The worlds of SWORD ART ONLINE and ACCEL WORLD have begun to merge!

Players will build out three-person teams with their favorite characters, all with unique special abilities, from both the SWORD ART ONLINE and ACCEL WORLD series.
SWORD ART ONLINE characters will be able to utilize the fairy flight mechanic from ALfheim Online as well as magic, while ACCEL WORLD characters will have access to Acceleration and special techniques. By mixing and matching characters from both worlds, players will be able to create an unstoppable team as they take on an epic action role-playing game adventure. Players will also be able to team up with three other friends to battle rivals in fierce online multiplayer modes.
Bandai Namco announced that Accel World vs Sword Art Online: Millennium Twilight will be released for both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. However, Bandai Namco's asset batch also included a box art for a Steam/PC version.
