Bandai Namco have announced that Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 will be coming to the Nintendo Switch later this year.
A specific date, other than fall, has yet to be confirmed. However, the good news – if this Tweet from Bandai Namco US is anything to go by – is that the game appears to be heading to the West at the same time as Japan.
The Nintendo Switch version of the game will be tweaked to take advantage of some of the console’s features, including optional motion controls for battles, local multiplayer for up to six players, and the ability to play local battles using two Joy-Con controllers on one system.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 was initially released on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in October last year. It currently has a Metacritic score of 72, with many reviews praising the game’s characters, story, and volume of content.
DLC pack 4 will be coming to those platforms next month, and will include two new characters: Fused Zamasu and SSGSS Vegito. There’s no news on whether the DLC will be included in the Switch release, or made available to download separately. Regardless, it’s good to see the Switch get a version of the game, and it’s particularly heartening to see it being optimised for the platform.
