Not enough, as long they're based on the right animes.

This might be a battle royale game? Shit, that peaks my interest.

It seems so. I wonder if the game (if it's the Gun Gale setting) will have shooter and melee combat, or something else (did not make it in time to watch the trailer)?

I just remembered something important. Dimps was involved with the development of Freedom Wars. Hopefully this is on par.

Looks like PSO2, gameplay-wise.

Probably like God Eater. Single player with co-op focus and multiplayer.

Kinda looks like they took Freedom Wars, slapped a current-gen coat of paint on to it, and called it SAO.

Wow. Finally a GGO title. Little sad they never tackled that arc on Vita, but I'm so ready for this.

I have a strange love for the SAO games even though they're cheap and janky. I'm expecting this to be the same (especially given Dimps) but I kinda like that.

Not a fan of the GGO arc (wasted potential, the first episode was great and then they shoehorned Kirito back in), but after Hollow Realization was so dull I don't really want another Aincrad style game again. This looks a bit like Freedom Wars and that was pretty cool, so fingers crossed.

Technically speaking, there was only Sinon in the anime, so....




Needs gender neutral Kirito..



And lots of big guns...

What's next a Fairy Tail game funded by Bamco? Maybe another Bleach game since we're going with incredibly bad and worthless anime/mango suggestions.

Actually surprised they replaced Vita with XB1. Switch would be a better fit for a game based on an anime...

Very cool!

I do kind of wish the visuals went for the aesthetics of something like Dragon Ball FighterZ and Ninja Storm 4 though, the way how the art and shaders look in those games make it look like you're playing an anime!

EDIT: After looking at the new gameplay video I think the aesthetics work really well with the game! Awesome!

SA:O started off as a really solid anime. Season 2 also started well but then once the killer shooter guy was defeated it all devolved into the same old tropey harem waifu anime fanservice bullshit that pollutes too much modern anime.

If this game sticks with the premise of the first third of SAO season 2, I might buy it.
