Sword Art Online: Lost Song gets a western release date

Western gaming fans of Sword Art Online will get a new adventure this fall

Japanese video game publishers have been a tad stingy in the past when it comes to releasing their niche products to hungry Western audiences. It took almost ten years for us to receive the Final Mix of Kingdom Hearts when it was released with Kingdom Heats HD 1.5 ReMIX in 2013.

That being said, games that extend past a niche and into the mainstream would surely get a close western release date relative to its national date. In an announcement this morning, Sword Art Online: Lost Song will be getting its debut in the West much sooner than anticipated with a release date for PS3 and PS Vita this November 13th. 

Players take on the role of the series protagonist Kirito

When it comes to extending a brand into the video game circuit, the popular anime Sword Art Online would appear to have the easier route based on its source material. The world involves the use of virtual reality gaming systems that allow players to enter virtual worlds and combat whatever threat the plot throws at them. You can already picture what a game for this would be in your head, right? 

This new adventure will take players to a virtual world that has not been shown in the series before. The game will feature a new story for players to experience with characters that are familiar to fans will be playable as the story progresses. Fans of the series will be able to pick up the new installment in November.
