Further details on the previously announced original Sword Art Online movie were revealed at Sunday's Dengeki Bunko Spring Festival 2016. Titled Sword Art Online Movie: Ordinal Scale, it will open in theaters in Japan in 2017.

Aniplex will begin selling tickets for the movie at AnimeJapan 2016 at the end of March. Each ticket costs ¥1,500 and comes with a bonus B2 poster of the movie's key visual (pictured). Author Reki Kawahara and the movie's producers are also scheduled to attend Sakura-Con in Seattle on March 26 to provide more information.

Tomohiko Itou returns to direct the movie at animation studio A-1 Pictures. Animator Shingo Adachi is once again adapting the original character designs by abec, while Yuki Kajiura is composing the music. An official website has opened with more information on the setting of the new work.

Story
AR (Augmented Reality) Type Information Terminal "Augma" is a next-generation, wearable multi-device that looks like a pair of small headphones. In terms of size and portability, it is far superior to the existing VR machine Amusphere. Augma doesn't have a full-dive function; however, its AR function is greatly enhanced to compensate for it. It can transmit visual, audio, and tactual sensation data to players while they are awake, thus enabling the users to enjoy fitness and health management like a game.

Ordinal Scale is an ARMMORPG that was designed exclusively for Augma. Following its release, it has become the most discussed game due to its advanced technology. In this game, players can raise their rank by collecting items that appear in various places in the real world and by defeating monsters. This "Ranking System" is the main feature of the game, and in this system, each player's status is determined by their rank which is indicated by an ordinal number instead of a cardinal number. As the result, high ranking players are given overwhelming power, and often rank has become a major factor in deciding the outcome of a PvP battle.

It's clear it hasn't been started yet. It's all part of A-1's usual drown people in hype and propaganda strategy that is annoying as all fuck. Most producers don't feel they need a constant barrage of basically nothing to constantly remind people something exists and draw attention toward it.

Is this the sao movie that has season 3 material or something like that? Is it something I have to watch? It also seem like sao 3 will air sometimes in 2017.

Not much animated footage shown in the video. Besides the key visual, the character designs looks so-so to me.

It's anime-originals. Same with the upcoming Accel World and Mahouka movies.

2017 looks very far away for now. That means a third season sure is further away.

Why don't they just do season 3 instead? I'm pretty sure they have enough content.

The current arc is very long and still not finished, maybe they are waiting for it to finish in the LNs. It's longer than the content for 1st and 2nd season combined.

They get a new game this year so I wouldn't feel too bad for anyone. I mostly just consider it a miracle that any sort of anime thing is happening with Accel World considering it's one of the few light novel series I ever gave any sort of damn about and which I can count on a single hand. Also what can you expect from a studio consistently backed up on a bloated as fuck schedule of mostly crap for the last several years. Maybe if virtually every other adaptation didn't have to be done by A-1 Pictures now and Aniplex wasn't trying to run so many damn projects at the same time constantly and just drown people in it all you wouldn't have so many things backed up by years like say that Fate/Stay Night movie, but greed>proper scheduling/planning. A-1 is supposed to be doing a Granblue Fantasy promo anime which they announced but then admitted they currently have no plans to even put into production yet just an example of how fucked up things are.

Looking forward to it. There will probably be a lot of cool animated scenes, and I'm more likely to watch this than a third season because of length.

So wtf they are making a movie for the next arc & not a show?

Wow, that's kinda a letdown. Or maybe they are waiting for it to light novel to finish & then they will making a season 3 who knows.

Interesting new system, it actually sounds very cool! Maybe even something we could create someday in real life, now that we have stuff like Pokemon Go coming out.

Excited for the movie, bummed it's so far away.

I severely doubt it if for no other reason than Sunrise just doesn't seem to want to do much on TV nowadays.

So basically season 3 will happen around 2018?

Anyway, the plot of the film sounds utterly generic, but who knows?

Maybe they want to see if there is still interest in Accel world ? I mean making a season 2 is a lot of money right ? so if they see the movie did well they might have no choice but to green light season 2 I mean people hating an MC Because fat is such a dumb reason not to give a show a chance it makes that person seem like an idiot
( you understand right ?) I'm I like the crazy one here ?

I don't really care about this movie, I just want my Alicization adaptation. The fact that this movie comes out in 2017 kinda annoys me though, because it's pretty much certain Season 3 will come after that and not sooner.

Got my answer! Kinda bummed that it will be AO tho, but it won't hurt to watch some SAO every now and then. Movie quality animation will be a treat too.

Haven't heard of Mahouka movie tho, glad that you mentioned it. Oniisama God power in movie quality will be eyegasmic.

Finally, the trailer has been announced... and I'm totally hyped about this one, but what I'm really hoping is that some of the characters not being built again with another same plot lines. And... for that 2017 though (lol), well let's just wait for it, for SAO! :)

My reaction went just like this:

The S3 will most likely be announced at the end of the movie, just like with Extra Edition.

The movie is an anime original bonus story that kind of ties into how Accel World novels are connected to SAO, it seems

Welp, I guess that means I'm heading to Japan in 2017 then..

Since this is the missing link between Rosario and Alicization, Season 3 better be announced. Though with the amount of content that they have to cover for Alicization, they might as well announce Season 3 AND 4 together..... and maybe a Season 5 too :P
