Another Sword Art Online game is coming to mobile! Following IntegralFactor, Sword Art Online: Variant Showdown is coming soon to Android and more.
Months after the announcement, pre-registration for Sword Art Online: Variant Showdown is now available. Does that interest you? We hope so!
Sword Art Online: Pre-Registration Variant Showdown
Variant Showdown is based on the beloved anime series and is the latest game in the SAO series. Set after the series’ Alicization Arc, this new mobile game lets you play an all-new story in this massive franchise.
You play as a created character delving into the fictional VRMMO game Cross Edge. Along with Kirito, Asura, and more, you’ll have to fight your way through dungeons, massive bosses, and more. Are you ready for the real thing?
Playable in a third-person perspective, this new SAO game is a frenetic action game. Like the rest of the franchise’s surprisingly solid games, this title will be another skill-based RPG. In addition, the gameplay is heavily based on the show’s combat.
You work together with the gang from the anime, with each member having their own fighting styles. Through combat, you level up and acquire new skills, not only for you, but also for your party members. You’re all in this together!
There is still no release date for the game, except for later this year. However, as pre-registration is now active, we expect the game to launch well in the coming weeks. If you can’t wait, maybe watch a trailer or something!

As far as we know, there will be pre-registration rewards for Sword Art Online: Variant Showdown. However, developer Bandai Namco has not released any information about what they will be.
Plus, since we don’t know exactly how the game plays, we can’t even imagine what they would be. On the other hand, if you register early, you are likely to get some premium currency and other goodies.
If you do want to pre-register for the upcoming SAO game, click here! You can register for the game on the mobile store page. This means that the game will be downloaded to your device as soon as it is released!
Sword Art Online: Variant Showdown is a 10-year anniversary celebration for the franchise. With this in mind, we beg it’s all right… in the interest of the fans.
