Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2's Switch port releases Fall 2017 in Japan, includes motion controls


I did a Kamehameha, dammit!

Some new details have surfaced about the port of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 to the Switch. Along with the requisite motion controls (you can "perform" a kamehameha) comes ad-hoc co-op play for up to six players, single joy-con  1v1 multiplayer action and a few time limited bonuses for picking up the game on launch.

The first timed special comes in the form of the entire campaign from the first Xenoverse game. Called "Time Patrol," there is no time frame for how long this option will be available. I'm guessing it will be free DLC for the first few weeks or so. The second bonus will be available in first print copies of the game and it pertains to a code to unlock 70 characters immediately.

No word on whether or not this port will be heading West, but the game will be launching in Fall 2017 in Japan. The Switch is region free, so if you've been waiting for this game on a portable console, at least you can play it on a US unit.
