Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris is an action RPG from Aquaria Co, and Bandai Namco Entertainment. The title is available on PC via Steam like many other Bandai Namco titles. The game is suffering from some technical problems in the PC version of the game, as it just came out. If you are running into SWORD ART ONLINE Alicization Lycoris loading problems, here’s how you can fix it.
We hope that more Japanese titles based on anime make their way to PC as well. Publishes like SEGA, ATLUS, Square Enix, and CAPCOM have taken interest in the platform and are bringing more titles to PC.

Hit Ok, and you’re done
That’s all you need to do to fix the load times in-game We hope that an official patch comes out that addresses this issue. Steam Overaly is a very helpful feature as it lets you take screenshots, and use the web browser.
