Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris

Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris isn’t on Switch at the moment, but that could be changing in the future.

EB Games Australia issued a marketing email to consumers earlier today regarding news shared from this week’s Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase. However, Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris was included despite not being announced for the platform.

EB Games Australia also has a listing up for a Switch version on its website. Vooks points out that the tentative boxart has Bandai Namco’s new logo rather than the one that was in use when the game initially launched. Other than that, the listing has a general 2022 release window.

We also have the following trailer:

Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris originally released in July 2020. If we do end up seeing it on Switch, this wouldn’t be the first time that Bandai Namco brought a game from the series to Nintendo’s console after the initial launch. Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization and Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet appeared on Switch later on.

If the game does end up being announced for Switch, we’ll be sure to let you know.
