SWORD ART ONLINE: PROGRESSIVE A New Trailer Has Started Streaming For The new Anime Film

The first official promo for Sword Art Online: Progressive has confirmed that it will be an anime film. Hit the jump to check out the brand new footage!

The story of Sword Art Online has become one of the most popular and fastest-growing franchises in Japan. While there have been multiple spin-offs and other series with the same name, it is widely regarded that the original story by Reki Kawahara, was the most adored by the audience as a whole, and the anime added to that adoration.

Now, since there has been so much that has released between the first episode and now, it seems right to go back to the story that started it all but look at it under a larger microscope. Sword Art Online: Progressive, is a series that goes back to the first story but examines each floor that Kirito and Asuna must brave in the deadly virtual world. 

Not long after the release of the series, it was confirmed that an anime would also be coming out to tell the story again. Now, with a new visual and trailer released, the anime has been announced to be a film and will be titled Sword Art Online Progressive THE MOVIE: Aria of a Starless Night. SAO: Alicization character designer,  Kento Toya is coming back to the franchise, and new director, Ayako Kawano will be helming the feature.

The new footage shows a much more polished world compared to the original series and is sure to be another hit for the franchise that has produced some pretty impressive adaptions. We would love to hear your thoughts on the news and trailer in the comments below!

'There's no way to beat this game. The only difference is when and where you die...' One month has passed since Akihiko Kayaba's deadly game began, and the body count continues to rise. Two thousand players are already dead. Kirito and Asuna are two very different people, but they both desire to fight alone. Nonetheless, they find themselves drawn together to face challenges from both within and without. Given that the entire virtual world they now live in has been created as a deathtrap, the surviving players of Sword Art Online are starting to get desperate, and desperation makes them dangerous to loners like Kirito and Asuna. As it becomes clear that solitude equals suicide, will the two be able to overcome their differences to find the strength to believe in each other, and in so doing survive? Sword Art Online: Progressive is a new version of the Sword Art Online tale that starts at the beginning of Kirito and Asuna's epic adventure--on the very first level of the deadly world of Aincrad!  


Sword Art Online: Progressive THE MOVIE: Aria of a Starless Night will be hitting theaters in Japan in 2021!
