It’s finally happening – Bandai Namco has announced a collaboration for easily the two biggest virtual MMORPG properties known: Sword Art Online and .Hack.
The collaboration will happen on two fronts: on Bandai Namco and .Hack developer CyberConnect2’s spiritual successor to the series, New World, and in Bandai Namco’s smartphone game, Sword Art Online: Code Register.
In Code Register, you get Haseo, Black Rose, and Tri-Edge costumes for various Sword Art Online characters. In New World, you’ll get Kirito and Asuna costumes, as well as a Fairy Yui bonus, when you log in.
Here are some screenshots of the various costumes:
