MMORPG-centric franchises Accel World and Sword Art Online (both created by Reki Kawahara) have been pitted against each other with the announcement of Accel World vs. Sword Art Online: Millennium Twilight, with the game likely to determine which series is “superior” – at least according to the more stuck-up fanatics.

The brief announcement video:

Little has been divulged as to how the game will function (other than the fact that it will be an action RPG), though it is assumed that the characters of each series will be at odds with one another – Accel World vs. Sword Art Online: Millennium Twilight will make its way to PS4 and Vita sometime in 2017.

    Oh wow, an entire game on this? What a terribly obvious way to milk the fans.

    Sega has some nice Accel World figures. You guys would need to import them, it's very popular in Japan.

    We know that Kirito wins in the end. Because of course he will.

    Here's the thing, I can't blame a series for that happening, because we want it to happen. The only people who don't want a happy ending are people too sad about their own lives to not want others to have a happy ending if they don't like them a bit, plain and simple. A tragic ending is not a better ending, it doesn't take any more skill to kill everyone and force drama than it takes to have everything flow together in happiness. But that said, people don't want happy endings dropped in their lap anymore.

    The only issue with a story is if we feel the heroes have an 'earned' happy ending. Quite frankly SAO's first portion did earn that for me well, and then after the fact, I absolutely love what they explored in the world on an intellectual level because it's working with real concepts. It wasn't the 'same' but I didn't want it to be the same.

    Is it perfect? Hell no, expecting perfection is the mark of stupidity or petulance. Was it well put-together? Yup. Are there holes? Some. Do they destroy the concept? Only if you let them. None were bad enough to kill the series.

    To this day I have no idea why people bitch about SAO, because the reasons I've heard are so shallow I can't believe so much hatred is in place. The only reason comes down to is because it's popular, and fans being morons is not the fault of the show. Blaming it for stupid fans just mirrors the stupidity at the people who blame the show for them.

    However, having Kirito win by Deus Ex Machina is goddamn bullshit. That's just outright poor writing and an attempt to wriggle out of 'getting written into the corner'.

    kirito cant be the father of kuroyukihime.
    i was think the same, and after the chapter versus and kuroyukis smile, but now.
    but with the existens of kuroyukihimes older sister, all my theories are melting away
    because his first daughter is the exact oppesit of kirito and asuna, so i dont think kuroyukihime can be the daugther of them both

    Reki Kawahara already denied Kuroyukihime being the daughter of Kirito and Asuna a long time ago. Time to let that rest from the mouth of the creator of both series himself.

    I'm more of the "Kirito involved in the development of the Burst Link" camp.

    I couldn't care less what fair-weather idiots think of these series, those models are phenomenal and I want to get my hands on them. That and those shaders, this is absolutely amazing, what I wouldn't give to find out the parameters for the shaders from these games that can so perfectly emulate the anime styles.

    Funny how the "online" aspect is completely absent, irony?

    The wondrous joy of VR: You don't have to look like your real-self. AW didn't enforce SAO's original forced-identity aspect from the death game arc.

    Oh come on, give it a rest already.
    Accel World - Good till the first half. Or more like good start, but bad everything else.
    SAO - Great concept, that slowly turns into mediocre romance/harem series - wasted potential (too much switching between various games, Aincrad was good, but then it looked like author decided to suddenly end it and switch to Alfheim, and so on)
    Mix the two things - receive simple milk machine

    I missed/ignored about a third of AW (most of the second half when the "plot" kicked in). I guessed what happened into those missed eps (6-8 in a row)from ending eps and what happened prior to my inattention. I went back on day and skimmed those missed eps. Pretty much exactly what I figured. All the eps were DBZ style filler BS. AW sucked even more than SAO. At least SAO had a setting I kinda liked and better cute characters.

    AW was a cluster of angst for the sake of angst. It was pure shonen in the worst way to me.

    let them fight:
    their destruction will bring great joy to us that would rather see them both get erased from existence.

    meanwhile, i got popcorn, front row seats, and a fucking gundam for further destruction once a winner has been determined.
