posted on by Karen Ressler
Game slated for Western release this summer

Bandai Namco Games Europe began streaming its E3 English-subtitled trailer for the Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment PlayStation Vita game on Tuesday.

Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment shipped for the PlayStation Vita in Japan in April, and a North American and European release is scheduled to be available for download on the PlayStation Network this summer. A large update, titled The Successor to Splendor, is slated for July 10 in Japan.

By exploring the 76 cities in Aincrad, players can pick up new friends and party members for their adventures. Kirito can also deepen his relationship with his partners by hanging out with them in the cities, going out on dates, or holding hands. The game will include characters Asuna (Haruka Tomatsu), Lisbeth (Ayahi Takagaki), Silica (Rina Hidaka), Yui (Kanae Itō), Leafa (Ayana Taketatsu), Shinon (Miyuki Sawashiro), Strea (Sachika Misawa), Sachi (Saori Hayami), Kibaou (Tomokazu Seki), and Argo (Shiori Izawa). A new, original character named Philia (Yui Ishikawa) will play an integral part in the game's plot.

In the game's special "adventure mode," players have the option to create their own characters and play with up to eight other people online to go on quests in the Hollow Area. The game also has a dating element where players can go on dates that could possibly end with pillow talk.
