The onslaught of Vita RPGs continue as Siliconera is reporting that Bandai Namco revealed at their Global Gamer’s Days event that Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment would be coming to North America as a download only title this summer. This is the second game in the franchise and the first to release in the West.

Personally, I am pretty excited for this one, with customizable avatars, some dating sim elements, and even a multiplayer element where up to four  players can have an AI partner for a total of eight players. This looks to be a fully fleshed out RPG experience.

Which features of the game are you most excited about? Please let us know in the comments below.

About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.
