During Tokyo Game Show 2018, Bandai Namco had a slew of announcements regarding one of their biggest game series, Sword Art Online. The announcements are all due in part to the 5th anniversary of the Sword Art Online video game series, so without further ado, let's see what's in store!

First up, we have a new expansion coming for the most recent entry in the series, Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet. This new expansion, titled Dissonance of Nexus, introduces a new character named Sachi to the team. Sachi has been a long time winner in fan-polls, so long time Sword Art fans should be excited for this new playable character! Along with the expansion announcement, Bandai Namco also announced Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet Complete Edition for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. This version includes the base game and all DLC released for Fatal Bullet, so if you've been waiting to try out the game, now's a good time to jump in!

Next up, Sword Art Online: Lost Song, the third game in the series, will soon be coming to PC via Steam. Released in 2015 for the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3, many fans of the Sword Art games consider this one of the best entries in the series, so it's nice to see a brand new demographic of fans get a chance to experience it!

And finally, Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization Deluxe Edition and Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet Complete Edition will both be making their way over to the Nintendo Switch in the near future!

If you're new to the Sword Art Online series, and would like to know what we here at RPGFan think of the games, then check out our reviews of Hollow Realization, and Fatal Bullet!
