This isn't your stadard patch update, which is pretty reassuring for players outside of Japan who will be getting the game on the same day the update hits. The update includes the addition of two new characters from the Sword Art Online series, as well as a ton of new costumes, and adjustments made based on feedback from Japanese players who already have the game.
