Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet (ソードアート・オンライン フイタル・バレット, Sōdo Āto Onrain Feitaru Baretto?) is a Third Person Shooter Role-Playing Game (TPSRPG), released on February 8, 2018[citation needed] on the PlayStation 4 for Japan, and 23rd of February on Playstation 4, XBox One, as well as Personal Computers (PCs) via Steam worldwide[1][2]. The game is being developed by Dimps, based on Unreal Engine 4,[3][4] and is set in Gun Gale Online.[5] It is the first Sword Art Online TPSRPG and the first Sword Art Online game on the Xbox One platform.[citation needed]

Game StructureEdit

Fatal Bullet follows the events of Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization and takes place in Gun Gale Online, a game released by Zaskar following the advent of The Seed. The base game includes two modes: the Main Story, which follows the player's custom character, and Kirito Mode, a mini-campaign focusing on Kirito where the Death Gun incident is adapted to fit the Gameverse. The two modes are accompanied by side events, focusing both on the main Gameverse cast, and the Fatal Bullet original cast. The final chapter of the main campaign also offers two default endings, depending on the player's choices, as well as a canon True Ending.

Sword Art Online Fatal Bullet has introduced three additional story campaigns via additional paid Downloadable Content (DLC). The first DLC, titled Champion of Gunfire (銃火の覇者, Jūka no Hasha?) in Japan and Ambush of the Imposters in the West, takes place before the later episodes of the game. The second DLC, titled Creator of Entrenchments (壕陣の造手, Goujin no Zoushu?) in Japan and Betrayal of Comrades in the West, follows up on the story of first DLC. The third DLC, titled Pilot of the Machine (機駆の馭者, Kiku no Gyosha?) in Japan and Collapse of Balance in the West, concludes the trilogy of prequel content additions.

Fatal Bullet also has an upcoming expansion pack, titled The Diva of the Snow Fields (雪原の歌姫, Setsugen no Utahime?) in Japan and Dissonance of the Nexus in the West. The story of this expansion pack will take place after the ending of the base game.

Kureha in SBC Glocken

Cutscene of Kureha welcoming the Protagonist to Gun Gale Online

Upon spawning in Gun Gale Online (GGO) for the first time, the Protagonist was amazed by SBC Glocken and its residents. Moments later, they were greeted by a girl in a pink outfit, who apologized for being late due to the tournament registration taking longer than she had expected. As she looked different from her real life persona and had a different name, the girl introduced herself as Kureha, the Protagonist's childhood friend. After introducing them to GGO and explaining the basics, Kureha led the way to the tournament area, where both of them were to participate together as a team.

On their way to the tournament, the Protagonist and Kureha met Itsuki, one of the top players in GGO, whom they later crossed paths with inside the tournament map. Highlighting his unluckiness, Itsuki did not wish to confront the boss in the next room and thus made a deal with them. As part of the deal, the Protagonist and Kureha defeated the boss, while Itsuki refrained from attacking them, as well as allowed them to be the first to choose their path at the next crossroad.

After parting with Itsuki, Kureha reminded the Protagonist of the need to be vigilant, since not everyone would be as nice as Itsuki. Just as Kureha highlighted that the rare item was their goal, the two stumbled upon a dormant teleporter. As the Protagonist waited in the middle of the room, Kureha jumped up to the console and accidentally teleported the Protagonist to another room while attempting to deduce how the controls worked.

While exploring the new room, the Protagonist found a strange capsule. Upon touching it, they were informed by the game's system that the Master Registration process had been completed. At that moment, the capsule rose upright and its lid slid open, revealing an Artificial Financial Adviser System Unit, or Afasys (ArFA-Sys in the Western localization) for short. As the Protagonist watched in awe, the Afasys Unit soared up, before promptly beginning to fall. At that instant, a weapon targeting the Protagonist missed its mark due to the Protagonist rushing to the Afasys Unit.

Kirito ModeEdit

Intrigued by the UFG device in the Protagonist's possession, Kirito decided to have a conversation with them regarding the weapon. Following a discussion on the advantages of the UFG in Player versus Player combat, the Protagonist introduced the topic of Death Gun, stating he had his own tricks as well. As Kirito was concerned about the possibility of encountering Death Gun, the Protagonist offered to lend his UFG to the swordsman during the Protagonist's offline hours to be better prepared for battle with him.

Some time later at his home, Kirito spoke to Asuna and Yui about his decision to investigate the Death Gun incident. Although Asuna offered her help in the upcoming battle, Kirito declined the offer, citing safety concerns, as members of their group could become possible targets, which was why Kikuoka Seijirou had prepared a new account for him. Although Kirito held suspicions about Seijirou's job offer based on his resources and ties with the government, he admitted to Asuna that he agreed to it due to the good pay.

After parting with Asuna and Yui, Kirito switched from his personal account to the one created by Seijirou to use against Death Gun. Upon spawning in Governor's Lobby as Kiriko, Kirito realized how feminine his new avatar looked, which resulted in attracting two other male players. Moments later, Sinon noticed the scene and decided to intervene, believing that Kiriko was a female player who was being harassed. As Kiriko discovered that Sinon was also registering for the Bullet of Bullets (BoB) tournament, he decided to keep his identity a secret for the time being.

After a brief dialogue with Sinon's friend Spiegel and still unaware that Kiriko was Kirito, Sinon guided him into the female dressing room, where she began changing her outfit. Due to the awkwardness of the situation, Kirito decided to reveal his identity to her, explaining that he was using a different avatar in order to confront Death Gun.

Once the preliminaries began, Kiriko decided to avoid attracting unwanted attention as he defeated his opponent in the first qualification round. In the aftermath of the battle, a guy dressed in a ragged cloak confronted him in the lobby while he was waiting for Sinon's results. Having recognized the sword technique Kirito had used in the first preliminary round, the man referred to Kirito by his actual in-game name, rather than his current Kiriko avatar name. Due to the man's knowledge of his sword techniques, Kirito became certain he knew this person from either Sword Art: Origin (SA:O) or ALfheim Online (ALO), the sword-based games he had played before. However, upon witnessing the man's Laughing Coffin tattoo, Kirito realized that the player was actually one of the Player Killers (PKers) from Sword Art Online.

Moments later, having finished her first match, Sinon found Kirito in the lobby, looking very pale and unfocused. Upon returning to his senses, Kirito informed Sinon about his encounter with Death Gun, explaining what Laughing Coffin had committed in Sword Art Online before Sinon appeared in Aincrad on Floor 76. Kirito also shared his regret at not even remembering the names and the faces of the people he had killed during the assault on Laughing Coffin. In the aftermath of the second and final preliminaries match, Kirito realized that the voice of the player with the ragged cloak matched that of the sound recording of Death Gun that Kikuoka Seijirou had provided him with. Recalling that he had crossed swords with the man before, Kirito deduced that Death Gun was a high ranking Laughing Coffin member, yet he was still unable to remember his name.

Following his conversation with Sinon, Kirito was transported to the middle of a desert on the Solitary Sands map for the main Bullet of Bullets tournament. Assuming that he would not be targeted immediately, Kirito carefully started heading to the center of the map in hopes of finding Sinon. Meanwhile, having spawned in a different area, Sinon decided to avoid conflict until she was able to regroup with Kirito. However, upon encountering two other players dueling each other in the distance, Sinon noticed that one of them was wearing a ragged cloak, immediately realizing that he was Death Gun. Although she considered approaching the two players to inspect Death Gun's avatar name, the girl realized that the other player, Pale Rider, was in trouble and decided to kill him first. This action saved Pale Rider's life by not allowing him to die against Death Gun, yet it also revealed Sinon's position, prompting her to relocate to avoid being targeted by the cloaked man.

Meanwhile, Kirito's friends not participating in the tournament were watching the tournament in his room, immediately recognizing Kiriko as Kirito based on his swordsmanship. Just as Yuuki attempted to take a screenshot of Kiriko, the feed changed to a different camera, displaying Sinon. While most expressed surprise at Sinon having joined the Bullet of Bullets, Agil suddenly requested to rewind the feed, bringing the Laughing Coffin logo of Death Gun to their attention. Upon this revelation, Asuna left the room to inform Seijirou.

Back in Gun Gale Online, Kirito reached the center of the map. Assuming that Sinon was already in a good sniping position, he headed straight to the most favorable location he could find, only to find Sinon struggling against Death Gun. Upon Death Gun's question, Kirito revealed that he was using the Kiriko account and read the name of Death Gun as “Steven”. Growing more confident that Kirito did not remember his name, Death Gun planned challenge him to a duel. However, due to a sudden increase of players fighting right below the platform they were on, the cloaked man deemed the location unsuitable to dispense his judgement and thus decided to retreat, leaving Kirito to deal with other players gaining on their location.

After the fight, Sinon and Kirito took shelter in a cave, as Sinon explained how powerless she felt when she froze against Death Gun and the firearm he was using. She shared her memories of when she killed the robber of a bank with that gun and how that event left her traumatized. She wanted to fight back, but Kirito interjected, saying it was too dangerous. When Sinon mentioned her real body was safe at her home, Kirito thought about how Death Gun might have been killing people in GGO. He explained that Death Gun most certainly had an accomplice in real world, killing people at their homes, when he pulls his trigger in GGO.

With this theory mentioned, Sinon remembered that people who want to receive rewards based on their success in BoB, were able to enter their real life information, including their addresses on the registration form. Sinon suddenly got shaken by the realization that she too had entered her information to Zaskar database. Kirito tried to ease her concerns by reminding her that Death Gun was the first one to kill among all cases, specifically with his handgun, rather than his real life accomplice. He suggested Sinon should stay far and safe as he went out to lure Death Gun to an open location.

Being confronted by Kirito on the field, Death Gun looked unshaken even after Kirito told him he found out their secret. As long as Kirito had not remembered his name, Death Gun was safe. He surprised Kirito further by drawing his handcrafted sword, but also gave him a lead on remembering his name based on the style of the sword, an estoc.

Death Gun continued to tease Kirito and reminded him of their confrontation in Aincrad. Death Gun had told him his name back then, but Kirito had not listened to him, thus did not even know his name. As their fight continued, Death Gun talked about his promise to Kirito, which made him recall that they met sometime after SAO, in Origin, when somebody logged in on the account of Richter. At that point, Kirito also remembered that he participated in the pre-assault meeting where Asuna mentioned an estoc user from Laughing Coffin. He recited the names of high-ranking Laughing Coffin officers, Johnny Black who used poison knives and another player who had red hair and eyes, and used an estoc.

Both charged at each other, Death Gun, quickly knocking Kirito's handgun off his hand with a quick thrust, used a Sword Skill to push him further away. Kirito charged back and locked his sword with Death Gun's estoc. Coming eye to eye with him, Kirito remembered the name of the player as Red-Eyed XaXa and shouted the name at his face. Hearing his name and realizing that he now could be found by the Ministry of Internal Affairs via the Aincrad logs, Death Gun lost his balance and stepped back.

While both parties were weighing each other, standing still, Sinon aimed at Death Gun with her sniper, generating a Bullet Line that distracted him and made him take his eye off of Kirito. As Death Gun dodged backwards and tried using his camouflage cloak, Kirito rushed forward, grabbed his pistol from the ground and shot at Death Gun to prevent him from cloaking. Before he could gain his balance back, Kirito slashed Death Gun and his handgun in half in one slash.

Before getting shattered into polygons, Death Gun used his final moment to threaten Kirito, mentioning he was not acting alone and that he would suffer. Sinon came to Kirito and shared her worries that Death Gun's accomplice may be standing right next to her right now at her home. Kirito promised he would come to check her after they log off and that the hospital he was logging in from was nearby. To end the tournament, Sinon used a parting grenade to take them both out at the same time, resulting in both of them getting crowned as winners.

Asada Shino woke up from her dive on her bed and started checking around to ensure she was safe. Shortly after, Shinkawa Kyouji rang the doorbell and Shino opened the door for him. Taking a seat inside, Kyouji started asking about Shino's feelings towards him and Kirito. Going crazy over his jealousy, Kyouji tried injecting Shino with a syringe. Before Kyouji could succeed, Kirito appeared in Shino's apartment to prevent him and police sirens started coming from outside.

When they logged back in afterwards, everyone was in Kirito's room to congratulate them both on winning BoB. Kirito explained how Death Gun operated, as he learned from Seijirou that there were 2 people acting as Death Gun. Shinkawa Kyouji, known as Spiegel in GGO and as Richter in Origin, and his older brother, Shinkawa Shouichi, who was the Laughing Coffin member, Red-Eyed XaXa from Aincrad. They were operating Death Gun from the account named Sterben, rather than Steven. He also learnt about his cloak that had an ability called Metamaterial Optical Camouflage, which allowed him to turn invisible and how he used this to read up on the personal information that people were entering on their registration form.

Seijirou also mentioned that Shinkawa brothers claimed they had not stolen any NerveGears and the earlier reports of stolen NerveGears were in fact not originating from them. Kirito attempted to tell the Protagonist to warn others regarding situation, but realized that they were not in the room and neither were Kureha, Zeliska and Itsuki. When Yui attempted to message Afasys, she received an error that she no longer was in GGO.

Since none of them were answering their messages either and nobody had their real life information, it was impossible to contact any of them. Yui decided to investigate their whereabouts and asked Strea and Premiere to help her. Premiere decided to ask Seven for assistance. While Sinon and Leafa wanted to search around GGO to find them, Kirito told them that he had a bad feeling and that they should prepare for a fight instead.
