Coming out of Tokyo Game Show 2019, Bandai Namco released a new story trailer for Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris to show off the game. And based on what we can see here, the promises seem to be true about the content. One of the biggest complaints about the series, (both in games and the anime) is that the original MMO story was never fully realized. And all versions of the video game series have basically moved on past that original concept. However, this game focuses squarely on that first anime season and all of your favorite characters. You can check out a full description with newly released screenshots and a trailer below! Still no word on a release date.
