“This is not a question of power.”
A Nintendo Switch version of Dragon Ball FighterZ is being considered, but only if there is enough demand from fans, according to Bandai Namco.
“I don’t know who told you that [the Switch cannot run Dragon Ball FighterZ] but this is not a question of power,” producer Tomoko Hiroki told Gameblog.fr (translated by IGN). “We are not experiencing any difficulties with the Switch version of Xenoverse 2. I would say that if we carry on getting requests from fans, we will manage to create a version for Switch as well. The latter may not come out at the same time as the others, however we might consider it.”
Officially revealed during E3, Dragon Ball FighterZ is currently scheduled to be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in early 2018. The 2D fighter features a 3v3 team battle system and is being developed by Arc System Works, the studio behind Guilty Gear.
A closed beta will take place “before the end of the summer” on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, according to Bandai Namco. Further details about the beta will be revealed in the near future.
