Dev for Dragon Ball FighterZ States Switch Doesn’t Lack Power for the Game, Could Come With High User Demand

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is coming to Switch, according to Bandai Namco. However, a fighter game called Dragon Ball FighterZ isn’t… at least for now. There were some reports and rumors swirling around the internet that it wasn’t coming to Switch simply because the system couldn’t handle it from a power perspective. Not necessarily an unheard of proposition given the current state of the gaming industry.

However, that’s not the case at all. Game Blog (a French site) spoke with Dragon Ball FighterZ producer Tomoko Hiroki and he quickly clarified this issue. He said the game not being on Switch has nothing to do with power or capability and that porting over Xenoverse 2 itself was really easy. He goes on to clarify that if enough fans show demand for it, they definitely can bring the game over to Switch, though it would not arrive at the same time as the other versions.

Unfortunately, no reason was actually given for why the game wasn’t just included for Switch in the first place.
