This Week's Japanese Game Releases: Fatal Twelve, Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet Complete Edition for Switch, more

Fatal Twelve for PlayStation 4 and Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet Complete Edition for Switch are the highlights of this week’s Japanese game releases.

The PlayStation 4 version of Fatal Twelve is an enhanced port of the March 2018-released PC version. In addition to numerous additional event CG and scenario(s) written by the game’s original staff and some refined visuals, it also includes both English and Japanese text support. The story follows high schooler Shishimai Rinka, who ran a small cafe named Lion House in place of her grandmother. She lived a normal life, until she was one day caught up in an explosion while returning home on the train alongside her friend.

The Switch version of Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet Complete Edition contains the same content as the January-released PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions, which includes the base game plus all four post-release expansion packs. It is also the first time the GunGale Online-set Sword Art Online game will be available on Switch. The game originally launched on the aforementioned platforms in February 2018.
