This year, we’ll be getting a new SAO spin-off anime with Sword Art Online: Alternative Gun Gale Online. Now, the anime’s official twitter page has revealed when exactly we can expect this new anime to premiere. And according to their tweet, it will be for April 2018.

Written by Kino’s Journey light novel author Keiichi Sigsawa, this SAO spin-off focuses on the GGO game. It follows Karen Kohiruimaki, a tall college student with a complex about her height. But when she starts playing GGO, she suddenly becomes a skilled player named LLENN. And as the Squad Jam team tournament approaches, she teams up with the beautiful player, Pitohui. Together, their team must outlast all other teams in a gunfight Battle Royale.

Tomori Kusunoki will play LLENN, while Youko Hikasa will voice Pitohui. Other cast members also include Kazuyuki Okitsu, who will play M, and Chinatsu Akasaki, who will play Fukaziroh. The staff will announce further details in the days to come.
