Accel World: Ginyoku no Kakusei Game's 1st Promo Video Streamed

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
PSP/PS3 game based on Reki Kawahara's light novels ships on September 13

Namco Bandai Games began streaming the first promotional video for the Accel World: Ginyoku no Kakusei video game on Sunday. The 64-second video features the character Ash Roller introducing the game's battle system. The video is the first in a series of videos that will count down to the game's release on September 13.

There will be two versions of this game based on Reki Kawahara's original science-fiction light novel series: one for the PlayStation 3 system, and another for the PSP.

The Accel World television series premiered in April, and Viz Media is streaming the series as it airs.

The "future teen" story of Accel World revolves around a bullied middle school boy named Haruyuki. One autumn day in 2046, he has an encounter with Kuroyukihime, the prettiest girl in his school, that changes his life. Through a mysterious piece of software from Kuroyukihime, Haruyuki learns of the existence of the virtual "Accel World." In that moment, the lowest of the "school caste" becomes "Burst Linker," a knight defending a princess.
