Accel World vs. Sword Art Online is coming to PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in North America and Europe this summer, Bandai Namco announced. In North America, it will be digital-only on both systems. In Europe, the PlayStation 4 version will have a physical release.
It should be noted that Bandai Namco’s press FTP contains a Steam box art for the game, which we’ve added in our gallery below, though the press release or trailer makes no mention of a PC version. We’ve e-mailed Bandai Namco for clarity and are awaiting a response.
Here’s an overview of the Artdink-developed action RPG, via Bandai Namco:
