posted on by Egan Loo
Bandai Namco Games began streaming the fourth promotional video and the Yūki web commercial for the PlayStation 3/PlayStation Vita game Sword Art Online: Lost Song on Monday. The company just announced on Sunday that Yūki will be a playable character in the game.
The promotional video introduces Rain and Seven, two girls who play a large part in the game's plot. In the game's battle system, it is possible to customize and strengthen weapons. Each character has their own special weapon. Players can also make their own character to use in both single and multi-player mode.
Bandai Namco Games is localizing the game in English and Chinese for Asian markets. Bandai Namco Games' Yosuke 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.
