If you're an anime fan and a lover of action/RPGs, this news is for you.
As reported by Siliconera , publisher Bandai Namco has announced that Sword Art Online: Long Song will hit the PlayStation 3 and Vita some time next year.
The game centers on the fictional MMORPG game "Alfheim Online" so basically, it's a game about an MMO; it isn't really an MMO itself. It's more of an action/RPG that will boast an entirely new plot created specifically for this entry. Obviously, this title is only confirmed for Japan right now, but given the anime's rising popularity, it might end up being localized for North America and Europe.
It's interesting that an anime series has tackled the concept of MMORPGs and then used that concept as the baseline of a new game franchise. It's not a bad idea; it's just a matter of how it plays , yes?
