Sword Art Online Virtual Reality Game in the Works
IBM Japan has announced that Sword Art Online will be getting a virtual reality game titled Sword Art Online: The Beginning. The game will aim to create the world of SAO.
The game will not use a controller, but will be played by moving your body. SAO series creator Kawahara Reki says that “it will be completely different from any game experience so far.”
The project is using a next-generation computing system called the “Cognitive System” that supports human decision-making, as well as “SoftLayer,” IBM’s high performance cloud system that produces the ambiance of a real world.
A teaser trailer was released:
