The Christmas season is in full swing but that doesn’t mean we’re taking whole festive period off as today we’re delighted to bring you a full preview of what to expect with our Sword Art Online II: Part 2 release when it arrives on 28th December.
Before we go on, a quick reminder that Sword Art Online II: Part 1 is available now. You can get the full details on that release HERE.
You can order your copy of Sword Art Online II: Part 2 from the likes of Amazon UK, Zavvi, Base.com and even our own web shop now. We can confirm that HMV stores around the UK will be stocking this on day of release.
Synopsis: Kirito is now certain that Death Gun is also a survivor of SAO. And to make things worse, he is most likely an ex-member of the murder guild, Laughing Coffin. As the final tournament of Bullet of Bullets begins, Kirito and Sinon agree to join forces until they identify which player is Death Gun.
Through the battles, Sinon learns that Kirito also suffers from traumatic memories from the past. But as Sinon sees Kirito trying to overcome them, she too tries to be strong. As BoB reaches its last stage, Kirito suspects that Death Gun may have one or more accomplices in the real world, and they may be targeting Shino Asada as their next target!

WHAT DOES THE FINISHED PRODUCT LOOK LIKE?
And now to the actual product itself. You can click on the images below to enlarge them. We will note that as the rigid case is using a mirror-like material, it is difficult to capture how great this looks in photos consistently. We’ve done our best to capture this as best as we can though.
We know a lot of you will be wondering how the Limited Collector’s Edition set of Part 2 will look next to Part 1, and more specifically how it looks inside the Limited Edition Box that comes with Part 1. Well, here’s look for you.
NOTE: Sword Art Online Part 1 Limited Collector’s Edition Blu-ray/DVD that comes with the Collector’s box is sold separately. NOT included with Part 2.
We also want to take a moment to focus on the Standard DVD edition of Sword Art Online II: Part 2. Here’s a glimpse of that version for you.
And that concludes the unboxing of our Sword Art Online II: Part 2 Limited Collector’s Edition Blu-ray/DVD and Standard DVD releases available from 28th December. We hope you’re looking forward to this release.
