Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment story detailed

Aincrad's first 75 floors plagued by system errors.

Namco Bandai’s upcoming PSP conversion of Sword Art Online follows a story different from the newly launched anime.

In the game version, a mysterious system error occurs in Aincrad, the 100-floor world of the in-game MMO ‘Sword Art Online’. The game becomes realized on the 75th floor of Aincrad and beyond. Players are tasked with climbing the next 25 stories. Just like the anime, there are bosses on each floor, but there are also mobs over level 90. It is unclear at what level players start the game.

You’ll play as Kirito, the main character of the anime, who can be equipped with a number of weapons, including: a one-handed sword, dual swords, dual axes, a dagger, or a rapier. Each weapon will have its own Sword Skills. In addition to skills which appeared in the anime, there will also be skills outside battle. New, unique skills will appear by continuing the “Sword Arts School.”

Thanks, Re: Gigen.

    I wish there really was an MMO like Sword Art Online in the near future…minus the fatal logout, of course.

      Same way I feel about a true .hack MMO. All I can say is… Keep dreaming, lol.

      Here’s what you can do:

      1) Get a PSP.
      2) Import the game.
      3) Hack your PSP.
      4) Hope that someone makes an English patch.
      5) Install said English patch.

      Someone’s currently working on an English patch of Digimon World Re: Digitize: http://gbatemp.net/topic/330975-digimon-world-redigitize-anyone-making-translation/

      I’m sure if there’s enough interest, someone will take on Sword Art Online.

         I have a psp (well, two actually). but I don’t like hacking my consoles.

           Unfortunately for PSP games nowadays, its almost a necessity, if you wanna play any of the awesome Japanese games that come out in a language you can understand.  You can still support the devs by buying the games you patch.
