We’ve learned (via NeoGAF) that the recently confirmed Sword Art Online Re: Hollow Fragment on Playstation 4 is coming with an entirely new English translation.
Bandai Namco confirmed the news in a Facebook post:
“We’ve heard your feedback! Sword Art Online: Lost Song will come out physically with Japanese voices and English, German, Italian, Spanish & French subtitles! And the digital version of Re: Hollow Fragment on PS4 will have its English translation redone!”
Fans expressed their dissatisfaction with the game’s original English translation, and they made sure to let Bandai Namco know. It’s worth mentioning that the western release for Hollow Fragment used the Asian version’s English translation, an example of which you can view above.
In case you missed it, we reviewed Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment on Playstation Vita, and while the translation was an issue, the game overall is at least worth checking out.
Sword Art Online Re: Hollow Fragment is coming to PlayStation 4 exclusively on the PlayStation Network some time this summer.
