Bandai has dropped some new information for Sword Art Online, ahead of E3. While the mystery deepens around Premiere, new characters are part of the Hollow Realization adventure. Agil and Klein, both former Sword Art Online players, return and will join Kirito for new adventures in Aincrad.
Through them and other characters, players will be able to interact with and experience new social and online features.
Everything starts in the Town of Beginning, where players can customize their avatar and prepare themselves for combat encounters. To help them in these new challenges, players can meet and hire NPCs (with more than 300 of them available in the game), create special bonds and even offer them equipment. The closer they are to the player, the stronger they will become.
