Bandai Namco Entertainment America and Europe began streaming a trailer for its Accel World VS Sword Art Online PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita game on Monday. The trailer reveals that the game will launch on July 7 in North America and Europe.
The North American digital launch edition will include DLC for Yuna and Sachi as playable characters, and Ordinal Scale, Gun Gale Online avatar, Fairy Dance avatar, and Knights of the Blood Oath costumes. In Europe, Sachi and most of the DLC costumes will be preorder bonuses, though Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe has not yet announced the Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale pack (playable Yuna and Ordinal Scale costumes).
The game will be digital-only on both systems and will have Japanese audio with English, Spanish, and French subtitles.
Bandai Namco Entertainment describes the game's story:
Svart Alfheim and the Accelerated World have begun to merge. In the midst of the chaos, Yui has gone missing. Kirito must challenge the Seven Kings of pure color from the Accelerated World to gain access to her location. Players from both groups come together in a war of the worlds where the strongest Burst Linkers and ALO Players are on a mission to save Yui from the hands of Personna Babel.
The game shipped in Japan on March 16. The base game features 38 playable characters, and a total of 40 playable characters are available with the Yuna and Sachi pre-order bonuses. In Japan, the Season Pass offers a total of 44 playable characters.
