Bandai Namco has let loose some new release details for their quickly approaching release of Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization, topping it off with one of their signature trailers.

That’s right folks, Hollow Realization is almost here – launching just three weeks from now in Japan, and falling right under five weeks away in the West! As we approach those release date however, some things need to be ironed out… and the first of those things happens to be some additional content release details for Japan.

We already knew when, and some of how the game would be making its way to Japan; but now we also have some more specific details for those wanting more than the base experience. For instance, we now know that the season pass will cost 2,500 yen – and that the individual trio of episodes the pass nets you will be 1000 yen each otherwise. We’ve also learned that you can now pre-order the premium digital edition on the Japanese PSN. Good to know!

Moving on, we’ve got news on save data bonuses – which happen to be available for both previous Sword Art Online games to release on the system. As for what they get you, it looks like the presence of Hollow Fragment save data will net you a small sword called “Wind Foil,” while Lost Song save data will net you a “Lost Song” head accessory. Sweet deal, right?

Feeling like you need a dose of Sword Art Online while you wait? Check out a brand new trailer, just itching to tide you over;

Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization is due out in Japan on October 27th, and in the West on November 8th.

    I’m so torn about these Vita/PS4 games. I have hollow fragment and Lost Song on the Vita and it’s nice to be able to play them anywhere, still the PS4 versions will always look and play a little bit better than the vita versions, so it’s a tough choice. Might end up getting both….
