Latest look at PS Vita's upcoming Sword Art Online game.

The latest set of Sword Art Online: Battle Fragment screenshots show a new area, battles, and a closer look at the mysterious girl Kirito will encounter.

The “Sea of Trees / Temple” area is a forest within the Hollow Area where sunlight filters through the trees. Here, huge tree roots stretch around the temple to block entry.

The battle system in Hollow Fragment is a complete change from the battle system in Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment. It will be faster and more active, and players can avoid enemy attacks using the step system. In the Hollow Area, one of the bosses you’ll encounter is a giant spider-like creature called the “Hollow Reaper.”

Hollow Fragment‘s story revolves around the Hollow Area, where Kirito runs into a mysterious girl. You’ll see artwork of this still unnamed character in the screenshots.

    That mysterious girl being Alice is too obvious. Come one, at least make her put on a mask/helmet.

        Aside from the old KH: Final Mix games, I just refuse to import games from Japan. I’ll miss this if I have to. But they’ll have my money if they release it in English.

    I’m glad to know that they improved the battle system in this.

    The combat looked very dynamic and fast-paced in the debut trailer, so that’s definitely an improvement over the PSP game.
