Dengeki Online has gone up with a new preview of Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization, introducing character customization, a new area, and Named Monsters.
In Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization, you can change Kirito’s appearance through original character creation. You can customize gender, height, figure, chest measurements, eye shape and color, mouth shape, hairdo and hair color, skin color, voice, weapons, and more.
Here are a few examples of custom created characters:
The new area is called the Marshlands, and features thickly grown vegetation, a dark atmosphere, waterfall, dangerous poison swamp, and mysterious cave.
“Named Monsters”—monsters with considerable strength—will occassionally appear on the field. Unlike boss monsters where you can prepare in advance, you won’t know when they’ll appear, so be on alert.
Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization is due out for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita this fall in Japan, and in 2016 in North America and Europe.
