2nd Accel World Game Explained by Ash Roller in New Video
posted on by Sarah Nelkin
Namco Bandai Games began streaming the second web-exclusive promotional video for the Accel World: Kasoku no Chōten (Accel World: The Peak of Acceleration) video game on Friday. In the 129-second video, the character Ash Roller (as voiced by Kenichi Suzumura) introduces new features to the game.
Players can adjust and balance their fighting capabilities on four attributes (accuracy, defense, offense, and evasion). Players are also able to change the battle speed, making the speed of fights go quicker or slower.
A bonus hot spring anime Blu-ray Disc will come with the limited-edition PlayStation 3 version of Kasoku no Chōten, while the anime will be on a DVD in the limited edition PlayStation Portable version of the game. Bandai Namco Games will include a special booklet in both versions when they ship on January 31, 2013 for 7,330 yen (about US$91) and 6,280 yen (US$78), respectively.
Reki Kawahara, the author of the original light novel series that inspired the recent television anime, is serving as the chief supervisor of the Kasoku no Chōten game's scenario. The player assumes the role of the protagonist Haruyuki as he enjoys school life and undergoes Duels in the virtual "Accel World" immediately after the events in the television anime.
The first Accel World game, Accel World: Ginyoku no Kakusei, also shipped on September 13 in a dual game/anime release format. Viz Media streamed the television anime in North America as it aired in Japan.
