Introducing the infamous Player Killing guild "Laughing Coffin."

Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment

Bandai Namco released a new trailer and screenshots for Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment at E3 introducing the infamous Player Killing guild “Laughing Coffin” and its leader PoH.

Additionally, Bandai Namco shared character descriptions for new character Philia and the returning Strea.

  • Philia: The mysterious girl met by Kirito in “Hollow Area”… Who is she? Where does she come from?
  • Strea: She met Kirito after the 76th Floor and joins him frequently. Her skill compares favorably with the Assault Team, though it is unknown which guild or party she belonged to for two years.
  • PoH: A red player called the killer. The player killing organization “Laughing Coffin” was thought to be wiped out but… He is active behind the scenes in “Hollow Area”.

Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment is due out for PS Vita via PlayStation Network this July in North America and Europe.

Watch the trailer below. View the screenshots at the gallery.

  • Jesse

    Is it “Laughing Coughin” or “Laughing Coffin”? O.o “Coffin” sounds right, while the other sounds…silly. XD

    • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

      Laughing Coughin sounds like some kind of lung disease… Also, I was hoping for Englisg voices.

      • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

        Nope

        • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

          Nope what? That I can’t expect English voices?

          • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

            Yea, was already announced it’s subbed

            • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

              Huh? Where?

              The announcement doesn’t have such wording.

              • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

                I guess you’re in for a surprise, no dub for you

                • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

                  So you are going to tell me it’s been announced, even though nobody has reported on it, and then you’re going to just say otherwise? Pff, whatever.

                  • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

                    You’re going to be mhhhhad when you get it

      • Jesse

        Ah, thanks. ^^

        • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

          Np ^^

  • AdamBoy64

    Okay. This and a Playstation TV would go down nicely.

    • jujubee88

      If some stupid firmware thing will stop this being on PSTV (when it’s on VTV — which is the same thing) I will rage.

      • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

        Cry more son, it’s already compatible on the Japanese Vita TV

      • AdamBoy64

        Yeah, that would be bad. Probably not likely though.

      • Zackasaur

        PlayStation TV uses the same firmware as PlayStation Vita TV….

        They merely made the name sleeker/less Vita oriented.

      • JeremyTMH

        Works fine on PS TV, you just need PS TV support in your region and it’ll work fine.

  • Guest

    is there a release date yet for the western release?

    • Jesse

      Aside from sometime in July, no. ^^;

  • Zackasaur

    I’m looking for some help!

    From where should I import the Taiwanese version? I want a legitimate physical copy, but I also need to play in English. :P

    • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

      Taiwanese version either yesasia or playasia

      • Zackasaur

        All right, thanks! I wanted the cheapest option that would also be trustworthy. c:

        • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

          Np and I’ve been using playasia for years, just don’t take free shipping

          • Elvick

            I always take the cheapest with tracking. No way I’d take anything without tracking when it’s shipping from across the world. :

    • DrForbidden

      Be forewarned that the Asian version has Engrish, not English. If that’s acceptable to you, great. If not, you may have to reconsider.

  • The Moeshit

    “Laughing Coughin”
    Sally, it’s Laughing Coffin.

    • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

      He’s busy posting new news

      • The Moeshit

        I know, it’s E3. I’m leaving my comment there for when he gets back to see.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    oh man where’s digimon

  • sunK1D

    More Suguha pls

  • DrForbidden

    Famitsu has unveiled Kirito’s KoB outfit DLC:

    http://www.famitsu.com/images/000/054/284/l_538c0bcd649b0.jpg

    • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

      Interesting but I couldn’t see Kirito using a shield

      He actually already had a KoB outfit though

      • JeremyTMH

        The DLC will give the sword (Innocent Ruler) and the Shield.

        The armor is White Knight’s Jacket, its a Last Attack bonus from the first Rank 3 boss mission in the first hollow area (The forest area. Rank 3 L150 Kobold Boss mission). Its the 2nd most powerful armor for Kirito and it has the Attacker passive that give +30% attack and skill damage at the cost of -50% DEF.

        The boots are White Knight boots and is the most powerful leg armor in the game for Kirito at the moment. Gotten from first Rank 3 boss mission in the final Hollow Area, the outer world from the Demon Beast Rank 3 L160 Mission. It gives passive Soul Connect which gives the same bonus as the Infinity Moment head accessory for those with a clear psp save.

        Soul Connect gives: Increased Running Speed, Lower Skill Cast Delay, Increased Attack Speed and SP Regen.

        The effect from the botos and Infinity Moment do NOT stack. Getting the boots will allow you to give the Infinity Moment head accessory to your fave girl instead if you want. The boots give better stats overall.

  • PrinceHeir

    Yes more Vita games!!!!

  • Willgaea

    So is this game semi real time/ turn based?

    • DyLaN

      Real time IIRC.

      • Willgaea

        IIRC.( if I call correctly) ha never mind. thanks.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          for convincing you can see the japanese gameplay trailer

          and IIRC also it’s real time

          • Willgaea

            Can you post a link :]?

    • TwinBuns

      I still can’t tell from watching videos. It kind of looks like you run freely around a dungeon, optionally walk up to stationary enemies and pick attacks from a menu that’s permanently displayed on screen.

      I haven’t even been able to figure out if it’s actual online/adhoc multiplayer or pseudo multiplayer (1 AI “partner” + 4 AI party characters).

      The lack of concise information and the heavy dating aspect puts me off really. If it’s anything like Tales of the World Radiant Mythology series I might get it.

      • Willgaea

        I’d definitely pick it up if it’s anything like ToW.

  • SatsukiYumizuka

    Is Sachi in this game?

    • DyLaN

      Yes.

    • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

      Dlc

      • JeremyTMH

        She’s in the game before dlc, the Inheritors of Glory large update dlc merely let’s you bring her on dates and maybe expand a bit on her. You can do a secret quest after clearing Hollow Area’s story to get her playable and see her story.

  • Budgiecat

    the graphics shoulda looked like the intro…..
