Sword Art Online

Announced at the Dengeki Bunko Haru no Saiten 2016 event, Aniplex of America announced the recent news to the upcoming Sword Art Online film and released a trailer.

Here is what is new for this film courtesy to Crunchyroll. The film will use AR (Augmented Reality) Type Information Terminal “Augma” and Ordinal Scale.

AR (Augmented Reality) Type Information Terminal “Augma”
A next-generation, wearable multi-device that looks like a pair of small headphones. In terms of size and portability, it is far superior to the existing VR machine “Amusphere.” Augma doesn’t have a full-dive function, however, its AR function is greatly enhanced to compensate for it. It can transmit visual, audio and tactual sensation data to players while they are awake, thus enabling the users to enjoy fitness and health management like a game.

“Ordinal Scale,” an ARMMO-RPG that was designed exclusively for “Augma.”
Following its release, it has become the most discussed game due to its advanced technology. In this game, players can raise their rank by collecting items that appear in various places in the real world and by defeating monsters. This “Ranking System” is the main feature of the game, and in this system, each player’s status is determined by their rank which is indicated by an ordinal number instead of a cardinal number. As the result, high ranking players are given overwhelming power and often rank has become a major factor in deciding the outcome of a PvP battle.

  1. Awwee. Cool. I just hope they’d have an international screening though. We never got the chance to have some anime films in cinemas here. Sigh

  2. I’m ready for these films! I thought that SAO got pretty mediocre to downright terrible at times during the show, but I’ll always love the very first arc so I’ve got some hope for the film. Accel World typically has great fights so that should be fun as well.

    • Personally, Sword Art Online is a great show, though I am biased. I still need to finish Accel World but I agree that the fight moments are great to watch. Too bad we have to wait until 2017 for the SAO film.

    • Me too. This looks really good. If I have to wait until next year for it to be the best film, it will be worth it. I can’t wait to see how it ties to the original story. ^^

  3. 2017 feels like such a long time to wait!! SAO is easily the best anime I’ve watched in recent years and I do hope that they do get the same voice cast all around for the movie as they really have become connected to their characters so much over time. I’d like to watch it in the original Japanese language, can’t wait!!

    • It may take awhile but I bet it will be worth it. The Japanese language is good and I hope they will dub the anime as well. Sword Art Online is my favorite anime as well and I hope the film gets done soon. ^_^
