Sword Art Online Season 2 Phantom Bullet Airs in July
Season 2 of Sword Art Online, also referred to by some as Gun Gale Online, will be airing July 2014. Sword Art Online was one of the best Anime of 2012-2013, and for good reason. A compelling story, great characters and stunning visuals made Sword Art Online one of the best anime to come along in quite some time.
The new arc has the subtitle “Phantom Bullet”. At the end of Season one Kirito the main protagonist uploaded the World Seed allowing anyone to make an VMMORPG of their own. As a result multple VMMORPG worlds exist including the world of Gun Gale Online where the series will be taking place directly following the events of SAO.
Sword Art Online Season 2 Details
One of the main events in GGO is the multi-player versus player tournament known as the Bullet of Bullets (BoB).
Gun Gale Online» (ガンゲイル・オンライン, Gangeiru Onrain?, abbreviated as GGO) is a VRMMOFPS, developed and operated by an American company called Zasker, that emphasizes on gun usage. It is the setting for the Phantom Bullet Arc (Volume 5 and 6).
The basis of the game’s gameplay is to increase one’s level, which in turn increases stats that are increased based on player’s choices. These stats determine how a character plays and operates in the game, the interval selection can not be altered later, so players must know how they wish to develop in the long-term.
- AGI (Agility) – determines movement speed of a character
- VIT (Vitality) – determines health of a character
- DEX (Dexterity) – determines accuracy of a player and ability to hit targets
- STR (Strength) – determines the carrying capacity and ability to wield certain guns
- DEF (Defense) – determines the defense of a player
GGO is very different than Sword Art Online not only in the setting but the fact that it uses Guns as the primary weaponry. This will be interesting considering Kirito’s preference for bladed combat and his proficiency in it.
