Sword Art Online: Alicization Rising Steel has renamed itself to Sword Art Online: Unleash Blading. This rebrand is in part due to the game incorporating the “Moon Cradle” arc, which is a continuation of “Alicization”, an arc that has yet to be animated at this point of writing. Sword Art Online: Unleash Blading is also including updates from “Progressive”, namely, the Aria of a Starless Night movie.
Events are presently running to celebrate the release of the movie as well, including:
- 7 day log in bonus until 10 November 2021 14:59 UTC
- A selector ticket from a limited pool offered
- Custom Scout Tickets roulette from 2 November 2021 15:00 UTC to 24 November 2021 14:59 UTC
- Free gacha scouts until 19 November 2021 14:59 UTC

- “Aria of a Starless Night” Asuna and “Beta Tester” Kirito will be added as 4-star charaters
- Discount on movie release gacha
