VIZ Media Will Release Accel World: Infinite Burst This Fall
VIZ Media has announced they have acquired the home media rights for the Accel World: Infinite Burst movie during its official panel event held this past weekend at Anime Central 2018. The film is a sequel to the 2012 Accel World animated series, which are based on the light novels of the same title written by Reki Kawahara. Accel World: Infinite Burst will be released this Fall on Blu-ray and DVD, with special extras including the two OVAs “Reverberation” and “Vacation.”
In Accel World: Infinite Burst, Haruyuki and his friends are playing the online fighting game Brain Burst, locked in a territory battle with a rival group as usual. But things take an unexpected turn when a mysterious black cloud kicks them out of the game and prevents them from reentering. The seemingly impossible phenomenon isn’t just an isolated incident—it’s 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”!
