Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2's Switch commercial is flashy, but functional


It gets the job done despite camp

Unlike the Wii U, we could eventually live in a universe where we see games launch on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch. Typing those former three has become muscle memory for me, as that's generally the agreed upon trifecta for the last five years or so, but the popularity (or Nintendo's push to make it popular) of the Switch has changed that.

This commercial for Dragon Ball XenoVerse 2 on Switch is over-the-top and campy as hell, but it actually does a decent job at showing you what the game is about in a general sense and in regards to what the Switch port offers. 

I think it's one of the most effective Switch commercials to date actually, as Namco Bandai spends an inordinate amount of time on each mode of play (TV, portable, local) in an easily digestible fashion. Is it cheesy? Sure, but it gets the job done.
