Great news Nintendo fans, a new fighter joins Super Smash Bros Ultimate! It’s also the Nintendo’s conference in this E3 day. Joining Joker and Piranha Plant, we have the classic N64 video game character Banjo and Kazooie. These two dynamic duo made their debut in the Nintendo 64 and it was developed by the company Rare. It wasn’t until Microsoft bought Rare and took games IP like Banjo-Kazooie and Battletoads. Also coming to Smash Ultimate, we have another RPG character joining the fight. The Hero from the popular JRPG Dragon’s Quest joins Smash. In the trailer, you can play as either recent Hero from Dragon Quest XI or even play as his other versions from the past games.

It’s been announced that the game is not only coming for PS4 and PC, but a Switch version is expected for this game as well. It’s unknown however if it will be released the same day, but this is good news for Switch fans. Also confirmed, two new characters join the roster. We have the anime’s main antagonist Ragyō Kiryūin and her servant Nui Harime.
With these two characters included, here is the following roster:
- Ryuko Matoi
- Satsuki Kiryūin
- Ira Gamagoori
- Uzu Sanageyama

It’s been mentioned that the game will have an original story and the protagonist will focus only on Satsuki. I will try to keep everyone posted on more news on this game. As a quick recap, this game will be released sometime in 2019. The game will be on PS4, PC and Nintendo Switch.

Good news for SAO fans! If you like Sword Art Online video games, Bandai Namco has some fun news for you gamers! Announced at the Tokyo Game Show, video game company Bandai Namco of Entertainment released a video about five years of Sword of Art Online video games. From Hollow Fragment to Fatal Bullet, Bandai Namco wanted fans to see the amazing achievements of the past five years. However, that’s not the news I want to talk about. In the later half of the video, Bandai Namco revealed that the following games Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet and Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization will be ported to the Nintendo Switch. To make things more exciting, the Switch versions of these two games will have all the DLCs in it. The Switch titles will be called Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization – Deluxe Edition and Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet – Complete Edition.
It won’t be on Switch, but coming to Steam is the video game Sword Art Online: Lost Song. Sword Art Online: Lost Song takes place after the first SAO game, Hollow Re:Fragment but the focus is on ALfeim Online, the world of the fairys.
