Longtime readers of Push Square will know that we actually quite enjoy the Sword Art Online games. Sure, they're far from perfect, but they're kind of like fast food in action RPG form; cheap looking and perhaps a little unhealthy, but easy to get into and surprisingly addictive.

And this trend looks set to continue with Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris, although judging by the visuals, it does seem as though this next entry has been given a bigger budget. Anyway, the awkwardly named game has received a decent amount of gameplay footage courtesy of Japanese publication Dengeki PlayStation, which we've included above. The gameplay starts at 44 minutes into the video, and lasts around 10 minutes.

The footage features some casual exploration as well as a quick look at combat. All in all, it seems to be shaping up pretty well. The full release doesn't have a launch window yet, but hopefully it turns out to be the best Sword Art Online game to date.
