Viz Media confirmed with Anime News Network last week that its master licensee rights for Accel World includes the rights to release the series on home video. Viz Media also holds the rights to sublicense the two video game spinoffs.
Bandai Namco Games released Accel World: Ginyoku no Kakusei for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable in Japan in September, followed by Accel World: Kasoku no Chōten in January. Both games bundled an Accel World original video anime.
Viz Media announced earlier this month that it holds the rights to videogram, television, online distribution, and all merchandising licensing for the series.
Viz Media premiered the Accel World English dub on the company's Neon Alley streaming service on April 19. The series premiered in Japan last year and Viz streamed the series with English subtitles on its website as it aired in Japan.
