“Sword Art Online The Movie: Ordinal Scale” DVD/Blu-ray Comes with Sequel Novel

Aniplex confirmed today that the perfect limited edition of the upcoming DVD/Blu-ray of Sword Art Online The Movie: Ordinal Scale to be released in Japan on September 27 comes with a newly-written novel Sword Art Online: Cordial Code by the original novel author Reki Kawahara with illustrations by the novel illustrator abec.

 

The sequel story is set eight days after the “Ordinal Scale” incident told in the film. Kirito finally decides to retire from Ordinal Scale, and when he starts initializing the data, he receives a new message from Yuna for her desktop mascot app. Kirito automatically tries to install it and to say good-by to the AR idol, but she says, “Kirito, help me.” with mysterious gestures. Is this just a gimmick of the app, or…? To find out the truth, Kirito goes to see a man.
