Bandai Namco released a huge amount of screenshots to tease Sword Art Online fans for the upcoming JRPG/Shooter Fatal Bullet. The latest batch of screens shows off a few more aspects to the game's inner workings, including the "Kirito Mode" which lets players assume the role of the well-loved protagonist of the main series.
In the images below, we also see Death Gun in one of the game's tournaments, while also exploring the Remnant Wasteland with a customised hero. With familiar weaponry from the popular anime, the Fatal Bullet really looks like it's going to be the game that hardcore fans will love.
Bandai also released a little more info on the online aspect of the game:
