Today Bandai Namco Entertainment released a video showcasing the combat mechanics of the upcoming JRPG Sword Art Online Last Recollection.
The video promises battles that are "speedier and more exhilarating than ever before" with the ability to trigger sword skills by pressing a single button or selecting specific ones to execute depending on preference, with the ability to develop your own combos.
Perfect Counter lets you trigger a specific sword skill with perfect timing while an enemy is attacking, while Perfect Sidestep triggers when you dodge exactly when an attack is incoming, giving you the upper hand.
You can see these concepts in action below.
In case you missed the original announcement made back in November, the game is a retelling of the Sword Art Online Alicization: War of Underworld arc of the anime and is set in the Dark Territory of Underworld. It will also serve as a sequel to Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris.
