Bandai Namco has been releasing a steady stream of anime-licensed games on the Nintendo Switch ever since the launch window, and now one of the biggest franchises has been given a release date for North America and Europe – Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization Deluxe Edition. The game is slated for May 24th, almost a full month after its Japanese launch.

Hollow Realization originally launched in October 2016 for the PlayStation 4 and Vita, with a story that takes place three years after the original Sword Art Online story arc. Popular characters from the anime and original light novel make appearances throughout.
