Looks like they made huge change in direction since game will follow anime story instead of expanding their own SAO gameverse

Here’s a quote from Bandai Namco America Brand Marketing Manager, Jennifer Tsang:
“For the first time in a Sword Art Online video game, players will be able to faithfully follow the events of the anime series. We look forward to players and fans experiencing the Alicization story arc as Kirito, uncovering the mysteries of Underworld, and making new friends along the way.”​

I've never played any of the SAO games but I really enjoyed watching SAO: Alicization so it's good to see them making a game out of it. I'll read the reviews to see how this one turns out before deciding whether to jump in or not.

So, of the SAO games that I've played, I've not been impressed with them for many reasons, so when this comes out I think I'll hang back and watch some gamepaly in action before I consider purchasing

This should be less like Fatal Bullet (the tps) and more like the others

Hm, maybe more like using the same engine from Fatal Bullet, but more developed, and focused in Close combat.

That's what I saw from the trailer, same engine, and similar mechanics
