Sword Art Online Game to Have 3D Date Movie DVD

posted on by Jennifer Sherman
PSP RPG to ship in March 2013; limited edition to bundle 2 anime discs

The limited edition version of the Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment game for the PSP will bundle the "Together with Asuna Aincrad Date Edition" DVD. The animated disc will feature an original story from Kirito's perspective with "high precision" 3D character modeling.

The limited version will also include a "game special movie" CG anime DVD that ties in with the Aincrad story arc and game. A special box with art by abec, original game soundtrack CD, special booklet, and original custom PSP game theme will complete the limited edition set.

Bandai Namco Games has slated the "live-in-this-moment-with-you RPG" game for release in Japan on March 14, 2013. The regular and downloadable versions will cost 6,280 yen (about US$79), while the limited edition will retail at 9,980 yen (US$125).

Based on Reki Kawahara's Sword Art Online light novel series, the game's new story revolves around a boy named Kazuto "Kirito" Kirigaya. He enters a virtual-reality, massively multi-player online (MMO) world called "Sword Art Online." There is no escape from this world unless the player clears the game, but "game over" means the death of the player.

The game's second promotional video began streaming earlier this month.
