Sword Art Online the Movie -Ordinal Scale-

 

Synopsis:

In 2022, the world of virtual reality was upended by the arrival of a new invention from a genius programmer, Akihiko Kayaba. Called NerveGear, it was the first full-dive system and with it, came endless possibilities to VRMMORPGs.

 

In 2026, a new machine called the Augma is developed to compete against the NerveGear and its successor, the Amusphere. A next-gen wearable device, the Augma doesn't have a full-dive function like its predecessors. Instead, it uses Augmented Reality (AR) to get players into the game. It is safe, user-friendly and lets users play while they are conscious, making it an instant hit on the market. The most popular game on the system is “Ordinal Scale” (aka: OS), an ARMMORPG developed exclusively for the Augma.

 

Asuna and the gang have already been playing OS for a while, by the time Kirito decides to join them. They’re about to find out that Ordinal Scale isn’t all fun and games…

 

Sword Art Online the Movie -Ordinal Scale- first opened in Japan in February 2017. Tomohiko Ito directs the film—based on a screenplay by Ito and original Sword Art Online creator Reki Kawahara—at anime production house A-1 Pictures. 

 

If you want to follow this up with the latest theatrical adventure, tickets for Sword Art Online the Movie -Progressive- Aria of a Starless Night go on sale starting on November 12.
