PS4/Xbox One/PC game ships in February in Japan, West

Bandai Namco Entertainment began streaming on Friday a commercial for the Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet game for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.

The game will launch in Japan on February 8. It will also launch in the West on February 23.

Bandai Namco Entertainment began streaming a trailer highlighting customization and game modes in November. Bandai Namco Entertainment America began streaming a feature and story trailer previewing the AI support character ArFA-sys AI and the new area SBC Flügel in December.

People who pre-order the game will receive the Silver Assault Gun and Asuna and Kirito SAO avatar costumes. The Phantom Edition of the game will bundle figurines of Kirito and Sinon with exclusive costumes available through the Bandai Namco Official Store.

Dimps is developing the game. The game will be a third-person shooter role-playing game based in the fictional Gun Gale Online virtual-reality massively multiple online role-playing game. The fictional game featured in the Sword Art Online II television anime series, and Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet will be the franchise's first game based in Gun Gale Online. The release will also be the game series' first title for Xbox One and PC.

Original light novel creator Reki Kawahara is supervising the game's original story. Players' choices and interaction will determine the course of the story. Players will create skills and abilities and utilize new weapons. Characters from the previous Sword Art Online novels, anime, and games will appear in the game, including Yuuki and Strea. The characters Llenn and Pitohui from the Sword Art Online Alternative Gun Gale Online light novel series will also appear in the game.

Unlike previous games, the action game focuses on gun battles. The game will feature realistic visuals that utilize Unreal Engine 4. Some bosses will require friends in co-op mode to defeat, and players will also be able to face off in four-versus-four battles.
