New Trailer Shows a Little of PSP Sword Art Online Game

Sword Art Online PSP

Apparently the best way to get a library on the PSP is to release another Sony handheld, or so one might believe, seeing the latest trailer for Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment.

This trailer shows off a small amount of gameplay, as action-y as it is, as well as Kirito, the main character, dual-wielding swords and stuff, which is apparently his superpower in the anime upon which the game is based. If nothing else, Sword Art Online looks pretty, which seems to hold up in the trailer for the game.

This is Japan-only for now, obviously, but Aniplex of America has licensed the anime, so if it gets popular enough here, we might see at least a digital release of Infinity Moment. I mean, look how many Naruto games are floating around.

If the PSP title is anything like the anime, it will probably start off really good, but then lose traction fast when the world itself isn't the centerpiece, then probably end up offending a lot of people.


Japan will know for sure on March 14th, 2013, with both UMD version and digital being 6280 yen, or about $72, with the special edition being 9,980, or around $114.


Looks like pretty standard RPG fare (or action-RPG, it's hard to tell) so it wouldn't really bother me if this didn't get a release stateside. It makes sense that they'd release it on PSP over Vita though, since I think it's safe to say a lot more people in Japan have PSPs than Vitas, so the only way to make sales numbers for games like this and other recent PSP releases matter is to make sure the majority of fans can buy the game.
Once the PS Vita starts getting the buttload of RPG's and anime tie-in games like the PSP does it'll sell way more in Japan. But I think I speak for a lot of Vita users when I say I want these games stateside if they ever get made D:
