Silica, other heroines also in Sword Art Online for PS Vita

Plus, what's new character Filia's secret? It rhymes with borange.

Dengeki Online has gone up with a new preview of Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment, providing a first look at Silica in the upcoming PS Vita game.

Silica isn’t the only heroine besides Asuna and Filia joining appearing in the game. Leafa, Lisbeth, Yui, Sinon, and Strea will appear, too.

And speaking of Filia, a new character Kirito encounters in Aincrad’s unexplored “Hollow Area,” she appears to be an “Orange Player”—someone who commits a crime, like player killing, in Sword Art Online.

Also in Dengeki’s preview, we get a look at an area with floating operation console displays and the boss battle “Detonator The Kobold Load.”

And here’s a event scene shot of Leafa and Sinon at the hot spring.

Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment is due out for PS Vita in Japan on April 24 for 6,170 yen. A 9,980 yen limited edition will also be released.
