RPG Games – a relatively old but attractive concept and no kind of game can be replaced. Outstanding with role-playing gameplay and controlling the characters’ behavior, RPG always gives players the most realistic, most vivid experience, but also does not lose the fantasy and mystery elements. Players are able to enjoy things they once saw in real life. In this article, I will introduce you to an extremely attractive RPG game when you hear the name, surely you will recognize immediately: Sword Art Online Alicization Rising Steel. For gamers who are interested in anime, Sword Art Online is an extremely popular light novel series with eye-catching action scenes and engaging content. Developed by BANDAI NAMCO, Sword Art Online Alicization Rising Steel is a game adapted from the original SAO Alicization Series. The game promises to bring players an authentic and vivid experience from the main character’s perspective – Kirito.
A bit of a summary of the story, the Alicization part is the third season of SAO. After years of VR technology experience on the NerveGear machine, Kirito has now grown up and started working part-time for a Rath Company – a company specializing in researching new Full-Dive technology called Soul Translator. With this technology, researchers have created a virtual world called the Underworld. And Kirito is one of the first people tested in this technology. In that dimension, Kirito lived as a child growing up with Eugeo and Alice. On a clear day, the 3 of them discovered a cave together on the outskirts of the Human Territory. Also on this journey, accidentally touching his hand to the territory of darkness – a taboo place not to be violated in this world. Since then, Alice has been captured by the Integrity Knights and cannot return forever. During the testing period, Kirito in the real world did not have any memories of the Underworld. Therefore, whenever Kirito heard the name Alice, he felt uncomfortable because he could not remember this girl. On another day, on the way home from the cafe, Kirito and Asuna were attacked by Johnny Black – one of the survivors of the S.A.O game and had a feud with Kirito – suddenly attacking with a poison syringe. From now on, Kirito must live in the Underworld to preserve his life before the doctors find him a cure.
SAO Alicization Rising Steel has pure role-playing gameplay. Players will incarnate into the character Kirito and participate in the journey to discover and hunt for mysteries in the Underworld. In this game, players will participate in story missions, practice skills and fight with monsters or other characters in the game. Different from the original story in the light novel, players will have a unique and more detailed experience. According to some information revealed, the gameplay will be designed according to turn-based gameplay. Before participating in the match, gamers can choose different characters to join the fight with Kirito to make the match proceed more smoothly. Besides, the battle system was also renovated. For the player to have a better experience in the sequence of the games, the game also integrates the Virtual Keys for gamers to choose Skills, Combo, and reasonable movement before the opponent’s moves.
According to the publisher Bandai Namco announced, SAO Alicization Rising Steel not only adheres to the content of the original arc but is also exclusive in terms of content. This means the sequel to SAO Alicization will be integrated into the game. With this exclusive ownership, Bandai Namco gives players an extremely exciting feeling to experience a game completely according to the original of the series. Besides, the game also promises to bring players lively and dramatic battles right on their smartphones.

Also, familiar characters in the storyline in the Sword Art Online, Alfheim Online, and Gun Gale Online sections also appear as relayers for Kirito on the way to defeat the strongest enemy.
It can be said that the graphics in this game are not much different from the original anime. In general, the characters in the game are unchanged, the scenery in the game is preserved. Players only realize the change when considering the machine configuration when experiencing this game. However, the best quality of the game lies in the character’s movement and movement effects.
