Bandai Namco confirm the Nintendo Switch release date for Dragon Ball FighterZ, and details of the game’s World Tour.
Bandai Namco has announced that Dragon Ball FighterZ will be released worldwide for Nintendo Switch on September 28, 2018.
Fans – or, as we like to call them, customers – who pre-order the game will get two bonuses. The first is immediate access to Goku and Vegeta SSGSS, but it’s the second that makes pre-ordering a tempting proposition: a copy of the classic Super NES game: Dragon Ball Z: Super Butoden.
All other DLC characters added to the game following its initial release will be available day one for Switch. In addition, the Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Extra Pack 3 – which adds Super Baby Vegeta – is confirmed for a summer release on all platforms.
Meanwhile, the inaugural Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour will debut at this month’s CEO Fighting Game Championships. The event is the first of five Saga Events, with others to follow in the UK, France, Mexico, and Singapore. Two more events will also be confirmed soon.
Hervé Hoerdt, VP of marketing for Bandai Namco Europe, says:
“The passion from fans all around the world continues to make Dragon Ball FighterZ a huge success and we want to reward their extremely valuable support by creating the first ever worldwide tournament on a Dragon Ball video game. With the Dragon Ball FighterZ – World Tour, the best players across the globe will have the opportunity to compete against each other to determine the strongest of all.”
The CEO Fighting Game Championships will take place in Daytona Beach, Florida between June 29 -July 1, 2018. If you can’t make it, you can follow the action on the official Dragon Ball Z Twitch channel.
