Today Bandai Namco released a brand new trailer of its upcoming third-person shooter-meets-JRPG Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet.

The trailer introduces one of the main features in the game, which is the ability to create a custom hero (or heroine) that will be the protagonist of the story instead of the usual Kirito

We also get a look at the inevitable new waifus that will appear in the story. Kureha is the hero’s stereotypical childhood friends, because you can’t have a Sword Art Online anything without every anime trope ever.

Zeliska is a mysterious and beautiful player of which we know basically nothing (she’s mysterious, after all), while ArFA-Sys is an AI awakened by the hero that basically serves as his in-game partner.

You can check the trailer out below, and if you want to see more, you can also enjoy some raw PS4 gameplay recorded a few days ago by yours truly, on top of the first traileranother gameplay video, and a batch of screenshots.

Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet will release worldwide for PS4, Xbox One and PC in early 2018.
