Sword Art Online -Lost Song- action RPG slated for 2015

Bandai Namco began streaming the promotional video for Sword Art Online -Lost Song-, the third major game in the franchise. Slated for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita in 2015, this action role-playing game will tell an original story set in the fictional ALfheim Online game. ALfheim Online appears in the second arc of the Sword Art Online light novel series.
