Dragon Ball FighterZ will be a multi-platform fighter available for the Sony PlayStation 4, Microsoft Xbox One, and PC/Steam. One console that the game has not been announced for is the Nintendo Switch.
The question is, will it ever come to the Nintendo Switch? In a recent interview with French website GamesBlog, Dragon Ball FighterZ producer (who works for Bandai Namco Entertainment), Tomoko Hiroki mentioned it is absolutely possible. There was no difficulty for the developers to port over Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 to the Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo Switch has enough power to back Dragon Ball FighterZ, without any question.
Hiroki-san says if fans continue to request Dragon Ball FighterZ on the Nintendo Switch, then developer Arc System Works will also create a Nintendo Switch version. The only caveat is if there will be a Dragon Ball FighterZ on Nintendo Switch, then it might not be released at the same time as the other platforms.
The likely reason we at Saiyan Island believe Dragon Ball FighterZ would not be released at the same time as the other platforms is because development for a Switch version has not yet been started. Dragon Ball has been successful on PS4, Xbox One, and PC/Steam, however, it is still unproven on a current-gen Nintendo platform. We believe the initial plan may have been to wait and see what the sales for Xenoverse 2 on Switch will be like before proceeding with development of it on Switch.
We at Saiyan Island have seen many fans request a Nintendo Switch version and we ourselves very much want a Nintendo Switch version. We’ll be able to play Dragon Ball FighterZ at home on platforms come early 2018. However, to play Dragon Ball FighterZ on the go, now that would be quite the satisfying experience unattainable anywhere else. Our advice is for fans to tweet to Bandai Namco on Twitter to express interest and purchase Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 on the Nintendo Switch when it becomes available later year (the release date for Japan is confirmed to be September 7). We think doing both will cement the fate of Dragon Ball FighterZ and any other future Dragon Ball games to be released on the Nintendo Switch.
We at Saiyan Island have made our tweet to Bandai Namco Entertainment. Give us your energy through a retweet and let Bandai Namco know you want to see Dragon Ball FighterZ on the Nintendo Switch!
