▍Sword Art Online Variant Showdown Gameplay
The game is a twin-stick real-time action game where players control one of three characters at a time, being able to switch between party members on the fly.
Characters have a basic attack and two special skills, unleashing combos on the fly and building up a combo meter. The longer your combo, the more damage you can deal, especially since you can wrack up a higher combo count by switching characters to continue the mayhem
