News: Update on SAO's Incoming Large Patch

Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment is set to receive a large update in Japan for the PSVita.
The update looks to add roughly 30 hours of extra content with quests, monsters, events etc being added. You'll also now be able to 'date' Sachi - "Originally, Sachi wasn’t available to date. After the update, you will be able to hold her hand and carry her." Futami also mentioned that Sachi will have new event scenes, whether any of those will contain bubblebath is not yet known. Those expecting the patch to be included with the western release of the game, due within the next few months, will be surprised to learn that it its not to be:

"The update won’t be built into the Western release of Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment," producer Yosuke Futami said in an interview with Siliconera. "We’re currently considering to bring the large scale update from Japan over."

  1. So basically we get the update as long as everyone buys the game. So buy it dammit!

  2. That's lame they won't patch it unless enough people buy the game, how about instead not selling incomplete games? Oh wait that's every dev in the current industry.

  3. It absaloutly baffles me that its not included with the release in the west, especially with the patch coming over a month before the game launches here. The fact they are only 'considering' bringing the patch is a little worrying to say the least

  4. Agreed it upsets and frustrates me that developer arent supporting games before/after release.
