Plus, customize your own Kirito in ad-hoc multiplayer mode.

In previous media for Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment, we saw a mysterious girl who Kirito runs into in Aincrad’s unexplored “Hollow Area.” This week’s Dengeki PlayStation confirms her name to be Filia, voiced by Yui Ishikawa (who also voices Attack on Titan‘s Mikasa).

The game will have an ad-hoc multiplayer mode that supports up to eight characters (four players with partner characters). Each will be able to customize their own Kirito, changing features such as his face, hairdo, and voice.

Other tidbits from Dengeki include: there will be actions you can do with your partner; maps and graphics are being retouched for PS Vita; and it sounds like you’ll be able to control the camera (for instance, to see the heroine up close).

Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment is due out for PS Vita next year in Japan.

Thanks, Game Nyarth.

    Would prefer they used infrastructure mode for the online

      Exactly.

      Its not 2005 anymore…

      Adhoc multiplayer is something from early on in the PSP era. It’s like using dial up in today’s gaming era. And even the PSP had infrastructure….(what games even used it….Resistance Retribution…SOCOM..)

      We’re on a new handheld way more powerful than it with WiFi 3G. and developers STILL can’t be bothered to use it properly.
      And noooo Adhoc Party or XLink Kai is not a substitute okay? Not if the wireless handheld console can handle it without those.(just in case Tetsuya shows up to argue me with those points)

      The game should be called Sword Art OFFLINE

    Customize their Kirito instead of their own character? Whatever, I got dibs on his Gun Gale Online avatar if the game has it…

  • Erena Arisu

    and she will fall in love with kirito in less then 2 seconds…

  • Gariya

    Wait, she’s not Alice?

  • LordKaiser

    i wonder when Gun gale Online will be released at least on manga.

    • DyLaN

      If anything, anime is more possible since manga usually don’t go that fast and they tend to start only when anime is around the corner to hype it up.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    whut? customize your own Kirito?
    lol
    4 kirito(s) in a battle

  • perrandy

    really enjoyed the anime.was bothered by the incest themes but beside that the anime was pretty well done and the characters were endearing.would love to see a second season of it tho.btw,any chances that this game will come to the west

    Ad hoc? No. Online or nothing please

    • Bigabu Beaze

      Ad hoc is better than nothing.

      • NeoTechni

        Not really. In most cases, like local multiplayer nintendo games, it IS nothing, cause its such a pain to organize.

        • Bigabu Beaze

          Ah I see.
