It was rumoured earlier this year, but today's E3 2018 Nintendo Direct confirmed what we all wanted to hear - Dragon Ball FighterZ is coming to Switch.
The critically-acclaimed brawler made quite an impression on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, and now it's the turn of Nintendo fans to see what the fuss is all about. Amazingly, Nintendo didn't give the game much screen time and crammed the announcement in amongst a load of other titles.
Here's some PR:
DRAGON BALL FighterZ for the Nintendo Switch is in development at Arc System Works, a renowned Japanese video game developer of classic 2D fighting titles. With DRAGON BALL FighterZ for the Nintendo Switch, the development team is now taking the signature action-packed explosive gameplay of DRAGON BALL FighterZ and combining it with the portability of the Nintendo Switch. DRAGON BALL FighterZ for the Nintendo Switch will also feature easy-to-pick-up-and-play controls in support of single Joy-Con play, along with support for Nintendo Switch Pro Controller for serious competitive play. All the classic 2D fighting visuals and advanced 3D character models that look and feel as if they are ripped straight out of the DRAGON BALL anime series can now be enjoyed anytime, anywhere.
DRAGON BALL FighterZ for the Nintendo Switch will enable fans of all skill levels to truly feel like their favourite DRAGON BALL character. Featuring 3 vs. 3 battle mechanics, both new and seasoned players alike are sure to experience the epic scope of DRAGON BALL as they build their team and take them into battle. In order to build the strongest team possible, players will need to train and master more than one fighter and style. Only then will their skills be strong enough to take down the competition.
Bandai Namco hasn't given a solid release date as yet, but we can expect the game "this summer".
