In other news, the Sword Art Online Alicization anime concluded its airing on September 19, 2020. The final episode ended with an announcement for a Sword Art Online Progressive anime adaptation. The first Progressive story adaptation into animated format is confirmed to be a movie rendition of Aria of a Starless Night, the 1st Floor story that the anime greatly abridged for Episode 02 of the first season of the anime, from Asuna's perspective. The Sword Art Online Alicization -After War- special event in Japan on November 8, 2020 also revealed a new trailer for the upcoming movie.

On that note, the final Alicization War of Underworld anime Blu-Ray/DVD has been released. It contains an original side story by the series's author Kawahara Reki. The side story is titled "If We Could Walk Together" and is the third installment in an alternative Alicization timeline series by the author, answering the question of what would have happened had Eugeo and Kirito never broken the Taboo Index and instead became Integrity Knights.

In older news, Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris, the supposedly final game in the SAO game series, was released in Japan on July 9, 2020 (for the PlayStation consoles) and in the West on July 10, 2020.

The secret ending also included an English version of the game's opening song, Scar/let, which was also released for purchase on September 19, 2020. As of Ver1.09 of the game, the true ending has become available for all players of the game without the secret unlock conditions. The game has also opened its microtransaction store for cosmetic items. Kirito's iconic swords from the entire series and Hollow Realization Paragon weapons have also been added to the CUBE lineup. On that note, a trailer on the game's upcoming free and DLC content was unveiled at the Tokyo Game Show 2020 on September 27, 2020. The event also unveiled plot teasers for the four-part free DLC. Each of the free DLC will focus on a different set of supporting characters. The first installment of the free DLCs is scheduled for late December release.

«Introduction»

A huge castle made of stone and steel floating in an endless sky. That was all this world was.

It took a vagarious group of craftsmen one month to survey the place; the diameter of the base floor was about 10 kilometers — large enough to fit the entirety of Setagaya-ku within. Above, there were 100 floors stacking straight upwards; its sheer size was unbelievable. It was impossible to even guess how much data it consisted of.

Inside, there were a couple of large cities along with countless small scale towns and villages, forests and plains, and even lakes. Only one stairway linked each floor to another, and the stairways existed in dungeons where large numbers of monsters roamed; so discovering and getting through was no easy matter. However, once someone made a breakthrough and arrived at a city of the upper floor, the «Teleport Gates» there and of every cities in the lower floors would be connected making it possible for anyone to move freely through these levels.

With these conditions, the huge castle had been steadily conquered for two years. The current front line is the 74th floor.

The name of the castle was «Aincrad», a world of battles with swords that continued floating and had engulfed approximately six thousand people. Otherwise known as...
