Bandai Namco recently revealed that Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment is coming to North America this Summer as a digital download.
Though it won’t be seeing a retail release over here in North America, it appears as if you’ll at least be able to buy it digitally (saving me, Tyler, and plenty of others who’ve been excited about the title since the start the “import tax”).
If you haven’t heard of Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment, have you been sleeping through all these posts?
If you have, here’s the just; you play a character of your own customization (originally Kirito, from the anime) who takes on a virtual reality game called Sword Art Online. In this game, you’re dropped on the 76th level of the Tower of Aincrad and told that to escape the game you’ll need to reach the end of the 100th floor. Armed with some friends (or some AI friends if you can’t find some ad-hoc ones) you’ll attempt to muscle your way to the top of the tower – and the end of the game. Winning the game means “Kirito” (or whatever you’ve named your player) gets to go back to his real life.
