Dengeki Online has uncovered new details concerning Sword Art Online Re: Hollow Fragment and Sword Art Online: Lost Song.
It compares several shots between Sword Art Online Re: Hollow Fragment on the PS4 (top) and the original Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment release on the Vita (bottom). Character models and environments have been noticeably improved.
Meanwhile, Sword Art Online: Lost Song has received more subtle changes in its transition to the PS4. These include more NPCs in Sky City Line to increase its sense of liveliness, more pronounced foliage, and an increased number of enemies on screen.
Furthermore, Sword Art Online Re: Hollow Fragment will now include online multiplayer support, since Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment only supported ad-hoc multiplayer on the Vita. Several bosses from Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment have also seen some changes in Sword Art Online Re: Hollow Fragment so players must beware when fighting seemingly familiar foes.
Lastly, players who have saves from Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment on the Vita can import them to Sword Art Online Re: Hollow Fragment. The following data will be transferred over:
- Player's level (up to 199)
- Player's money (up to 99,999,999 Col)
- All of the player's items including equipment and other possessions
- Avatar information
- Heroine's level along with all other player levels
Clear flags, DLC items, and other event items will not be transferred over. All players must start over from the beginning of the game. All hope is not lost! It has been mentioned that DLC items from the Vita version will eventually be unlocked in the PS4 version at a later date though.
Sword Art Online Re: Hollow Fragment hits the Playstation 4 this summer only on Playstation Network in North America and Europe. Sword Art Online: Lost Song releases in fall shortly after for the Playstation 4 and Playstation Vita through retail and digital stores.
