Sword Art Online II: Gun Gale Online
Sword Art Online was such a big hit, but not satisfying enough. Now the next installment of the light novel series is considered for adaption. With it already being confirmed, most people may want to know what is in store. One can only assume the story will follow the light novel of the GGO arc. Most people will argue this as the third season, but in reality it is the third arc.
Gun Gale Online Light Novel Plot
The light novel of Sword Art Online: GGO arc follows Kirito into a new VRMMORPG. Within this game guns are the primary weapons while lightsabers and knifes are subsidiary weapons. People have recently died from the game when their avatars are killed. Sinon, a new character, has asked Kirito for help in solving the case. He leaps into the game in search for the murderers. Come to find out, three people have created an avatar called Death Gun. He carries a special weapon that kills both user and avatar at the same time. Two of those three people happen to have been part of the Laughing Coffin game from Sword Art Online. The adventure of Kirito continues again in Gun Gale Online.
Gun Gale Online New Character
Sinon is the new female character for this arc. Her real name is Shino Asada. She is a female sniper in GGO, who started the game to get over a childhood trauma that happened with guns. She owns a rare gun called the PGM Ultima Ratio Hecate II. At first Kirito is considered to be an opponent due to the games large competitiveness of the game. She also develops feelings for him like his other female game partners. She also joins ALfheim Online as a Cait Sith archer. Asuna gives her the nickname Sinonon.
Gun Gale Online New Feature
There is a new feature involved with Gun Gale Online, you can make real money. Within the game a player is competing against others and can earn money and use it in the real world. This gives a lot of people reason to play this game. Many people even use it as their profession and earn a lot of cash.
I am excited to see this new arc come out. I have heard rumors that it will be airing around the same time that the newest game, Hollow Fragments, is released in April of 2014. Hopefully it will follow closely to the light novels much like the first two arcs. I also would like it if the new arc covered the whole season, there are a lot of nice twists in the light as well that may take place.
