Asuna Wake-Up App Now Available Internationally
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
English-speaking fans of Sword Art Online will now be able to start off their day with the voice of Haruka Tomatsu, who plays Asuna. Sony Music Communications Inc. is releasing the smartphone app Wake Me Up Asuna, which consists of a selection of voice samples from the swordswoman.
The English version of the app includes translated menus, subtitles, and English-voice compatibility so the app now responds to English commands. The Japanese version was originally released in June.
The app will tell you the local weather, your fortune for the day, and any important reminders. Sleepy? Asuna will even tell you a "boring" bedtime story to send you off to dreamland. Asuna as multiple costumes, including Knights of the Blood uniform and a yellow sweater with more to be released in the future.
The app itself is free but users have to pay for the English voice recognition and subtitles.
