Earlier today, Bandai Namco announced the sequel to Sword Art Online: Lost Song would be headed West. Earlier today, the publisher sent out the first screenshots of the game, which I’ve oh-so helpfully embedded below for your viewing pleasure.

SAO: Lost Song was a great game, but based on the trailer and screenshots, it appears as though Hollow Realization has the potential to surpass it. The action looks a lot smoother and the visuals are a definite improvement.

We don’t know much beyond a proposed 2016 launch date, but I’m betting we’ll see it at E3 this year, if not sooner.
