Bandai Namco announced at the Dengeki Game Festival that two characters will be headed to games from the “Alicization Arc” in the anime.
The characters being added are Alice Synthesis Thirty who will be voiced by Ai Kayano, and Eugeo who will be voiced by Nobunaga Shimazaki.
The characters will be added to 4 games in total, but Vita fans can look forward to the duo appearing in Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization as part of the third DLC pack, and in Accel World VS. Sword Art Online as part of DLC “Castaway from a Different World”.
You can check out a trailer for the newcomers below.
In addition to the new characters joining the fray, Bandai Namco also announced their plans for DLC for the two games.
Accel World VS. Sword Art Online players can look forward to another character DLC in the form of Persona Vabel which will be available this summer. You can see a trailer for Persona Vabel below.
For Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization players we have some artwork for the upcoming DLC chapters and an overview for “Chapter 1: Explorer of Illusory Mists”.
In Chapter 1, Kirito and friends discover a new stage in Aincrad. Whilst fighting enemies in this new area a mysterious, hood wearing character appears. It is unclear if he is friend or foe however. The DLC will also introduce Heroine Quests which will feature Kirito and one of the Heroines partaking in a quest in which you can earn a new high rank skill.
What do you make of the DLC plans for the Sword Art Online games? Looking forward to the new characters? Let us know in the comments below.
Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization is out now for PS4 and PS Vita and Accel World VS. Sword Art Online is set to release this summer in North America and Europe. Stay tuned to The Vita Lounge for more information as we get it.
