Sword Art Online Re: Hollow Fragment Heads To PC Later This Month (VIDEO)
One simply never knows if original Japanese titles will make it to Steam, but there’s always a semblance of hope that the developers realize the overseas fanbase! However, a popular entry of the video game adaptation of the wildly popular Sword Art Online series is heading to PC as a standalone purchase. Even though Sword Art Online Re: Hollow Fragment has been available on PlayStation 4 for some time now, Bandai Namco finally revealed its PC availability.
SAO Re: Hollow Fragment is essentially a director’s cut edition of its predecessor of a similar name, minus the “re.” It offered various new features and gameplay content not available on the original title and based on the acclaim from enthusiasts of the franchise, PC players couldn’t wait for their turn to try it out. Unfortunately, news never came. The PC release of Fatal Bullet did offer Re: Hollow Fragment as a pre-order bonus during the aforementioned game’s launch, but a notable demographic anticipated a standalone launch of the latter. Thankfully, it’s now a dream come true.
Bandai Namco spared quite a few details on its upcoming release. However, for non-Japanese speaking fans out there, it will likely have an English language localization. There’s no reason why it wouldn’t be possible. Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment has a come a long way since its PS Vita release in 2014 and it gained so much traction, developer Aquris had to create variations for modern platforms. Fandom and demand works in magical ways.
