With the end of the Sword Art Online: Alicization – War of Underworld today, it concluded by making sure we know there’s more coming. And that’s in the form of the Sword Art Online: Progressive, which is basically a retelling in a cleaned up fashion of the original story. The original novels are things that will definitely appeal to two different type of fans with an overlap; one are those that enjoy worldbuilding and want to see more of Aincrad explored and characters and stories that were passed over in the original, and those that really enjoy the Kirito and Asuna relationship, which is covered both in-game and in real life more than in the original.

No staff, cast, dates, or anything else was revealed with the announcement.

The novels and manga have been picked up and released in North America by Yen Press.

Plot Concept: There’s no way to beat this game. The only difference is when and where you die…’ One month has passed since Akihiko Kayaba’s deadly game began, and the body count continues to rise. Two thousand players are already dead. Kirito and Asuna are two very different people, but they both desire to fight alone. Nonetheless, they find themselves drawn together to face challenges from both within and without. Given that the entire virtual world they now live in has been created as a deathtrap, the surviving players of Sword Art Online are starting to get desperate, and desperation makes them dangerous to loners like Kirito and Asuna. As it becomes clear that solitude equals suicide, will the two be able to overcome their differences to find the strength to believe in each other, and in so doing survive? Sword Art Online: Progressive is a new version of the Sword Art Online tale that starts at the beginning of Kirito and Asuna’s epic adventure–on the very first level of the deadly world of Aincrad!
