Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization’s New Screenshots Show Fanservice Dating and More on Dengeki

on June 8, 2016 4:35 PM

Sword Art Online games have basically always been waifu simulators, which is pretty appropriate to the original series. That’s why you probably won’t be too surprised to learn that dating the various heroines will be a major mechanic in the upcoming Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization for PS4 and PS Vita.

Probably you’ll be even less surprised to know that a lot of the events included in those dates will veer a bit on the fanservice side. Looks like our resident playboy Kirito is gonna have a hell of a time.

In the latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation there were quite a few screenshots showing just that (including the dating interface), on top of the return of Egil and Klein, some spiffy armor that we’ll be able to equip, and a look at a boss and a few enemies.

You can check them all out below, keeping in mind that you’re looking at magazine scans, so quality won’t be the best. The game will come this fall in North America and Europe, following an October 27th release in Japan.
