The Accel World
franchise is expanding with yet another project: an Accel World OVA
- a proper one, not to be confused with the Actual World
shorts that will be bundled
on each Blu-ray and DVD volume from the ongoing TV anime's home video release. This newly announced
OVA will be bundled with the limited edition of the Accel World Stage:01
game, whose release date has also been revealed this week as being set for September 13.
Publisher Namco Bandai is also mirroring these announcements on the game's official website
, and in its updated trailer
which they re-released today. Accel World Stage:01 Ginyoku no Kakusei is just the first of two "accelerated world simulation" games based on Reki Kawahara's light novel series, revealed
earlier this year for the PlayStation 3 and PSP, as strategy titles in which your Duel Avatars face-off in one-on-one battles.
The first game's limited edition PS3 version will bundle the Accel World OVA on Blu-ray, while the PSP version's limited edition will have it on DVD only.
