According to Bandai Namco, Dragon Ball FighterZ on the Switch is not an impossibility—provided there is enough demand for it on Nintendo’s platform.
Speaking to Gameblog.fr (adressing comments regarding the Switch’s performance capabilities), producer Tomoko Hiroki said:
I don’t know who told you that [the Switch cannot run Dragon Ball FighterZ] but this is not a question of power. 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. (Translation by IGN)
Dragon Ball FighterZ was revealed last week during Microsoft’s E3 press conference. Like many other Dragon Ball games, FighterZ is a fighting game sporting an anime-esque art style, one which could be mistaken “as actual 2D animation from the famed Dragon Ball series, according to Bandai Namco’s Eric Hartness. Unlike previous Dragon Ball titles, FighterZ will feature a three-versus-three battle system much like that of the Marvel Vs. Capcom series.
Dragon Ball FighterZ is expected to be released for PS4, Xbox One and PC in early 2018.
