Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 for Nintendo Switch Has Over 400,000 Copies Shipped

Posted on November 8, 2017

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 on the Nintendo Switch is a success! According to Wall Street Journal tech reporter Takashi Mochizuki, over 300,000 copies of the game were shipped worldwide by September 30 and as of today during Bandai Namco Entertainment’s latest financial results briefing, over 400,000 copies of the game have been shipped. From our understanding, those are just physical shipments of the game and it does not include digital sales. In total, as of last week, Bandai Namco announced that total shipments and digital sales for Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 across all platforms – PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Switch – had exceeded 3.3 million.

The Switch version of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 was launched on September 7 in Japan and September 22 in the Americas and Europe so 400,000 copies shipped is quite impressive! The success of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 and other Bandai Namco games on the Nintendo Switch has led the company to announce there will be three Switch-exclusive titles released worldwide in the future. No information was provided beyond that point, just that Bandai Namco will announced details for them in the Spring and Summer of 2018.

Despite the success of Xenoverse 2 and other Bandai Namco titles, no information has been announced for a much-desired Nintendo Switch version of Dragon Ball FighterZ. At this point, we wait and hope for the best!

    Even now Xenoverse 2 is selling well. I’m somewhat surprised.

  • This could potentially mean FighterZ on the switch with these numbers

  • BudokaiLimit

    GUYS HOW DO I GET 800 TP MEDALS please

  • dbz

    since xeno 2 sold 400,000 copies they might release xeno 3

  • dbz

    Naruto > ichigo

  • dbz

    that screw attack battle was epic

  • Rafael

    You need login in the game, everyday, until March 2018.
    Everyday you will get a little TP medal(10,i think)

  • thesagebeast

    shipped doesn’t mean sold

  • Mike Gilbson

    DBFZ lets Hope!

  • KDG

    That’d be nice I suppose. I don’t own a Switch, nor do I have any foreseeable plans to purchase one, so it won’t really benefit me any. But I’m sure FighterZ will find its way to the Nintendo Switch.

  • SM

    With those numbers, it has outdone the Xbox Version

  • Raftleon

    oh it’s out?

    going to go watch it now.

  • Raftleon

    i like kefla’s design specially her ssj hair lol.

    looking forward to her “new” form and the return of UI goku and possibly yet “another” form.

  • Goku Black

    눈_눈 Really…? Admin…cmon. We need better news.

  • Yomi

    Wild hair.

  • uhMayzedHD

    No, It doesn’t Ship and Sold to Customers are two different things.
    Theses games have been ship to stores. There isn’t any accurate number on how many people have own XV2 on the Switch.

    But I would guess FZ is going to end up on their.

  • Mugetsu a’k’a SS4 Gohan

    Damn, That‘s actually a lot

  • I hope so, cause I am already getting a switch for Fire Emblem Warriors, Mario Odyssey, Attack on titan 2, and Splatoon 2. Now, if this could just get launched on it my life would be complete lmao

  • Enturax/Turbotrup

    Actually, it was bad. I admit I like Ichigo more but let’s be honest – it’s clear as hell they didn’t even watch Naruto and Bleach. Or at least not Bleach as they ignored tons of Ichigo’s feats and even misinterpreted some, like with his attack’s strength – they said his single hit can be as strong as his previous Getsuga Tenshous which is WRONG, those idiots don’t even see a difference between AIR PRESSURE caused by an attack and the ATTACK ITSELF. So, yeah, the AIR PRESSURE from the attack was already as strong as his GT which BTW they didn’t even mention how strong it is TO BEGIN WITH.
    They didn’t mention his fight against Kenpachi.
    They didn’t mention his fight against Gin.
    They didn’t mention his fight against Grimjaw.
    They said he was AS strong as 1st Transformation of Ulquiorra which is WRONG, since the Arrancar wasn’t even hurt by his Getsugas and left Ichigo half dead before he went into his 2nd transformation.

    They also said Naruto is good or great at taijutsu…hahahaha, what a bs. Speaking of Naruto, they didn’t mention his elemental powers or that he is a great strategist…

    This fight was sooo rushed that only Naruto fanboys approve it.

  • dbz

    I like Naruto more than ichigo idk much about ichigo but it was nice to see his capabilities Naruto never use all elements and naruto never use taijustsu in less I miss something Ik that Naruto uses wind style for his rasenshiriken and he uses 9 tails chakra as for ichigo maybe they might use a different version of him with his new abilities

  • Megalan

    I wish they’d make a sequel to Burning Blood. Not sure if OG BB should be on switch, it’s already on vita, but vita isn’t a console…

  • randy191993

    As long as Goku still wins and Kefla doesn’t bullshit herself into above-god-tier, yeah, i like that idea. But even as a fusion they shouldn’t be able to defeat Goku in a mode that most Gods of Destruction cannot even achieve.

  • randy191993

    ? Naruto IS good at Taijutsu. Of course not to a Lee or Gai level but he is skilled in taijutsu. Almost all his fights had him use his fists at some point, he knows Frog-Kumite, and using his Bijuu Mode he got the speed for it too. Let’s not forget his final battle with Sasuke and later with Momoshiki were nearly 100% taijutsu as well. Sure he’s no Taijutsu-Expert, but he isn’t bad at all.

  • randy191993

    Well they did announce two more DLC Packs first. But after that, yeah, they almost 100% likely will. I’d assume that we’ll get SSG in that one then, since they pretty much steal 100% of their stuff from Dragonball heroes, and Dragonball Heroes avatars are now permanent Super Saiyan Gods.

  • Leo LeiGto

    lol. they cant just create stuff… This is not CNN or BBC or Fox Or NPR. Let Saiyan Island do its thing.

  • Leo LeiGto

    She wont stand a chance against his UI… She is only doing okay right now because hes literally teaching them how to get stronger and trying to tap back into his own UI.

  • Leo LeiGto

    Is X box Still a thing? go figure…

  • Navok76

    Every week you get 40

  • Enturax/Turbotrup

    Yeah, but notice how he uses fists successfully ONLY when he catches his opponent off guard by making his clones attack 1st and such. The beginning of the fight against Sasuke was, pretty much, all filler – but even while we’d count it as canon, we can clearly see Sasuke being a better fighter as Naruto can’t keep up with him AFTER making clones. We can even see Naruto trying to spam clones when fighting Sasuke at close range but the Uchiha constantly stops his hand seals. Then again, Sasuke had Sharingan…

    But sure, he is not bad but not great either; he wouldn’t have chances against Ichigo if they fought at close range.

  • Enturax/Turbotrup

    Both of them went into their final forms waaay too fast. Especially Ichigo because he loses all of his power after his final technique. SA also mentioned that Ichigo blocked a nuke in his Hollow form but in their fight he is badly hurt after a single Kurama’s punch…

  • xxbrothawizxx

    Likely picking it up on Black Friday. I’m guessing they’re going to sell a good amount of copies with the majority of retailers with Switch games discounting it to $20. I didn’t love the combat when I played a little bit of multiplayer, but I’m going to give it another chance.

  • Koibito888

    Worst of all I think was saying naruto was light speed. All the problems with using data book info like that aside, even if the beam was light speed naruto definitely only dodged the speed at which madara could turn his head/turn the beam towards him. That was garbage and just not how you analyze that sort of feat.

  • Koibito888

    More proof that Ultra Instinct (the speed boost) and ‘breaking through his shell’ (the power boost) are two separate things – he definitely activated one after the other in the new episode.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Kid buu and Gotenks should be in fighter z

  • Enturax/Turbotrup

    Yeah, that’s a typical mistake almost everyone makes from what I’ve noticed.
