In a recent interview, Bandai Namco has said that they are open to porting the new 2D Dragon Ball Fighter to Nintendo’s new console.
Bandai Namco announced Dragon Ball FighterZ at E3 which will be developed by Arc System Works. The trailer highlights the game’s anime style visuals and the competitive fighting game feel that you get from previous Arc System Works titles. Fans began to notice that Dragon Ball FighterZ will not be receiving a Nintendo Switch release. The game is currently being developed for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, leading some fans to come to the conclusion that Nintendo’s new console isn’t powerful enough to run the game.


Thankfully for Nintendo fans, Dragon Ball FighterZ producer Tomoko Hiroki has quickly shut down those rumors in a new interview with Game Blog. When asked if a Switch port is impossible, Hiroki offered a definitive denial. “I have no idea who said this, but it’s really not a question of the console’s power, ” Hiroki said. “We didn’t really encounter problems with the Switch version of Xenoverse 2.” Hiroki goes on to say that the Bandai Namco is open to porting the game to the Switch. “I’ll say that if we continue to receive demand from fans, we would go ahead with a Switch version Dragon Ball FighterZ. It likely wouldn’t release at the same time as the others, but we can envision it.”
Dragon Ball FighterZ is currently slated for an “early 2018” release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
