A lot of info is still not revealed at the moment but the official website has put a storyline on board. Fortunately, Kirito is not completely unfamiliar with the title. It is not surprising that the game has a lot of attention since it was allegedly created by a middle schooler.

Kirito hears rumors about Cross Edge one day at the Dicey Café. In the first scenario, there is a mysterious player who suddenly attacks. If you are defeated by them, a portion of your memory is lost. In the second scenario, the player wears a hood pulled low over their eyes.

As Kirito remembers Laughing Coffin, the player-killer clan he faced in SAO, he feels a pang of nostalgia. Kirito and his friends play Cross Edge as a way of researching these rumors and soon discover that they are the targets of a surprise attack.
