Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale Film Briefly Listed on February 18 by Theater
The advance ticket page for the Aeon Cinema Dainichi theater in Osaka briefly listed the Sword Art Online the Movie: Ordinal Scale anime with an opening date of February 18, 2017. As of Sunday, the page no longer lists the film.
A trailer for the film debuted at Anime Expo earlier this month, and it listed a Spring 2017 release. Some anime — notably the Precure franchise — have listed February launch dates as "Spring." The film will play in about 150 theaters in Japan, and Aniplex of America confirmed its release overseas.
