Sword Art Online Variant Showdown – Game is Now Live


Bandai Namco has announced the launch of the Japanese and Global English version of Sword Art Online Variant Showdown. Players who are interested in the game can download the game from your local App or Play Store.

Sword Art Online Variant Showdown is an Action RPG based on the Sword Art Online universe. Take control of characters straight out of the anime like Kirito and Asuna in ferocious 3D battles.

The game is set in a new game called Cross Edge that is supposedly causing memory loss to its players. Kirito and friends happened to hear about the game and decided to investigate the incident.

Good news if you plan to reroll as there are only 5 SSR characters in the game at launch. Furthermore, it is possible to get 2 or more SSR from the tutorial summon. Here is the tier list for Sword Art Online Variant Showdown:
