Convention season started off strong with Anime North, and fans of the Sword Art Online can now look forward to possibly having their favourite series become a game for the Nintendo Switch.
Bandai Namco took to their official YouTube page earlier today and put up a new and mysterious teaser trailer for an unannounced project, titled #Projekt1514.
The sun was shining over Toronto this weekend as fans flocked to the Toronto Congress Centre and the International Plaza Hotel for Anime North, Canada’s biggest Anime convention. Con-goers experienced panels, art, vendors and activities that celebrated Japanese anime, manga, music, and games. One of everone’s favorite things to do at Anime North is cosplay. Participants create elaborate costumes from all aspects of the fandom. As always, we saw some incredible entries parading around the con. Check out some of these fantastic cosplayers in the gallery below!

Finally, Sword Art Online gets a Vita game… and you’re better off sticking to the anime.
