New Character Revealed for Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris
Bandai Namco has released a new trailer for the latest Sword Art Online game, Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris. The video introduces a brand new character appearing in the game, Medina Orthinanos. Bandai Namco also announced a worldwide costume design contest, where fans can submit designs for outfits that may be used in the game. Entries can be submitted until September 6, 2019, with more details available on the contest web page.
Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris is being developed by Aquria, which previously created Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment and Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization.
