It looks like 2020’s Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris is Switch-bound if a recent retailer leak is anything to go by.
Australian Nintendo community Vooks has reported that EB Games Australia accidentally listed a switch version of Bandai Namco’s latest game based on the Sword Art Online anime. There’s no specific release date for the game — simply a “2022” window — but as other Sword Art Online games have made their way to Switch, we wouldn’t be surprised if this was on the cards too.
There’s nothing fancy about the accidental listing, otherwise! Just some placeholder box art and some pricing, and that’s it. Interestingly, Bandai Namco has just announced that the game will be receiving new DLC on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam in the future.
When the game first launched on PS4 in 2020, our friends over at Push Square were less than impressed with it, calling it a “technical mess“.
