Bandai Namco uploaded a second Japanese commercial for Dragon Ball FighterZ on Switch. Get a look at the advert below.

Bandai Namco released a video for Dragon Ball FighterZ containing a message from producer Tomoko Hiroki. In it, Hiroki mentions that the voices from fans helped make the game possible on Switch. Watch the full message below.

Dragon Ball FighterZ was originally announced at last year’s E3. Almost immediately, fans started to ask why there wasn’t a Switch version, and began requesting a port. Those requests will finally be fulfilled when Dragon Ball FighterZ arrives on Switch later this month.

Ahead of the release, Switch Player caught up with the developers to chat about the game. The interview started out with the team being asked about why the Switch edition didn’t appear at the same time as the PS4 and Xbox One versions:

Bandai Namco has set a release date for Kamen Rider Climax Scramble Zio. The game will release on November 29, with pre-orders opening September 13. Pricing is set at 6,800 yen.

Consumers will be able to purchase the Kamen Rider Climax Scramble Zio Premium Edition, featuring the game, DX Zi-O Ridewatch, Zi-O & Gates big rubber strap, and a set of four bath sheets, all packaged in an exclusive box. This will cost 9,800 yen.

During the week of August 20, My Hero: One’s Justice was the best-selling title of the week in Japan. According to Media Create data, between the Switch and PlayStation 4 versions, it sold roughly 40,000 copies.

Switch is actually where a majority of sales came from. Media Create has the Switch version at 24,626 copies sold while it moved 16,026 units on PlayStation 4.

Dengeki chimes in with some extra information as well. My Hero: One’s Justice managed to sell through 75% of its initial shipment. It also did better than the 3DS title My Hero Academia: Battle for All, which sold just over 5,000 copies in its first week and a bit of 30,000 copies in total.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 has seen a surprisingly long life in terms of continued DLC. Just a few days ago, Bandai Namco sent out Extra Pack 3. There was a bunch of stuff here, highlighted by the additions of Kefla and Super Baby Vegeta as new DLC.

Bandai Namco may have plans for even more DLC in the future. After datamining Extra Pack 3, a couple of additional characters may have been unearthed. We have the information below, though be warned of possible spoilers connecting to the Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie.

Bandai Namco has started to show a bit more support for Switch as of late, but One Piece: World Seeker is one title that won’t be appearing on the platform – at least not yet.

Producer Rei Hirata was recently asked about the game’s absence on Switch. In response, Hirata explained that development began before Switch released, though the team will listen to what the fans have to say when it comes to a potential port.
