Bandai Namco, who we’ve covered for a couple years now, has brought the popular novel series Sword Art Online to mobile platforms in the West for the first time ever with Sword Art Online: Memory Defrag.
Sword Art Online: Memory Defrag puts players in control of Kirito, Asuna, Leafa, and other fan favorite characters set directly in storylines from the original anime along with an all-new story created for the game. We’re told that players who download the game for a limited time will be rewarded with special items including character unlocks, special items and more.
Utilizing an intuitive gesture system, Sword Art Online: Memory Defrag brings intense adventure and fast-paced action that fans will love. With a series of taps and flicks, players can execute a variety of attacks using a selection of one-handed and dual-wielding weapons and skills, including swords, guns, bows, and magic. Gamers can also tailor their weapon loadouts and skills to their playstyles, and master characters’ moves to take on bosses and dungeons.
In addition to the single-player story mode, Sword Art Online: Memory Defrag is set to receive an update that will unlock a new cooperative multiplayer mode so players can team up to battle boss monsters. We don’t have any word on when Bandi Namco will release this update, but we’ll be sure to keep you in the loop.
Sword Art Online: Memory Defrag is available to download on the App Store for free, however, there are in-app purchases.
