In 2026, a new machine called the Augma is developed to compete against the NerveGear and its successor, the Amusphere. A next-gen wearable device, the Augma doesn't have a full-dive function like its predecessors. Instead, it uses Augmented Reality (AR) to get players into the game. It is safe, user-friendly and lets users play while they are conscious, making it an instant hit on the market. The most popular game on the system is "Ordinal Scale" (aka: OS), an ARMMORPG developed exclusively for the Augma. Asuna and the gang have already been playing OS for a while, and soon Kirito decides to join them. However, they're about to find out that Ordinal Scale isn't all fun and games.

User Reviews

I loved it.
9 April 2017 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I loved it. It was not as good as some of Sword Art Online's other story arcs but definitely worth seeing.

The following comments are to put into context some of the comments by reviewers who missed the earlier story arcs.

We see a more mature, career oriented Kirito in Ordinal Scale. It is a consistent progression of the character development in earlier story arcs.

It may not be the last Sword Art Online story arc as there were teasers that left it open for more to come.
