With Sword Art Online’s TV anime series taking a break for a while following the massive Alicization saga seen in the third season, the franchise has branched out with a new feature film series taking on Reki Kawahara’s official spin-off series that goes back to the Aincrad arc to flesh out Kirito and Asuna’s earliest stories in the series overall.

Sword Art Online -Progressive- Scherzo of Deep Night is now making its way through theaters in Japan as of last month, and it has been taking over the international box office quite a bit. While there is no international release date set for the newest movie just yet, fans can get a look at just how much actually goes down in the new arc with the newest trailer highlighting some of its biggest fights seen in the movie.

Scherzo of Deep Night is actually from the fourth volume of Reki Kawahara’s spin-off series that skips over an arc following the end of the first film. It’s a bit of an adjustment, but as for what to expect, Yen Press describes the light novel’s version of the arc as such, “It’s been just two months since they were trapped in the game of death that is Sword Art Online, and Kirito and Asuna continue their struggle at the vanguard of progress through the game. The fifth floor of Aincrad is a mazelike ruin, and the two dare to take pleasure in raiding it for the treasure it contains. Upon returning to the fourth floor, it’s time to do some questing on behalf of the Elf Lord Yofilis–but here begins Asuna’s discontent, for in doing so they will have to face her least favorite monster ever…”
