Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris | Play the Anime

You’ll be playing as Kirito in a faithful recreation of the SAO anime storyline, but nearly everything else in the game is up to you. Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris is all about character customization and exploration. Check out the video above for an example of the freedom you’ll have when designing exactly what your own Kirito avatar looks like.

Characters and Features

The characters Leafa, Lisbeth, Sinon, and Silica from the SAO anime series will appear for the first time in Alicization Lycoris; all of whom can be recruited into your party (if you choose), and even played as. In addition, you’ll be able to equip custom clothing, armor, and weapons to express your own personal flair and style. Swim, climb, and jump as you explore the vast in-game world; or hunt and fish to gather ingredients for a gourmet meal.

As for combat, gather up to four of your friends to take on challenging enemies that stand in your way. Alicization Lycoris features visceral real-time combat and a detailed skill tree; allowing you to unlock powerful Sacred Arts and upgrade your weapons to maximum potential!

As you’ll soon see, the mysterious Underworld is brimming with adventure. It is a place that will prove to be both mysterious and familiar (depending on how well you know the anime).
