Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet | Kirito Mode 1

BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. has revealed some more details for Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet. The information includes details on a new optional story mode involving Kirito as well as a costume creation quest involving Asuna.

Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet | Kirito Mode 2

The first new mode introduced is called Kirito Mode. In this mode, the player takes control of Kirito, the main protagonist of the light novels, as he fights his way through the Bullet of Bullets tournament in order to confront Death Gun. The player will be able to freely explore the Remnant Wastelands map and have the ability to use weapons such as the handgun, sniper rifle, and photon saber.
