Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization Is Coming to Switch
Bandai Namco just released a new trailer for the Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization Switch port. The game was originally released on the PlayStation 4 in 2016 and on Steam in 2017. It recreates the world of Aincrad—the world from the first season of the manga and anime of the same name—although it renames it Aingroud. Compared to Fatal Bullet, the setting is more traditional and the gameplay elements are much more varied.
The Switch port, titled Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization Deluxe Edition, contains all of the original game’s season pass content in addition to local wireless four-player multiplayer. It also features the ability to control some sword abilities using the Joy-Con gyro sensors.
Here’s an excerpt from our review of the original game:
“Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization will not be in the running for any “Game of the Year” nominations and that is perfectly okay. Hollow Realization does a splendid job in providing solid gameplay and producing an original story. As a player who does not like replaying the same story told in other mediums, Hollow Realization was a breath of fresh air in an otherwise repetitive series. The amount of character customization, party options, and side quests will be sure to keep players satisfied.”
