Namco Bandai Games began streaming the fifth web-exclusive promotional video on Friday for the Accel World: Kasoku no Chōten (Accel World: The Peak of Acceleration) video game. In the video, Kuroyukihime (voiced by Sachika Misawa) narrates the "Teach us! Kuroyukihime-sempai" instructional video. Takumu Mayuzumi (voiced by Shintarō Asanuma) and Ash Roller (Kenichi Suzumura), who had narrated the previous four instructional videos.
Players can adjust and balance their fighting capabilities on four attributes (accuracy, defense, offense, and evasion). The Spirit system acts like the standard health bar in other games. Finally, characters band together to form Legions to control territory.
A bonus hot spring anime Blu-ray Disc will ship 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. Namco Bandai Games will include a special booklet in both versions when they ship on January 31 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.
