Bandai Namco is planning the Dragon Ball Game Summer Festival 2018 for July 29. During the live stream, news about Dragon Ball FighterZ and Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 will be shared.

Live stream links are not yet live. However, the event will be shown on Twitch, Niconico, and OpenRec. Details will be shared later.

The new Switch version of Dragon Ball FighterZ was given a September 27 release date in Japan earlier this week. In the west, Bandai Namco just confirmed that the game is launching on September 28. That date has been confirmed for both North America and Europe.

Those who pick up Dragon Ball FighterZ on Switch will be able to purchase all the extra characters already released on other platforms from day one. By pre-ordering the game, you’ll be given two gifts:

Nintendo World Report has put together a video comparing Dragon Ball FighterZ on Switch and the PlayStation 4. View it below.

Dragon Ball FighterZ

Dragon Ball FighterZ was officially confirmed for Nintendo Switch at E3 with a release date of “2018”. Today, a concrete release date has been announced for Japan – September 27. 

The Switch version will come with a couple of new features. Among those is the simplified “Exteme Type” control type, which makes it easier to pull off certain moves by using the L + R buttons. For example, using L + R + the heavy attack button will unleash a meteor attack. The game also supports playing with one Joy-Con, so you can easily play multiplayer matches on one Switch. Also, SSGSS Son-Goku and Vegeta will be unlockable earlier.

In Japan, the game will also come with a download code for the SNES game Dragon Ball Z: Super Butouden as well as a Super Rare card for the Dragon Ball Heroes arcade game. 

This bonus stuff likely won’t be part of the Western release, but the release date of September 27 seems possible for outside Japan as well. We will keep you updated.

Dragon Ball FighterZ

Switch is getting its first Dragon Ball game soon, though not the newest one. Bandai Namco is bringing Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 in September.

Bandai Namco and Arc System Works unveiled the brand new Dragon Ball FighterZ at E3 last month. Switch was not included as one of the confirmed platforms. However, in one interview, Dragon Ball FighterZ producer Tomoko Hiroki indicated that a Switch release might be possible if fans showed interest.

Bandai Namco is bringing Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 to Switch a few months from now. But at E3, the company announced the 2D fighter Dragon Ball FighterZ which is currently not planned for the system. Depending on fan interest, that could change.

French site Game Blog spoke with Dragon Ball FighterZ producer Tomoko Hiroki. Despite what some may say, the game not being on Switch isn’t a matter of the system’s technical specs or lack of power. Hiroki added that there hasn’t been any trouble porting over Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2.

It isn’t clear why Bandai Namco and developer Arc System Works skipped on Switch for Dragon Ball FighterZ. However, Hiroki did say that if fans show their interest, they could bring it over. Hiroki did caution that Dragon Ball FighterZ may not come to Switch the same time as other versions, but they’re open to considering it.
