Viz Media will have an exclusive screening of the film at Anime Expo in July. The company also licensed the two Accel World OVAs that were bundled with the Accel World: Ginyoku no Kakusei and Accel World: Kasoku no Chōten PS3/PSP games.

The film opened in Japan on July 2016 ranked #9 in its opening weekend.

Original light novel series author Reki Kawahara (Sword Art Online) wrote the story for the film. The staff that returned from the television anime included:

  • Original Creator: Reki Kawahara
  • Original Novel Illustrations: HIMA
  • Director: Masakazu Obara
  • Character Design/Animation Director: Yukiko Aikei
  • Duel Avatar Design/Action Director: Yousuke Kabashima
  • Animation Production: Sunrise

Reki Kawahara's Accel World light novel series launched in 2009, and Kadokawa published the 22nd volume last November. Yen Press is publishing the light novel series in English, and it shipped the 13th volume on March 20. The novels inspired a 24-episode television anime that premiered in 2012, and Viz Media streamed the series on Hulu as it aired in Japan. Viz Media released the series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in 2013. The novels also inspired a manga by Hiroyuki Aigamo that launched in Kadokawa's Dengeki Bunko Magazine in 2010, and ended last June. Yen Press published the manga's seventh volume in March 2017.

The novels inspired two other manga: Akariryuryuu's Axel World and Ayato Sasakura's Accel World / Dural: Magisa Garden, the latter of which ended last June.
