Yes, I am joking in the sub-heading. Mostly… Anyways, Bandai Namco has announced that Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet's first DLC, Ambush of the Imposters, will release in Japan on April 25th. It will cost 1,200 yen individually or 3,000 yen with the season pass. Bandai Namco has also released some info on it:

  • New story: The time is before the capture of the SBC Flugel—. Following rumors about enemy ArFA-sys units, the protagonist and its companions start investigating the rumors with the cooperation of Yamikaze, Dyne and Musketeer X… another story starts.

  • New playable characters: Dyne (voiced by Satoshi Tsuruoka), Yamikaze (voiced by Gou Shinomiya), and Musketeer X (voiced by Hibiku Yamamura)

  • New boss enemy: Elemental Wizard

  • New game mode Bullet Of Bullets: Offline-only. Fight against characters encountered at random. Win through the one-versus-one opening rounds three times, and aim for victory in the eight-person battle royale final round. Kirito, Asuna, and the others, as well as new characters Dyne, Yamikaze, and Musketeer X will appear as opponents.

SAO: Fatal Bullet

On April 25th, the game version update 1.2.0 will also release. It includes a 4v4 deathmatch online mode (that won't feature an enemy boss), a level cap raise to 175, a weapon rank raise to eight, and new weapons. It is unknown when the DLC will release in the US.
