Sword Art Online

Bandai Namco is considering Sword Art Online games for Switch, Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet producer Keishi Minami said during a Q&A corner during the Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet “Strongest Squad Finals” live stream.

“Since I’m a gamer at heart like everyone else, I’m also hoping that we will release on Nintendo Switch…” Minami said in response to a question asking if the Sword Art Online series will come to Switch. “Right now as far as planning goes, we are discussing it with the higher ups. It might take a bit of time, but it’s being considered with a positive outlook.”

A Bandai Namco higher-up added, “We are looking at it positively from all angles. After all, there are a lot of people playing on the Switch and Sword Art Online has a lot of young fans. So even though it’s still a work in progress, I hope you’ll look forward to when we are able to make a formal announcement.”

The latest entry in the Sword Art Online game series, Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet, is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
