‘Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2’ Comes To The Nintendo Switch In Japan This Fall

The excellent Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 will finally be coming to the Nintendo Switch in Japan sometime this fall.

I briefly played the Switch version of Xenoverse 2 at the unveiling of the console in Tokyo back in January. It played very well and I thought it was something that made sense to come to a console like the Switch, as its local multiplayer options were excellent.

Considering that the game is already available on PS4, Xbox One and PC, the Switch version has a few interesting additions to make it worthwhile.

The first is that it will support local wireless Ad-Hoc co-operative multiplayer with up to 6 people. In addition, there will be extra motion support for the Joy-Cons. With one of these modes being the Ultimate Techniques option, where players can recreate their own Kamehameha attacks among other things. You can also do local two player battles via the split Joy-Con controllers.

Following that, the game will also include the Time Patrol storyline from the first Dragon Ball Xenoverse as part of a time-limited bonus and a code for people that buy the game at launch where you can unlock 70 playable characters from the start.

As for the DLC for Xenoverse 2, it’s not clear what’s happening with that in regards to the Switch version. It’s likely that we’ll see the DLC come to the Switch version of Xenoverse 2 at some point but when that will be remains unclear.

Talking of DLC though, the PS4, Xbox One and PC versions of Xenoverse 2 will be getting its fourth DLC pack pretty soon and that will include Super Saiyan Blue Vegito and Fused Zamasu.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is released in Japan on the Switch this fall. There is no news of the Western release of this Switch version yet.
