In the tradition of Bandai Namco, two new characters will arrive as downloadable content in Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris.
As it is about this franchise, we have two waifus from the club of girls rejected by Kirito, allies of the protagonist for his adventures. In this case they are Strea and Philia, two exclusive warriors for the SAO video game universe.
Strea makes her debut in the PSP title Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment, as an opponent in the ascent of the 100 floors of Aincrad. After meeting her on the 76th floor, she becomes an ally of the isekai hero.
Philia begins her adventure in the next iteration of the series, Hollow Fragment, for PS Vita and PS4. After a collision in the mysterious space of the Hollow Area, Kirito and Philia become allies, becoming one of the companions who take Asuna’s place when she is not there.
Both are part of the Mysotis DLC of the current title of the series, available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. This content was featured on Bandai Namco’s special panel at Tokyo Game Show 2020, leaving fans ready for new heroines to accompany the leads of the world’s most popular isekai series.
Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris is the sixth game in the action RPG series based on the Japanese megafranchise. Spanning the world of light novels, manga and anime, the series is known globally and is the cornerstone of one of the dominant genres of Japanese entertainment.
Although it has existed since before its premiere, the isekai as we know it today would not exist without the massive success of this series, marking a generation of fans around the world and ensuring that an anime of this style is never missing in every season.
