Yesterday, Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization launched on Switch in the west. Check out nearly an hour of footage from the game below.

Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization Deluxe Edition is out now on Switch, and Bandai Namco has prepared a trailer to celebrate. We have it below.

Original: Bandai Namco has confirmed that Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization Deluxe Edition will be available on May 24 in Europe. Previously, we had only received the news about it launching this spring. North America is still without a final date at this time.

Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization Deluxe Edition will include all DLC previously released on other platforms when it launches on Switch. We have some English screenshots from the game below.

Bandai Namco just published a new Switch trailer for Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization Deluxe Edition. Get a look at the video below.

Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization Deluxe Edition launches on Switch this spring. Bandai Namco hasn’t said too much about it yet, but we do have some news regarding what looks to be a physical release.

Amazon Germany has a listing up for Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization Deluxe Edition, complete with the game’s boxart. That would indicate that retailers will be selling a physical version in Europe. Things are less certain in North America, but we did check Bandai Namco’s press site which has the same boxart (pictured above) with an ESRB logo.

Amazon Germany lists a tentative June 30 release date for Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization Deluxe Edition, so there’s still no word on when it will be out in the west. The Japanese launch is set for April 25.

Following up on today’s Japanese release date for Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization on Switch, we have an update for fans in the west. Bandai Namco has confirmed that it’ll be ready sometime this spring in North America and Europe, though a specific date hasn’t been shared just yet.
