The "Dengeki Game Festival 2015 & Dengeki Bunko Spring Festival 2015 & Dengeki Comic Festival 2015" event announced on Sunday that the PlayStation 3/PS Vita game Sword Art Online: Lost Song and the PlayStation 4/PS Vita game God Eater 2: Rage Burst will hold a collaborative campaign.
The first part of the campaign is a set of DLC costumes in both games. Dengeki PlayStation magazine will publish the advance download serial code for Kirito and Sinon costumes in God Eater 2: Rage Burst on April 9. The magazine will then publish the serial code for Julius and Alisa costumes in Sword Art Online: Lost Song on April 23.
The second part of the campaign is a clear file folder featuring characters from both games. While supplies last, stores throughout Japan will start offering the file folder to buyers of either game on March 26.
Finally, the PS Store will offer special "Spring Encounter Campaign" themes for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita. Dengeki posted images of the themes and more from the campaign.
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.
