If you follow Annotated Anime, you probably already know how I feel about Sword Art Online these days. I think it's got a whole lot of problems, many of which will probably never be fixed. That being said, I'm still sort of enjoying it, and I still dig the premise. Maybe it would work better as an actual game?
It won't be much longer until we find out if that's the case. Releasing on March 24 of 2013, Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment for the PSP takes place after the first arc of the anime series, telling an alternate tale that sees Asuna and Kirito battling their way up from level 75.
The game is an RPG, but features some light VN elements and real time combat. Recent Famitsu/Dengeki Playstation coverage has also revealed an explorable city and various dungeons, so it looks like this is the complete package. CMs have started to hit the airwaves here in Japan, and the 2nd one just hit Youtube on Sunday. Check it out above and let us know what you think in the comments below!
