Comedian Yusuke Inoue Becomes a Hero for Sword Art Online Crossover

Monster Strike game collab lets you become Kirito


Thanks to a collaboration between Sword Art Online and popular mobile game Monster Strike, anyone can be Kirito. And to show that off, the game has recruited comedian Yusuke Inoue for their latest commercial.


The upcoming series of CMs will see the celeb kitted out in full SAO style, dubbing himself "Kirito Inoue" and throwing himself completely into the hero's role. His story will progress over multiple videos.


Fans will also be able to influence the "story" to some degree via Twitter, voting on what they want to say to Kirito Inoue to invite him to your party in Monster Strike.

The new campaign exists in part to celebrate the announcement of Sword Art Online -Alicization-.
