Dragon Ball FighterZ could come to Switch if demand is high


Any port in a Death Storm

The jaw-dropping Dragon Ball FighterZ (it's good!) from Arc System Works (Guilty Gear, BlazBlue) is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC in "early 2018." It may also come to Nintendo Switch, but if it does, it'll come late. And only if fans demand it.

Speaking to French outlet GameBlog, Dragon Ball FighterZ producer Tomoko Hiroki explained that porting Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 has been smooth and that it isn't a lack of power that kept Arc System Works from developing this new fighter for Switch. If fans demand it, it'll be done (there's an online petition with over 1,800 signatures at time of writing), but it understandably will not release at the same time as the PS4/Xbox One/PC version. For fans of recent Nintendo consoles, feeling like a third-party afterthought might be familiar.
