Bandai Namco has recently released a tonne of new details for Accel World VS. Sword Art Online.

There are a lot of new details released so we’ll start with the switch system, during battle you can use a switch during an attack, doing so will switch control to another character without breaking the combo. In turn this will also greatly increase your damage output so using the switch ability during tough fights will be key.

Each of the characters in the game with have various special abilities to use in battle. The Sword Art Online characters will have access to “Sword Skills” whilst those from Accel World have “Special Moves” and “Incarnate Skills”. You can check out some of these abilities below.

Cygnus Onslaught – Kirito

A Sword Skill that slices two swords forming a cross.

Laser Lance – Silver Crow

An Incarnate Skill that fires a long range concentrated energy beam.

Shooting Star – Asuna

A Sword Skill that thrusts the sword with all the body’s strength.

Death by Barraging – Black Lotus

A Special Move that unleashes 100 kicks per second with the leg blade.

We also get a look at a couple of the stages you’ll be visiting in the game.
