Madman Entertainment have confirmed to us at StG that there will be a New Zealand release of the highly anticipated, first ever SWORD ART ONLINE movie: SWORD ART ONLINE: ORDINAL SCALE.

The film will follow Kirito and Asuna in an all-new story that takes place after the Mother’s Rosario arc.

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, and soon Kirito decides to join them. However, they’re about to find out that Ordinal Scale isn’t all fun and games…

SWORD ART ONLINE: ORDINAL SCALE will be releasing to New Zealand cinemas on the 9th of March, 2017.
