Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris - Blooming of Matricaria DLC now available on Nintendo Switch

Bandai Namco has released Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris DLC #2 Blooming of Matricaria on Nintendo Switch, alongside update version 3.0.1 which adds the free 'Ancient Apostles' storylines 5 through 8.

As a reminder, 'Ancient Apostles' is the name of the series of free storyline updates for Alicization Lycoris, with each centered on a different character. The second set includes:

  • Asuna - The Bound Angel
  • Ronye - The Dark Piscine
  • Leafa - The Corpse of Demise
  • Lisbeth - The Clown of Confusion

As far as paid DLC goes, Blooming of Matricaria is the 2nd and final offering, following Blooming of Forget-me-not which launched in January 2023 for Switch. The DLC packs are priced at $24.99 each, or can be purchased as a bundle for $44.99. With the addition of the new update and DLC, the Switch version of Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris is now caught up to previous releases and is content-complete.

A trailer for Blooming of Matricaria can be found below. Full patch notes for the 3.0.1 version update can be found here.

With the first DLC Blooming of Forget-me-not released earlier this year and Blooming of Matricaria released today, the Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris story is now complete on Nintendo Switch.

Kirito and friends will have to take a stand once again against evil in the form of the Four Lords attacking Central Cathedral, spreading chaos on the Underworld.

This DLC brings a new storyline taking the player through new maps, dungeons and divine beasts to challenge, with new weapons to assist their adventure.
