Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization and Fatal Bullet Switch Releases Confirmed for the West

Sword Art Online -Hollow Realization- Deluxe Edition and Fatal Bullet: Complete Edition for Switch confirmed in the west.

September 24, 2018

Popular anime franchise Sword Art Online was featured at Tokyo Game Show 2018 last weekend, with an announcement that two previously released games, Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization and Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet, would be ported to Switch in Japan.

Today, Bandai Namco Entertainment America confirmed the Switch ports will be available in the west as well. The western Switch versions of the games are titled Sword Art Online –Hollow Realization- Deluxe Edition and Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet Complete Edition, implying each will have all additional DLCs.

A new DLC for Fatal Bullet and a PC port of Sword Art Online: Lost Song are coming as well. Besides Switch, Fatal Bullet Complete Edition will also release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

If you’re having a hard time differentiating the games, Hollow Realization and Lost Song are pseudo MMORPGs. The main difference between the two is the later taking place in a game where flight is possible. Meanwhile, Fatal Bullet is more like a third-person shooter -RPG hybrid similar to PS Vita’s Freedom Wars.

All three ports have no precise release date yet.
