Just before the Japanese theatrical release of “Sword Art Online Progressive The Movie: Aria of the Starless Night,” Japanese company Aniplex released a special teaser video that you can watch below in this article.
SAO: Progressive Movie to be Released in a Few Days
For the 15-second teaser, they collaborated with Freelancer news anchor Chiaki Matsuzawa, who also works on real news shows in Japan. In the video, Matsuzawa reports that players who entered the “Sword Art Online” game with the new Full Dive headset will not be able to return to the real world.
Although this news is indeed very worrying, the video in the corner indicates that it is just a commercial for the theatrical release of “Sword Art Online Progressive The Movie: Aria of the Starless Night” on October 30, 2021.
The film, which is a more detailed telling of the “Aincrad” arc, was created under the direction of director Ayako Kawano (“High School Fleet Movie”) at Studio A-1 Pictures. Within the next few months, the big-screen spin-off is scheduled to launch in more than 40 countries and territories.
