Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris has a name that we simply never want to type again, but sadly that's not an option when we're covering a newly announced title. All we've got to go on right now is the trailer embedded above, and confirmation that the game will follow the most recent season of the Sword Art Online anime. So yes, that means you're playing as series protagonist Kirito, and not a custom-made character like in previous Sword Art Online games.
Alicization Lycoris will feature "new gameplay experiences" according to Bandai Namco's press release, and going by the video, it kind of looks like a full-on action game? Maybe even a bit open world? We'll no doubt learn more over the coming weeks.
