Today Bandai Namco Entertainment released a new batch of screenshots of the upcoming JRPG-meets-third-person shooter Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullett.
This time around, the reveal focuses on characters, and we start with a new face. Daisy is a Type-X ArFA-sys exactly like the hero’s and she belongs to Zeliska. Her owner cherishes her and she doesn’t appear to take part in battle.
Several known characters are also making a comeback from previous Sword Art Online episodes. Of course, they all get new outfits. We get to see Yui, Argo, Philia, and Rain.
We also see that Lisbeth has reopened her weapon shop in Gun Gale Online, and she can strengthen guns by forging materials on the base versions. Enhanced versions will be marked “+” and “++”.
Weapons also have memory chips that contain special abilities. By merging them, players will be able to own guns with multiple memory chips and as such multiple special effects. On top of that, Lisbeth’s proficiency will improve as the story progresses.
Last, but not least, we see the “Old South” area of the game.
You can check out the screenshots below. If you want to see more, you can also watch a recent trailer, the opening cutscene, a gallery of screenshots focusing on Kirito Mode and more elements of the title’s gameplay, a previous batch focusing on the ArFA-Sys AI companion, a trailer in Japanese showcasing the multiplayer features, another recent trailer in English, and a gallery of screenshots featuring more members of the cast. On top of that, you should also check out some PS4 gameplay that I recorded in Tokyo just before Tokyo Game Show.
Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet will release launch on February 23rd in both North America and Europe, for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. That’s just two weeks after the Japanese launch date on February 8th.
