Bandai Namco Entertainment America began streaming on Sunday a new English-subtitled trailer for its Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris game for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. The trailer introduces the new character Medina Orthinanos. Miho Okasaki (That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime) provides Medina's voice.

The game's official website shared a new key visual:

The game's official website describes Medina as the daughter of the ninth generation head of the Orthinanos family. Although she is usually calm, she becomes more belligerent in battle. In order to clear the dishonor of her family name, she goes on a mission to become stronger.

Bandai Namco Entertainment America describes the game, which will be the first in which "players will be able to faithfully follow the events of the anime series":

Play as series protagonist, Kirito, and become immersed in the “Underworld,” a mysterious virtual world set in the anime series' Alicization arc. Featuring epic battles, stunning JRPG visuals, and an expansive world to explore; Kirito's journey through the latest Sword Art Online game is ready to begin.

Following the events of the Sword Art Online: Alicization anime series, Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris finds Kirito in a mysterious but familiar virtual world, “Underworld,” where A.I.s behave like humans. As players take control of Kirito, they will relive heart-pounding scenes from the series through intense combat. Players will also encounter fan favorite characters including Eugeo, Alice, Administrator, and many more. A wide world awaits Kirito and his friends in this exciting adaptation to the Sword Art Online: Alicization series.

Sword Art Online: Alicization premiered in Japan in October 2018 and is streaming on Crunchyroll, Hulu, and FunimationNow. The series is adapting the entire "Alicization Arc" of Reki Kawahara's original novels and will air for four cours, or four quarters of a year. The first two cours aired from October to March, and the second two cours, titled Sword Art Online: Alicization - War of Underworld, will premiere in October.
