us recover schematics for different outfits that we’ll then bring to Asuna herself so that she can manufacture them for us. Those special costumes aren’t available in the stores.
You can check out the screenshots below. If you want to see more, you can check out a previous gallery mostly focusing on the ArFA-Sys AI companion, a trailer in Japanese showcasing the multiplayer features, a recent trailer in English, another batch of screenshots featuring characters, another trailer alongside and character creation gameplay, one more trailer showing the custom hero and some more new members of the cast. On top of that, you should also watch some PS4 gameplay that yours truly recorded in Tokyo.
Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet will launch on February 23rd in both North America and Europe, for PS4, Xbox One and PC. This is just two weeks after the Japanese release date on February 8th.
