Sword Art Online has had its fair share of games over the years, and this new one is set to come out on Android/iOS later on this year.

But what’s ALICIZATION Rising Steel about? The story is actually a combination of stories from the original anime series, along with some exclusive content to create a unique, and thrilling experience that all players can enjoy.

As for gameplay, players will battle within an Anime-style combat game, featuring characters and enemies familiar to those with the Sword Art Online series. The gameplay will be simple and intuitive, including special “sword skill” moves activated by simply tapping the smartphone screen – which possesses the spirit of anime-like motion battles.

The new original scenarios, adding on from the anime and light novel, have also been approved by series creator Reki Kawahara, though whether that means any of the new content will be ‘canon’ in the series remains to be seen.

ALICIZATION Rising Steel will also be the very first Sword Art Online game localised in Spanish, German and French.
