After the success of the Xenoverse series, its time to introduce a new classic 2D DRAGON BALL fighting game for this generations consoles. DRAGON BALL FighterZ is born from what makes the DRAGON BALL series so loved and famous: endless spectacular fights with its allpowerful fighters. Partnering with Arc System Works, DRAGON BALL FighterZ NINTENDO SWITCH maximizes high end Anime graphics and brings easy to learn but difficult to master fighting gameplay to audiences worldwide.
Key Features: * 3vs3 TAG/SUPPORT Allows players to train and master more than one fighter/style which brings deeper gameplay * HIGH-END ANIME GRAPHICS Using the power of the Unreal engine and the talented team at Arc System Works, DRAGON BALL FighterZ is a visual tour-de-force * SPECTACULAR FIGHTS Experience aerial combos, destructible stages, famous scenes from the DRAGON BALL anime reproduced in 60FPS and 1080p resolution (Higher resolution will be supported on PS4 Pro and Xbox Scorpio).
The Switch version performs identically to the PS4 and Xbox One versions, running smooth as silk, sharp as ever and with no input lag when playing with Joy-Cons, the Pro Controller, in docked or in handheld mode. Surprisingly, online battles (no Nintendo Online subscription needed) work flawlessly, absent of even a hint of lag or stutter. And even at odd hours (yeah, I was playing at 4am, what of it?), I never had any issue finding an opponent to battle against. Dragon Ball FighterZ is a AAA port of a AAA game, and the Switch version is definitely the one to get.
A surprising example of the technical capabilities of the Switch. It's almost identical to the previous versions, which means lots of great fighting moments, saiyan style.
FighterZ is an incredible game, and this version is as good as the others. It’s a shame the Joy-Con is not great for this type of game, because other than that, being able to play FighterZ anywhere is like a dream come true.
Dragon Ball FighterZ on the Switch is, simply put, the best fighting game we've seen on the system yet. Arc System Works went the extra mile in capturing the essence of the source material and distilled it into an incredible brawler that has lost nothing in the transition to Nintendo's hybrid console. The stunning visuals, intense action and easy-to-master controls make FighterZ a game all fans of the genre should have in their library. If you only play this kind of game casually, it remains a must-own.
Incredible, silky smooth fighting action paired with some incredible visuals makes this easily one of the best looking games on Switch, and quite possibly the best looking fighting game to ever grace a handheld.
This is the long sought-after bridge that links fans of the anime with hardcore virtual pugilists, and it deserves to serve as the template for all future Dragon Ball fighting games. [Issue #36 – November/December 2018, p. 88]
If you’re a Switch owner, you probably put a pretty hefty premium on portability. And honestly, the game’s performance is otherwise exemplary. For me, the load times and the game’s performance make this a good experience in short doses. If you want epic, fast-paced combat in a portable package, definitely give Dragon Ball FighterZ a chance.
