A sequel to Sword Art Online has been announced following the ending of Sword Art Online: Extra Edition, a special OVA (Original Video Animation) episode that was aired just before the new years.
Titled Sword Art Online II
, the anime will kick off with a brand new game in which Kirito joins called Gun Gale Online (GGO). Designed by an American company called Zakar, GGO's primary choice of weapons are of course Guns making it a bit different from SAO and ALfeim which traditionally used Swords and magic as a means of combat.
In addition to the announcement, the official website
revealed some more information about the Second Series including a title to the new arc - "Phantom Bullet" as well as a promotional video (PV) which confirms the 2014 air date alongside a short teaser of the brand new heroine, Asada Shino's avatar.
