At the “Dengeki Bunko Aki no Saiten 2017” event in Tokyo, the Sword Art Online panel announced not one but two television anime projects for the SAO franchise. First is the new story arc for the series Sword Art Online Alicization Arc and second is Sword Art Online Alternative Gun Gale Online. Checkout the video promotions below.

 

While the Alicization arc will cover volumes 9 through 18 of the novel series, the Alternative GGO will revolve around a new protagonist named Karen who enters the world of Gun Gale Online and meets another female player named Pitohui as they both participate in a battle royale called “Squad Jam”.

Sword slashing and Guns blazing are back! Although there is no official release date yet, this is definitely hype!
