  1. That app game actually looks like it could be a lot of fun. The gameplay certainly seems well designed so hopefully it’s free. I’ll definitely download it if so.

    • From I understand, the game will be free but it will have the usual in-app purchases (like most anime games). I am looking forward to this game. I how well the game looks. Since I do like SAO, this is a must for me.

      • Awesome, I’ll definitely be checking it out then. I’ve been playing mobile games a little more than I used too, thanks to Pokemon Go and they definitely have some good appeal. They’re simple, but very addicting.

      • That’s pretty cool. Haha with Pokemon Go, I tend to be on my phone a lot. I am probably the few people who likes to play anime games on the phone than other mainstream games XD.
