Kadokawa Corporation trademarked Sword Art Online: Variant Showdown in Japan as of today! This could be a new title for a game as trademarks like these are held by Kadokawa while Bandai Namco develops/publishes the games. Many of the products and services labeled with the trademark fall under “downloadable games”, “home consoles” and more labels to suggest this could be a new game.
In the meantime, Sword Art Online fans should wait for an official announcement. Stay tuned at Final Weapon for the latest Japanese gaming news and feel free to support us on Patreon!
