The Sword Art Online movie official website has updated, and it now reveals a new visual. This new visual features both Kirito and Asuna, as well as the world of the VRMMO, Ordinal Scale.
They are also giving the film a global release. Because of this, the Aniplex US channel started streaming an English-subtitled trailer for the movie.
Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale will premiere in Japanese theatres on 18th February before hitting other countries. The official website describes the story as:
“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.
