Finally. Been holding out. If it's good, I will pick it up day 1.

1080 p 60fps confirm, it can't be bad at all.

Ok so there's apparently direct feeds from the game running on Switch, and if that is the case, it's not only 60fps (which is the most important thing for a fighting game) but 1080p as well. Well done Arcsys.

Should have been released along with the other versions. The switch can't be getting ports months after release when the hype is dying.

Are you suggesting delaying this game 5 months just to service the switch?|

Or that it was ready 5 months ago and they delayed it for no reason?

And to be clear that is 5 months just for an announcement.
Is there any actual release date for the game? So they would be delaying the game on three systems for a long time to service one system.

Good, its a good game


Hiku (on 12 June 2018)

As I expected/hoped. But it better not run below 60fps. Its Arcys, so I trust they won't mess with the framerate for a real fighting game. but Bandai did that for Xenoverse, so I'm not entirely sure.

we can hope for all dlc included?


Bandorr (on 12 June 2018)

Based on Xenoverse 2? You are better on hoping for a cheaper season pass.

And looking at footage it is 60fps! But DLC isn't included because it's Bandai Namco and the Switch so of course it isn't.


AngryLittleAlchemist (on 12 June 2018)

was DLC included for any other release?

DBZF released THIS year. So yeah it hasn't been a year.

Woops my bad, nm. Still, I do hope there will be cheaper DLC. A discount or something.

the question is the price and if there will be less fps or details on switch. I have it on PS4 for 34.99 euros, i like it :) the fights are good, but the game is not so big.


Bandorr (on 12 June 2018)

Based on Xenoverse 2.
Full price, 720 resolution, 30 FPS.

I honestly feel like it's gonna be 60fps for Switch as well. The resolution I agree with it being 720p. Xenoverse is a bigger game with lots more to do than just the linear 2D fighting.
