Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization Set For Western Release

Bandai Namco made plenty of announcements at Jump Festa this past weekend, and now they've got another one, and this will appeal to JRPG lovers in the west.

Today, the publisher has confirmed that Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization will be available in the Americas for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in 2016.

It's the fourth entry in the popular series and previously, it was only confirmed for Japan. Said Bandai Namco America marketing executive Eric Hartness:

"The Sword Art Online franchise has experienced incredible growth in popularity on a global level with light-novel and anime fans. With Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization, we're striving to take fans even further into Sword Art Online's VRMMORPG world. We hope players are ready for the challenge."

We just reviewed Sword Art Online: Lost Song on PS4 and while we weren't impressed, we figured it would effectively cater to the die-hard fans. Chances are, you can expect a similar deal with Hollow Realization . Here's the debut trailer:
