    Thanks for the heads up!

    First impressions are that it looks much prettier than Hollow Fragment.

    Let's see how the aerial combat plays out. Hopefully it won't be another Dragon Ball Battle of the whateveritwas.

    I imagine it'll have a sort of free flight mode, than when you engage an enemy it'll lock you at their elevation if you are attacking.

    I could be way off though.

    EDIT: The graphics look much improved, Hollow Fragment was just a super enhanced version of Infinity Movement, so not too surprised it looks better.

    I'm really pumped, 2015 could be really sweet if we get a few localizations. Danganronpa Another Episode, Digimon, maybe Lost Song (very) late in the year. Chaos Rings Trilogy, Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 2 & potentially 3.

    I keep thinking of Hollow Fragment's gameplay... but add flying and magic. If they allow us to change Kirito's race too... the different magics we could use would be awesome.

    Sword Art Online Hollow Fragment has shipped 400k units worldwide. Should be noted that EU and NA did not get a physical release, so it's sales numbers are not counted in there.

    Considering Hollow Fragment was the number 1 selling digital title in August and September for the Vita, I think there is a really good chance of Lost Song making its way over.

    It does sound freakin awesome. As with SAO HF, this will probably be the first game I import, unless a localization is announced before the title is released.

    I've updated the original post with some new direct feed pics.

    I think it does look much better than Hollow Fragment.
    From what was said in the latest episode of SAOII, sword skills can be expected to return in Lost Song.

    Well I am sure they are, with a bit of PR touch up done to them. :)

    If no western version is announced by the time LS hit's its Asia release date I'll probably import it day 1.... I still might import it anyways and maybe just buy it twice if it gets a retail version in the US.
