Aniplex is doing it again. Sword Art Online has its highly anticipated movie to hit select theaters across the US today. Already released in Japan in February, and heading to Canada March 17, 2017; cosplayers, enthusiasts, and fans are eager to see this new addition of the animated series and manga. With the premiere tickets for the US market selling out last year, very few theaters will be releasing the movie tonight and on going for just a few weeks across the nation. It is suggested to get your tickets and confirm on the SAO site to make sure you have correct locations and times. For more info visit: http://sao-movie.net/us/
The latest trailer gives more of an in depth look at new characters, objectives, and reference points that will keep any avid MMO player glued as they can get a sense of what it would be like to be in a VRMMORPG (Virtual Reality Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game). Sword Art Online is based of the original manga made by Reki Kawahara and illustrated by Abec in 2009.
As of yesterday, more movie theaters have been added to appease more fans, however check the dates to make sure it will be available to you. If it is not showing in your area, call your local theater and see if there is a request list to bring it to your town.
