Dragon Ball FighterZ is heading to Nintendo Switch


Saiyan battles are heading to Nintendo’s portable console system.

BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe have just announced that Dragon Ball FighterZ is heading to Nintendo Switch in 2018. It combines classic 2.5D fighting game dynamics with the Dragon Ball universe.

Dragon Ball is one of the most popular and iconic anime franchises and has been enjoyed by millions around the world since its debut in 1984. It’s one of the most merchandised anime based series ever, with a whole host of toys and other items being released.

The game was developed with Arc System Works, the legendary developer of classic Japanese 2D fighting titles like Guilty Gear and BlazBlue. They’ve taken the signature action-packed and explosive gameplay and combined it with the portability of Nintendo’s flagship device.

Dragon Ball FighterZ will feature easy-to-play JoyCon controls while also providing support for Nintendo Switch Pro Controller for serious and competitive play.

The game allows you to play as your favourite Dragon Ball character, no matter your skill level. 3v3 battle mechanics give you an epic, action-packed feel to the game while the combination of 2D visuals and advanced 3D character models will give you the visual thrill associated with the fast-paced series.

To get the best out of the game, players will need to train and master more than one fighter and style. Only then will you be able to take out the competition.

Dragon Ball FighterZ for Nintendo Switch will be playable at the BANDAI NAMCO E3 booth (1647) in the South Hall at the Los Angeles Convention Centre and also in the Nintendo Booth in the West Hall.
