Sword Art Online Exhibit Lets You Fight Goblins with Mo-Cap Swordplay

See another aspect of next month's interactive exhibits

Sword Art Online


Last month saw the reveal of plans for an interactive exhibit that celebrates the 10th anniversary of Reki Kawahara's Sword Art Online franchise. Ticket sales recently went live for the AKIBA_SQUARE exhibit ahead of next month's opening, and one of the latest attractions to be previewed promises plenty of sword-swinging action.


With the help of motion capture technology, fans can step up and test their might in the Swordskill Challenge, which will have them moving their bodies in an attempt to fend off Goblins. Pictured below, this portion of the exhibit uses CG models of Kirito and Eugeo from the upcoming Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris game. 



The Swordskill Challenge will be available near the entrance of the exhibit, and applications are being accepted until 11:59pm JST on July 28. Lottery results will be announced on July 30, and winners will be able to try out the Swordskill Challenge without buying a ticket to the full Sword Art Online EX-CHRONICLE exhibit.

It all goes down at AKIBA-SQUARE in Akihabara from August 4-18, so it's about time to book that flight to Tokyo!
