Sword Art Online The Movie: Ordinal Scale | Poster

Fans who attend select screenings of Sword Art Online The Movie: Ordinal Scale will get to enjoy a special bonus featurette. The featurette will show in Fathom screenings of the movie on March 9.

It will feature the Japanese voice actors behind Kirito and Asuna, Yoshitsugu Matsuoka and Haruka Tomatsu. Tomatsu and Matsuoka will give a special message to the fans and reflect on the Sword Art Online franchise. The bonus featurette will include English subtitles.

A prologue for the film is provided by Aniplex USA:

In 2022, the world of virtual reality was upended by the arrival of a new invention from a genius programmer, Akihiko Kayaba. Called NerveGear, it was the first full-dive system and with it, came endless possibilities to VRMMORPGs.
In 2026, a new machine called the Augma is developed to compete against the NerveGear and its successor, the Amusphere. A next-gen wearable device, the Augma doesn’t have a full-dive function like its predecessors. Instead, it uses Augmented Reality (AR) to get players into the game. It is safe, user-friendly and lets users play while they are conscious, making it an instant hit on the market. The most popular game on the system is “Ordinal Scale” (aka: OS), an ARMMORPG developed exclusively for the Augma.
Asuna and the gang have already been playing OS for a while, by the time Kirito decides to join them. They’re about to find out that Ordinal Scale isn’t all fun and games…

Sword Art Online The Movie: Ordinal Scale is set to screen on March 9, 2017. You can purchase tickets for the screening HERE.

    There was a time when SAO was one of the best anime out there. That time ended midway through season 1 when they left Aincrad. 🙁
