Dragon Ball FighterZ Nintendo Switch Release Date and Pre-Order Bonuses Announced

It has been just over a week since Bandai Namco Entertainment announced that Dragon Ball FighterZ, the 2.5D sprite based fighter developed by Arc System Works, would be released onto the Nintendo Switch at some point this year; and today the publisher have confirmed that it will be released on the 28th September 2018.

Announced as a worldwide 28th September 2018 release this Nintendo Switch release of Dragon Ball FighterZ will feature all of the same ‘intense’ arcade combat as the previous Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC release; with features including a unique stand-a-lone story and both offline and online competitive modes. Although this Switch release won’t contain the previously released DLC these characters will all be available to purchase on launch day; with newcomers Broly, Bardock, Fused Zamasu and SSGSS Vegito being made available.

In addition to the release date announcement Bandai Namco Entertainment went on to explain that those who pre-order Dragon Ball FighterZ will not only receive ‘early’ access to SSGSS Goku and SSGSS Vegito (of which takes several hours to obtained as explained here) but Switch owners will also receive the Super Famicom game; Dragon Ball Z Super Butoden. For those unfamiliar Dragon Ball Z: Super Butoden is a Super Famicom (Super Nintendo/SNES) game featuring the original 2D Arcade fighter experience.

Dragon Ball FighterZ will be available for the Nintendo Switch from the 28th September 2018 but in the meantime the game is available for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC.
