Bandai Namco Entertainment revealed this week that the Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization game for the Playstation systems (PS4 & PS Vita) will be released on November 8th for all of North America and Europe.
The game will be available in both physical forms of collector’s box sets and digital-only version for downloads through the PSN. Anyone in North America who pre-orders Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization will receive digital bonus items such as a costume pack including “MAID” and “Nightwear” costumes for Asuna, and God Eater skin-costumes that make female characters as Livie and male characters appear as Soma.
Anyone in Europe pre-ordering the game will receive the same bonuses as well as an A4-size lithography signed by Sword Art Online creator Reki Kawahara. Yeah, I know right? I thought the US Dollar was much stronger than the Euros right now. Why are they getting extra stuff?!
The international release of Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization features Japanese voices with English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish text. That means no English dubs, sorry.
The North-American Collector’s Edition box set includes: six-inch figures of Kirito and Asuna, special collector’s edition packaging, a bonus Blu-ray Disc (containing something important I’m sure), an Original Soundtrack CD, mini posters, decal sheets, and an official SAO-Hollow-Realization Artbook.
The European collector’s edition box set will just include the six-inch figures of Kirito and Asuna as bonuses (Ah! I see, okay that’s fair…).
Both Europe and North-American sets will be available for the PS4 edition of the game only.
