Based on the popular anime franchise, Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet introduces third-person shooter action along with the traditional RPG gameplay.

Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet brings an exciting twist to the popular action RPG series by adding third-person shooter elements into the game, forming a unique hybrid shooter/RPG/action title that balances gun and sword play with skill and gadget combat to create a new dynamic experience.

Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet will feature an engrossing, original story supervised by Sword Art Online creator Reki Kawahara, that takes players into the world of “Gun Gale Online,” from the popular Sword Art Online II season of the series.

Players will be able to dive right into the immersive landscape developed by Dimps, and enjoy robust environments and textures powered by Unreal Engine 4. Using agile double jumps, air dashes, wall-to-wall repelling, and quick weapon swapping, players will engage in brisk platforming and shooting gameplay as they embark on epic adventures. Rounding out the package, full multiplayer cooperative and competitive modes will let two to eight players collaborate and compete against one another online.


Invited by a childhood friend Kureha, the protagonist will log in a world of guns through Gun Gale Online game. Unexpectedly he obtains ArFA-Sys, a newly implemented player support AI, and meets Kirito who requests his help to conquer the additional dungeon of the spaceship SBC Flügel. The protagonist has to collect all the key “ArFA-Sys parts” and fulfill the SBC Flügel requirements before heading to the spaceship.

In the middle of the adventure, they meet several characters such as Bazalt Joe a talented player, Zeliska also called the Uncrowned Queen who has the same Typ-X ArFA-Sys and the famous Squadron leader Itsuki who joins the group. Bazalt Joe has an obsession for the protagonist’s ArFA-Sys that he would like to own. To achieve his goal, he challenges the protagonist several time. While dealing with Bazalt Joe, the protagonist continues progressing in the conquest and finally reaches the SBC Flügel gate.

The SBC Flügel challenge becomes available but everyone wants to take it. To decide the winners the group plays rock-paper-scissors. The protagonist, Kirito, Kureha and ArFA-Sys win getting the right to challenge the gate!

Guns like the hand gun, sub machine gun, shotgun, assault rifle and launcher can be equipped on both hands and will double the power! Each weapon type has special techniques called “Weapon Arts” that can be purchased from Argo.
