Vita Exclusive Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment Looks to Be a Genuine JRPG
Posted by Kell Andersen
Bandai Namco has recently released a new gameplay trailer for an upcoming PlayStation Vita exclusive based on the anime series Sword Art Online. The game's official name is Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment, but we think that a more befitting moniker would be JRPG: The Japanese Role Playing Game, as the title seems to play host to all of the genre trappings and quirks that we've come to love. Thankfully, the video does a very good job of demonstrating this, showing off a variety of strategically serpentine battle scenarios, as well as some gorgeously animated cut scenes.
With that said, it's incredibly unlikely that we'll ever see this game on Western shores, but that doesn't mean that we can't stare at the gameplay with mouths agape, and hope for the best. Would you be willing to import this jaunty JRPG, or do you think that it looks too hollow? Scream and shout in the comments section below.
