Kirito dual wields his way through the shadows of Mementos
During a special Sword Art Online themed live stream on the official Dengeki YouTube channel on February 4, the first bits of information of the collaboration – which was teased on January 13 – between Sword Art Online and Persona 5 was unmasked, including a brand new trailer showing off Kirito working with the Phantom Thieves in Sword Art Online: Memory Defrag, and Kirito in Mementos taking on the shadows in Sword Art Online: Integral Factor.
The trailer teases special Phantom Thieves costumes for the main cast of Sword Art Online, as well as an appearance from Kasumi from Persona 5 Royal, which recently released in Japan on October 31, and is set to be released in the west on March 31.
Which pairing of characters do you want to see the most from each franchise? I personally think Shion and Futaba would get along great!
