During the Anime Expo 2016 even in Los Angeles, California, Aniplex of America showed a new trailer for one of the most awaited anime movies today, Sword Art Online the Movie: Ordinal Scale. The new trailer is also featured with English subtitles.
Set two years after the SAO incident and after the Maother’s Rosario arc, the movie is scheduled to premiere in Spring 2017. Aniplex of America also confirmed that the movie will be having an international release during the event, though details were not given. Here is the movie’s new visual, as illustrated by the anime’s character designer, Shingo Adachi
The film will feature an original story which will be set in a brand new game called “Ordinal Scale,” which uses a new augmented reality device known as “Augma.” According to the film’s official website, AR (Augmented Reality) Type Information Terminal “Augma” is a next-generation, wearable multi-device that looks like a pair of small headphones. In terms of size and portability, it is far superior to the existing VR machine “Amusphere.” Augma doesn’t have a full-dive function, however, its AR function is greatly enhanced to compensate for it. It can transmit visual, audio and tactual sensation data to players while they are awake, thus enabling the users to enjoy fitness and health management like a game.
