How Dragon Ball FighterZ Could Come to the Nintendo Switch

During an interview at EVO, Tomoko Hiroki, producer of Dragon Ball FighterZ, mentioned something rather interesting through a translator.

In addition to the reveal trailer of Trunks, it was also announced that there will be a Dragon Ball FighterZ beta for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and registration to participate will start on July 26.

"In terms of the Switch version, we're now working on Xenoverse 2 for the Switch, so we want players to first go there, and then we can talk about FighterZ".

Whether or not a Nintendo Switch version of the game is in the works, they don't want to confirm or deny just yet. However, some fans may take issue with this for a couple of different reasons. Unlike other fighting games based on anime series, such as Naruto and other Dragon Ball properties, Dragon Ball FighterZ will maintain the 2D anime art style. There's a ton of power in that handheld, digital horses under the hood that somehow make the most of the hardware to deliver games which are colourful to say the least.

Ever since Dragon Ball FighterZ was announced at E3 2017, excitement has steadily built up for the fighting game. According to the trailer, Trunks will be available to play as part of the closed beta. If XenoVerse 2 can succeed on that system, then perhaps a port of next year's Dragon Ball Fighter Z isn't too far off.

Dragon Ball FighterZ will launch in 2018 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
