During Gamescom 2019, the latest in the Sword Art Online franchise was announced for PS4, Xbox One and PC: Sword Art Online Alicization Lyricoris! A beautiful, expansive virtual world is on the way. This new Sword Art Online title will feature a new heroine, Medina Orthinanos, where she teams up with Kirito, Alice, and the rest of the gang.
To celebrate the game’s upcoming release and to invite fans into the virtual world of Sword Art Online, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. is holding an Original Costume Design Contest, during which fans can submit costume designs that may potentially be featured in the game. Kirito or Alice could be seen donning fan-submitted designs when SWORD ART ONLINE Alicization Lycoris launches in the Americas! From August 18, 2019, until September 6, 2019, fans can submit costume designs at the official SWORD ART ONLINE Alicization Lycoris Original Costume Design Contest website.
Submissions from four different territories, including North America, will be judged together by the Sword Art Online video game development team. The top three designs in each territory will be announced during the Tokyo Game Show 2019; shortly thereafter, the official webpage will open up for fan votes on September 13, 2019. The voting period will run until September 27, 2019, and fans can vote for one design in their respective territory. On Sunday, October 6, 2019, one winner will be announced for each territory, totaling four winners overall!
