Dragon Ball FighterZ brings the fight to Nintendo Switch

It's fashionably late, but on the plus side, now you can bring the beatdown with you on the go.

Bandai Namco's licensed fighter, Dragon Ball FighterZ, has officially arrived on Nintendo Switch in the Americas. The 2D fighter previously arrived on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam earlier this year.

In Dragon Ball FighterZ on Nintendo Switch, players can enjoy simplified controls designed around single Joy-Con play, 1 vs. 1 ad hoc play, 1-6 multiplayer capability, 60 FPS and 3 vs. 3 tag/support. Check out the game's promotional trailer, embedded below, which supplies an improbable scenario that highlights all of those features.

"Dragon Ball FighterZ has rocked both Dragon Ball fans and gamers alike since its initial launch in January, and now, it's time to rock Nintendo Switch players," said Wilson Cheng, Senior Brand Manager at Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc., who may or may not have asked Santa for a rocking chair for Christmas this year. "We can't wait to watch an all new audience experience the hard-hitting, fantastic Super Saiyan powers, and deadly rivalries on Nintendo's ground-breaking portable platform."

Bandai Namco indicates those who preordered the game will have early access to SSGSS Goku and Vegeta, as well as the classic Japanese version of Dragon Ball Z: Super Butoden that debuted on the Super Famicom.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is rated T for Teen by the ESRB, and should be available at your favorite stores. Unless it has somehow sold out. And hey, stranger things have happened!
