Dragon Ball FighterZ (Switch) Is a Final Flash to the Face

It looks like we're heading to a future where you can dunk Gokus wherever you want.

At last week's E3, Bandai Namco was demonstrating their upcoming port of Dragon Ball FighterZ for Switch. The game was announced for Switch during the E3 Nintendo Direct. FigtherZ took the world by storm when it came out on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 earlier this year, and it looks like those who opted to wait for a Switch version will be rewarded with a very solid port.

I'm not going to break down the game's systems, as this is a port of an already well-documented title and I'm hardly qualified to do it anyway. What I will say is the game felt fast, fun, and looked great in motion. Of all the games at E3, it was one of the few I kept finding myself returning to for another round. Fans of the Dragon Ball universe are sure to find this game a treat, but the speed and responsiveness of the game should appeal to non-fans as well.

We were able to capture some direct feed of my terrible play, and have created a comparison video between it and the PS4. Besides some obvious visual differences, it seems like Bandai Namco's promise that the Switch version would be comparable will be fully realized.

Dragon Ball FighterZ for Switch is coming out later this summer.

These are good headlines. Catchy without being clickbait. Somebody give James a raise!

I checked out the PS4 version from the library, and played through that. However, now I'm going to actually buy the game, this time with the Switch version! Excited to replay FighterZ!

The great thing about Dragon Ball FighterZ is that the game still looks good even if you’re bad at it which works out well for me. My friend bought it on PS4 and we dabbled a bit. I’m really excited to play through this.

Awesome comparison video.  The game's art style lends well to being downgraded without drastic difference (colors definitely appeared more faded in the Switch version). 

Wonder if there'll be any graphics options in-game, so you could play around with the game in a weird old-school style.
