While Super Smash Bros. Ultimate held the lion's share of last week's Nintendo Direct at E3 2018, the confirmation that Bandai Namco's over-the-top 3v3 brawler Dragon Ball FighterZ is also Switch bound got fighting game fans more than a little excited.

The publisher has confirmed the port will arrive in Japan on 27th September, bringing with it some new additions for Switch owners. 'Extreme Type' is a new mode that will make inputting the combos for powerful moves far easier (which should make the game a lot more attractive to relative newcomers). The Japan version will also offer early access to Super Saiyan Blue Goku and Vegeta, as well as packing in a copy of Dragon Ball Z: Super Butouden (which hit the Super Famicom in 1993).

That September release date does cast some considerable doubt on DBF making the 'summer 2018' release date teased at E3, although we're hoping it does make its way to western Switches by the end of 2018.
