Dragon Ball FighterZ: Nintendo Switch Version Possible If Demand Is There

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!

  • Hima

  • Hider Xera

    Eh Justice League and Infinity War and Spider-Man I guess, but I’m still on the fence about Peter being Tony’s beotch.

  • uhMayzedHD

    A Japanese console that is struggling to get a Japanese games even though Nintendo competitors is already announce getting it. This is why Nintendo is a joke if they came out with a normal powerful console tweets like this wouldn’t exist!

    When you own a Xbox or PS console you don’t even got to think if this game is coming to your console but if you Nintendo… Boy IDK if this coming to my platform of choice.

  • uhMayzedHD

    None at the moment.
    DC movies 8 outta 10 they be trash
    Marvel I’m not going to the movies and watch Spiderman that movie look lame espicially the voice actor

  • Rojai

    That Dragon Ball Super chapter…..

  • Rodrigo Monterier

    “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. ”

    Last time I heard something similar, it never got happen, even with almost 100k people demanding

  • Pat Louise

    In short..buy xenoverse 2 for the switch or we won’t make dbz fighters for the switch. Playing a next gen dbz game portable is a awsome thing to have so I don’t mind buying xenoverse 2 for the switch.

  • You are an idiot.

  • Super Shadow

    Not to mention that it’s gonna release in early 2018 which is pretty close

  • Ahtma ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵉᵖᶦᵗᵃᵖʰ

    Xbox One and PS4 have also been out for way longer than Switch, just saying. There is more of an audience on both of those consoles than Switch, what they’re saying is that they’re not against the idea of releasing a version on the Switch but they need to know that the interest is there in order to go forward with it.

    “This is why Nintendo is a joke” even though the Switch broke Nintendo sales records when it launched and of the top 5 best-selling consoles of all time Nintendo made 3 of them. The only one here that’s a joke is legitimately you, your projections for Nintendo’s success are childish at best and are on par with Mysterious Man and his “this game will fail without CaC” rhetoric.

  • F-sama

    Isn’t it ?

  • SwedishKoala

    “When you own a Xbox or PS console you don’t even got to think if this game is coming to your console” yeah that’s pure bullshit you do realize how many exlusives there exist for both consoles

  • Eren Jaeger

    if this game gets switch port I WILL buy the switch, already have a couple games in mind thats making me wanna buy it but not 100%

  • I applaud you for taking the effort to not just call him an idiot.

  • disqus_QhRQt4eaTM

    To be fair, That fact that you need to create a petition/notice to get a game on your system kinda highlights the problem that Arc System as well some other 3rd parties that the Switch is never in their consideration while Sony and Xbox come off as a no-brainer. That my system is not a part of the discussion when it comes to the process

  • Dark Ninja

    I agree they should do some kinda of promotion if you buy Xenoverse 2 you get like exclusive Dragon Ball FighterZ stuff.

  • Hell no.

  • uhMayzedHD

    I’m not talking about 1st Party Games I’m talking about 3rd Party

  • Pharaoh Gammy

    I don’t movies. Just the Marvel and DC just because

  • uhMayzedHD

    That wasn’t no excuse when PS4 and XONE release they was getting 3rd Party games WTF you talking about?

    You might be fine with about 6 games by end of the year that’s with little 3rd Party games include.

    Top 5 selling all time no it’s not far from it
    Top selling Nintendo console yeah it is.

    It’s not even in the Top 5 go look it up at launch sales.
    There success has nothing to do with gamers wanting games to play. They could sold 100m at launch and have no games to play, what I do with 100M sale figure on my controller? The reason people buy a console for is to play games not to play with sales figure.

    Nintendo is a joke of a cooperation and got people like Reggie defending there shitty party chat system.

    I hope you enjoy E3 and saw all thoses amazing 3rd Party games coming but I tell you 1 thing 99% of them aren’t coming to the Switch.

    Reason why Sony and Microsoft better companies because there not stupid enough to bring out weak ass console 4 years later weaker than there competitor and I know any 3rd Party game that has a trailer I know I will get them on my platform of choice.

  • uhMayzedHD

    The people that bought the Switch… I agree bunch of idiots they forgot about the Wii U.

  • Dark Ninja

    Why not?

  • YG Hadi

    I hope you know that Nintendo has the power to manupilate their sales at any time ? Nobody that i know owns a SWITCH, Rather then back in 2005 EVERYBODY owned a Wii.

  • Gent

    That joke is making money for them tho….

  • uhMayzedHD

    Yeah but that does nothing for me if I got games to play! I give them my money for games I want to play not expect to play 3-5 games a year

  • Linger

    Yes Nintendo is able to manipulate their sales by sacrificing the blood of a virgin to the dark lord and making a wish.

  • Gent

    Juet cause people around you doesn’t have one doesn’t mean it’s not selling smart guy

  • Gent

    Also people around him doesn’t have one..that means it’s not selling….it’s confirmed that the console is selling well when your neighbor has one

  • Linger

    Nintendo must have ran out of virgins to sacrifice.

  • uhMayzedHD

    I forgot what that movie was call a dead beat singer group tried sacrifice a virgin so they wish can come true. Then they became super popular. I think Nintendo saw that movie and tried it

  • Gent

    But Nintendo is in Japan right :o?

  • Linger

    Touche.

  • Kuræ™

    Well, it worked with Dark Souls so who knows.

  • Kuræ™

    I could be wrong on this but weren’t most of the games that launched on PS4/Xbone ports of games that released on the PS3/360?

  • Kuræ™

    Why would they post that?

  • uhMayzedHD

    Uncharted Collection
    God of War 3
    Last of Us

    That I can remember from PS side

  • uhMayzedHD

    Because it One Piece related

  • Kuræ™

    Yeah, but it’s not really significant that it needs a whole post.

    Bruh SI posted DB soda commerical and food

    Hm, you got me there.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    ????

  • Ahtma ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵉᵖᶦᵗᵃᵖʰ

    The actual sales numbers independent of Nintendo’s figures back it up. I’ve looked and there is no major discrepancy.

  • Goku Black

    Someone say…Dark Souls? >:3

  • Ryumancer

    Because it’s SAIYAN Island. -_-

  • Ryumancer

    No one cares. 😀

  • Atelier Tohka

    How about just enjoying the game regardless of the platform it’s released on?

  • lordrockman

    ????

  • Darkchief117

    Not everyone has an Xbox One or a PS4 soooo.

  • Atelier Tohka

    That’s your problem.

  • Atelier Tohka

    There are plenty of Japanese games out there that are PlayStation-exclusive, and the exclusivity isn’t even payed for by Sony.

  • Marko Tap

    I agree, we are only asking to port the game to Switch, this won’t influence on the other platforms it will be released, and it looks like Fighter Z will sell a lot so it shouldn’t be an economic problem since I’m sure it will be a succes on Switch too.

  • Marko Tap

    I don’t get your point, what are you trying to prove? Japanese companies always support Nintendo’s consoles, especially Portable consoles, look at the 3Ds, Ds, etc… I don’t see a reason to not release games on the Switch.

  • Atelier Tohka

    If you really care about the game, you’ll buy it on the platforms it is being released on. Holding your support for the game hostage because it’s on the wrong system is a huge disrespect to the developers and it should be treated as such.

  • Marko Tap

    I don’t understand companies, how do they expect the Switch to succes if it’s only it’s first year? Of course it won’t sell 5 million units in only one year, If you release more games on this platform, then people are willing to buy the Switch just to play these games, it’s called logic.

  • uhMayzedHD

    I’m talking about consoles.
    Nintendo king when it come to there handleheld but they are peasants when it comes to consoles.

    Nintendo struggles when it comes to getting the big 3rd Party games that people go crazy and 99% of thoses games aren’t coming to the Switch.

    It’s reason people go with Xbox or PS because it a guaranteed what ever 3rd Party game that caught your eye you can know for sure it coming to those 2 consoles and for casual market that only buy 1 console it will be Sony or Micrsoft console they will buy over Nintendo.

  • uhMayzedHD

    No is talking about PS Exclusive I’m talking about Nintendo 3rd Party Struggle

  • BlueStoic

    Not everyone wants to pay 250-400 dollars just to play one game, that goes for every platform

  • Atelier Tohka

    There are plenty of other games on PS4, Xbone, and PC, too. I play a ton of games on PS4.

  • BlueStoic

    That’s you. People are just merely asking for a port to switch. This game is gonna sell well regardless so it won’t hurt the developers at all.

  • Atelier Tohka

    Yes it will. Look at the Wii U. No one bought third-party games on that thing. Why should anybody be willing to believe that it’s going to be any different with the Switch?

  • BlueStoic

    Because the switch already sold out. It already has a bigger fanbase. Plus it’s also the most powerful handheld. You don’t think people will want to play on the go? You’re comparing a 4 year old system to a 4 month old system.

  • Atelier Tohka

    Prove you’d buy a Switch version. Buy the Dragon Ball game that is coming out on Switch. That will convince them more than anything. If the Switch port of Xenoverse 2 doesn’t sell, then you can forget about any other Dragon Ball games coming to this thing.

  • BlueStoic

    That was the plan from the get go

  • Atelier Tohka

    I’ll believe it when the sales charts show it.

  • BlueStoic

    Cool with me
