UK Anime distributors have clearly been on a roll as of late when it comes to theatrical releases. We have a new release each month up until August/September of this year! That in itself would have been unbelievable just one year ago. With A Silent Voice enjoying a very warm reception just last week, screenings still available, we now turn our attention towards the next release to grace the big screen – Sword Art Online The Movie: Ordinal Scale.
Sword Art Online The Movie: Ordinal Scale will be available in cinemas in UK & Ireland on 19th April with further select screening from 21st April. The official movie website is now open for you to find your nearest screening and book tickets at http://saothemovie.co.uk/
ABOUT SWORD ART ONLINE THE MOVIE ““Ordinal Scale,” an ARMMO-RPG that was designed exclusively for “Augma.”
Following its release, it has become the most discussed game due to its advanced technology. In this game, players can raise their rank by collecting items that appear in various places in the real world and by defeating monsters. This “Ranking System” is the main feature of the game, and in this system, each player’s status is determined by their rank which is indicated by an ordinal number instead of a cardinal number.
As the result, high ranking players are given overwhelming power and often rank has become a major factor in deciding the outcome of a PvP battle.”
