Sword Art Online: Integral Factor to launch worldwide later this year

Sword Art Online: Integral Factor is set to launch on a global scale in 2018, Bandai Namco has announced.

Integral Factor acted as one the company’s flagship mobile titles at an event in San Francisco today where it showcased its upcoming library.

Trusted Reviews were in attendance and had a chance to play the mobile RPG ahead of its official release.

Based on the popular anime and light novel series of the same name, Sword Art Online: Integral Factor follows a group of characters who find themselves trapped inside a virtual fantasy game.

Instead of following the animated series, Integral Factor puts you in control of a new protagonist who can be completely customised with unique stats, features and outfits.

The developer told Trusted Reviews that Integral Factor will receive an abundance of new content in the coming months to celebrate its worldwide launch.

This will include seasonal events and limited-time quests where you’ll be able to obtain special loot to show off to friends.

You can pre-register for Sword Art Online: Integral Factor through the Google Play and App Store right now if you fancy a go once its released.

I had a chance to play a brief amount of Integral Factor and it seems like an enjoyable RPG that works well for mobile.

Simplistic controls, pleasant visuals and what I hope is a robust quest system help it stand out amongst the competition.

Another highlight from Bandai Namco’s forthcoming mobile titles is Dragon Ball Legends, a thrilling fighter with an iconic anime aesthetic.
