''Sword Art Online'' franchise is a very successful when it comes to marketing their brand name. Their anime series was very popular and the fans are waiting for the release of season 3. The movie ''Sword Art Online'' is in the making and the fans have been waiting for that too.

The manga series are very popular in Japan and the readers worldwide have read the English translations too. In Mar. 2016 gematsu came up with the news which the lovers of ''Sword Art Online'' franchise will be delighted to hear. ''Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization will launch for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in Japan this fall, Bandai Namco announced at the Dengeki Game Festival today.''

The video gamers of North America and Europe need not feel bad as the game will be launched in those continents too in 2016. Forbes too reported in Feb. 2016 that this game is in the making and ''IBM Japan is currently leading this project, with assistance from Bandai Namco, Aniplex and Kadokawa.''

''Sword Art Online started out as a series of Japanese light novels in 2009 that later got a manga as well as an anime. The narrative premise was that in the near future, a massively multiplayer online virtual reality game is hacked so its denizens are trapped within it. Unable to leave they have to battle their way to freedom'' the article further talked about the entire franchise.

This game seems to be an advanced version. ''Not only is IBM apparently using their SoftLayer cloud computing setup but they are also planning to experiment with cognitive computing as well'' clarified Forbes. The forums talked about their expectations from the game and it should be better than ''Sword Art Online-Hollow Fragment.''

Talking further about this ambitious project, ''In the meantime, the project will be recruiting 208 alpha testers in the Tokyo area for test from March 18th to 20th. Getting the online right for a game of this scope will be very difficult, so this initial testing is definitely a good idea'' was the verdict of Forbes.

So what can the video game players expect from this game? ''As the world and game of Sword Art Online is not something that can be easily recreated with modern technology, so IBM Japan has definitely set itself a hugely ambitious target'' is what Forbes declared about this upcoming game.

So now the gaming world will have to wait for a little longer to experience this game. ''Not only is IBM apparently using their SoftLayer cloud computing setup but they are also planning to experiment with cognitive computing as well'' going by the development stage, one can safely assume that ''Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization'' will be a world-class game.
