Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment Coming To Vita This Summer

Fantasy aficionados should appreciate this.

Bandai Namco has announced that the action/RPG, Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment, will land on North American store shelves this summer. It'll arrive as a digital release exclusively on the PlayStation Vita.

The title launched in Japan this past week, and it features dungeon-crawling action goodness with dating sim elements. Players get to experience a robust character creation system, and they can team up with other Vita owners and AI-controlled characters. Obviously, the multiplayer aspect is a big part of the game, although we wonder how the dating sim parts come into play...

We've been saying for a long time now that Sony's portable needs more AAA exclusive software. Not sure if Sword Art Online qualifies, but it's certainly a niche title. And that's something.

Season one drags a bit at some points after the first few episodes. There are some cool scenes though, and it ends on a high note.

Season 2 looks really good.

Unless you're able to laugh at how spectacularly a show can launch itself off a cliff in the second half, no you should not.

Anyone who has watched the show will understand the dating sim aspects of the game. I kind of like how they have implemented that part of the show as well. Kirito and Asuna's relationship was one of the major plot points of the show.

People shouldn't worry about the dating sim deal, it works wonderful fun in Persona.

This is a quality rpg right here, unlike that final fantasy horse manure.
