The complex world of Sword Art Online has been adapted to video game format multiple times, with varying results. Mobile devices also received games based on the series in the past, and today a brand new game has been released in English on both iOS and Android.
Sword Art Online Alicization Rising Steel is based pon the latest story arc of Sword Art Online, featuring the same events seen in the anime. Additional story content, however, has been added to the game, so that the narration of the events will be slightly different, giving fans of the anime something new to look forward to.
Sword Art Online Alicization Rising Steel is pretty much a gacha JRPG, where players must collect heroes from all over the series, and not just the latest story arc, power them up and pit them against enemies. The battle system is standard-fare, for the most part, but the actual combat scenes are spectacular, with beautiful animations and plenty of special effects.
Sword Art Online Alicization Rising Steel will not revolutionize JRPGs on iOS and Android, but it will offer a solid experience that even those who are not all that knowledgeable of the franchise can enjoy.
Sword Art Online Alicization Rising Steel is now available on iOS and Android worldwide.
