Producer Yosuke Futami has confirmed that a sequel to Hollow Fragment is in the planning stages.
During a recent interview with producer Yosuke Futami and Sword Art Online author Reki Kawahara, Famitsu brought up Futami’s previous statement that if Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment sells more than the previous game (Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment for PSP), a sequel for the Vita game would be possible.
Now that Hollow Fragment has outsold the PSP game (without even hitting Western shores yet), Futami noted;
“I’m thinking about setting up plans for the sequel.”
While that’s not exactly a treasure trove of information, it’s good to know that Futami is true to his word.
We’ll have more on a Sword Art Online sequel as it releases, but for now we’re still waiting on Hollow Fragment – due out August 19th in North America and August 20th in Europe.
