Sword Art Online The Movie -Ordinal Scale- (劇場版 ソードアート・オンライン -オーディナル・スケール-, Gekijōban Sōdo Āto Onrain -Ōdinaru Sukēru-?) is a Sword Art Online movie that was released in about 1,000 theatres worldwide on February 18, 2017.[1] The movie is set after Mother's Rosario, but before the Alicization Arc and has an original story written by the author, Kawahara Reki.[2] The theme song of the movie is Catch the Moment, a new song by LiSA.[3]

The stage of the movie is an Augmented Reality Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (ARMMORPG) titled «Ordinal Scale» (OS) for an Augmented Reality device called the «Augma». A feature of Ordinal Scale is a «Ranking System», according to which, each player is assigned a rank, indicated by an ordinal number instead of a cardinal number. The game is set in the real world, and players can increase their rank by gathering items that appear in various places of the real world, or by defeating monsters. Higher-ranked players are granted overwhelming power and this is commonly a major factor in deciding the outcome of Player versus Player (PvP) battles.[4][5]

Prologue

In 2022, the world of virtual reality was upended by the arrival of a new invention from a genius programmer, Kayaba Akihiko. Called NerveGear, it was the first full-dive system and with it, came endless possibilities to VRMMORPGs. 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 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, by the time Kirito decides to join them. They’re about to find out that Ordinal Scale isn’t all fun and games…

    • The German licensor announced it for End of 2017/Early 2018, thus I assume the Aniplex version will take almost the same time.
    • I'm dreading the price from Aniplex. Hopefully, I will be able to see it while in in the Philippines in March. I just found out it will...
