Dragon Ball FighterZ will be launched on the Nintendo Switch in September, after having originally been released on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Nintendo’s E3 presentation saw a huge number of major game announcements, including Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (which will include every fighter in the franchise’s history), Super Mario Party, and ports of Fortnite and Dragon Ball FighterZ. However, no date was revealed for FighterZ.
Now, Bandai Namco has announced that Dragon Ball FighterZ will come to Nintendo Switch on September 28th.
Fans who pre-order the game now will unlock Super Saiyan Blue Goku and Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta, as well as a free copy of the 1993 Dragon Ball: Super Butoden, a classic game on the Super Nintendo console. The copy included with FighterZ will be the Japanese version of the game, as the Dragon Ball games had yet to gain popularity in America, so were only release in Japan and Europe.
From Arc System Works, FighterZ features 24 characters, including classic Dragon Ball Z characters like Goku, Vegeta, and Piccolo, as well as newer Dragon Ball Super characters like Goku Black, Hit, and more. Four DLC fighters have already been announced – Fused Zamasu, Super Saiyan Blue Vegito, Bardock and Broly – with four more to be announced in coming months.
Taking inspiration from the gameplay mechanics of Marvel vs. Capcom, the game allows players to fight in 3-on-3 tag-team matches, and unlike most of the Dragon Ball games, FighterZ will explore an original story. Upon release, the game became a huge success, already selling an impressive 2.5 million copies.
