Today Bandai Namco Entertainment showcased a lot of footage of its upcoming JRPG Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris.
First of all, we get to see a trailer focusing on story and gameplay on top of another showing off Asuna.
Then we move on to gameplay, showcased during a livestream hosted by the Japanese magazine Dengeki PlayStation, on top of a few slides.
We see how you can create different characters and go on adventures in co-op with four more players and four NPCs.
One of the most interesting features is the ability to learn from your attack pattern and turn them into an AI that can be used by an NPC. There can be about 300 adventurers and your AI can help out other players around the world.
You can customize your appearance by selecting a costume separately from the equipment you’re wearing with the Visualize Attire feature, and you can also add powers onto costumes.
Last, but not least, we get to see a world boss in action. They appear if you fulfill certain conditions.
We then see costumes that can be acquired with CUBEs and more bonus outfits
