In ACCEL WORLD: INFINITE BURST, a mysterious black cloud kicks Haruyuki and his friends out of the online fighting game Brain Burst. Unable to reenter, they discover that this isn’t just an isolated incident— the cloud is spreading and preventing all Burst Linkers from accelerating. Haruyuki and the others soon learn that, to protect the bond that connects them, they must confront a powerful ancient being that has been sealed away since the dawn of the Accelerated World!
“Building on the original anime series, ACCEL WORLD: INFINITE BURST further explores the surreal and dangerous virtual world of the Brain Burst game that Haruyuki and his friends must navigate and overcome,” says Candice Uyloan, VIZ Media’s Senior Director of Marketing. “We invite fans to catch this exciting fall release and to add this latest adventure to their personal home media collections.”
ACCEL WORLD is based on a series of popular light novels written by Reki Kawahara (Sword Art Online) and was produced by the famed anime studio Sunrise (TIGER & BUNNY, Mobile Suit Gundam, Code Geass, Cowboy Bebop, KEKKAISHI). Kawahara entered the first novel in the series into ASCII Media Works’ 15th Dengeki Novel Prize in 2008 and won the Grand Prize. ACCEL WORLD has also inspired a popular manga series and several video games.
