“Sword Art Online: Memory Defrag” Launches on iOS and Android in the West

Mobile action-RPG Sword Art Online: Memory Defrag originally launched in Japan last August, and Bandai Namco followed up with western release plans in October. Now it’s officially available on iOS and Android, offering up a mix of the original anime’s story and an all-new story created specifically for the game. 


For a limited time, those who download Memory Defrag will receive in-game rewards like special items, character unlocks, and more. Check out the trailer and official description below.



Utilizing an intuitive gesture system, SWORD ART ONLINE: Memory Defrag brings intense adventure and fast-paced action that fans will love. With a series of taps and flicks, players can execute a variety of actions, unleashing a number of attacks using a selection of one-handed and dual-wielding weapons and skills, including swords, guns, bows, and magic. Gamers can tailor their weapon loadouts and skills to their unique playstyles, and master characters’ moves to take on the increasingly challenging bosses and dungeons that await them in the virtual worlds of Sword Art Online.
