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.
