Sword Art Online: Lost Song Game's 3rd TV Ad Previews New Characters

posted on by Sarah Nelkin
PS Vita/PS3 game ships in Japan on March 26 with new characters Seven, Rain, Sumeragi

The official website for Bandai Namco Games' Sword Art Online: Lost Song PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita game began streaming the game's third television commercial on Tuesday.

Kirito: The newest Sword Art Online game!
Rain: I wonder why I get found out?
Text: We despised
Sumeragi: It's not something you should concern yourself with.
Seven: It's not like I'm doing anything bad!
Text: The song that wished for peace for all
Kirito: This is a tough one!
Kirito: Sword Art Online: Lost Song.

The commercial introduces three new characters being introduced in the game:

Rain, a girl who hides honed battle skills behind her lovely expression. She's chasing around Kirito and his friends for some reason. A girl with many mysteries. Voiced by Miyu Takagi (Wake Up, Girls!)

Seven, a girl who sports a young look within the game, but is in fact a genius Russian scientist. She is researching virtual reality, and is considered "the light" compared to Akihiko Kayaba. She is the guild leader of "Shamrock," and her appearance is similar to that of her real life one. Seven is voiced by Hisako Kanemoto (Sailor Moon Crystal, Gingitsune).

Sumeragi, the active leader of the guild "Shamrock," and the knight who protects Seven. He is extremely powerful. Sumeragi is voiced by Ryōta Takeuchi (Sengoku Musou, High School DxD New).

Kadokawa's Dengeki PlayStation magazine confirmed in November that Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment's Philia (voiced by Yui Ishikawa) will appear in the game. Philia first appeared in the Hollow Area of the earlier Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment game that shipped earlier this year.

Bandai Namco Games is localizing the game in English and Chinese for Asian markets. Bandai Namco Games' Yōsuke Futami said that Lost Song's English translation will be better than Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment.

Sword Art Online: Lost Song's PlayStation 3 version will cost 7,120 yen (about US$66), and the PlayStation Vita version will cost 6,170 yen (US$57). A limited edition that includes box art by abec, an original soundtrack CD, a Blu-ray Disc with special content, a mini-clear poster, and a special booklet will retail at 9,980 yen (US$92). The game will ship in Japan on March 26.

Bandai Namco Games unveiled the game's development at the 2014 Tokyo Game Show stage event on September 19. Reki Kawahara's Sword Art Online light novel series already inspired the Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment and Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment games for the PlayStation Vita system. The light novels also inspired two television anime series.
