Before we start reading, we would like to clarify that the article you are going to read next is part of a personal opinion, and that there is no data confirmed by Nintendo nor of Bandai namco, through which we can confirm that Dragon ball fighterz is coming to Nintendo Switch.
In this sense, think about a possible way out of Dragon ball fighterz on Nintendo’s new hybrid console it’s not a crazy idea if we take into account several factors. Let’s see them.
The sales success the game has had
The fight began last Friday, January 26, the day that Dragon Ball FighterZ came into our hands. Since then, and today, (February 2), the game has been distributed more than 2 million times worldwide, a very interesting fact.
The title, without a doubt, has been one of the most anticipated for this 2018, and as we tell you in our analysis, we think it returns to scene classic 2D combat of the years 90 in a precise, traditional way and quite faithful to the saga.
After the slight period of lights and shadows that passed the two titles of Dragon ball xenoverse, the most veteran players of the fighting genre, and the staunch followers of the mythical manga, they wanted with all their might a Dragon Ball video game that lived up to expectations. As we told you in our analysisWe think Bandai has done a great job in this regard.
Therefore, this is one of the main reasons why we think that a portability from Bandai’s game to the new Nintendo console, could see the light in the future.
The good reception of the critics
At a general level, critics have favorably treated Dragon ball fighterz. Not only at the video game media level, but also at the user level. In Metacritic we can see that the game has an 88 average mark, and by users a general grade of 8.5.
These data could serve Bandai namco, to realize the good work they have done with their new big bet, and since it has worked so well on the rest of the platforms, Why not do it on one of the best-selling consoles of recent times?
It would be a great business strategy
We are not experts, but we can foresee that, at the sales level, Dragon Ball FigherZ has recovered the investment with the sales of the game in PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. But… Why not take it a step further?
Nintendo Switch is a platform already owned by millions of people, and we think that, as the console controls are raised, it could fit perfectly with the control scheme of the new Dragon ball fighterz. In addition, the great factor of portability that the console can boast would be a perfect excuse to enjoy the fast-paced fighting that the game offers anywhere, and with anyone.
It is not the first Dragon Ball to come to Nintendo Switch
As many of you will know, Dragonball Xenoverse 2 is available from the month of September in the Nintendo hybrid platform. That Bandai Namco’s previous fighting game had a place in Switch gives a lot to think about.
Maybe it was a “Test” to see how the sales of a fighting game in the Dragon Ball genre were doing on Nintendo Switch. Or maybe the producers and developers were testing all the features of the console, adapting this game to the Joy-con, to study a future portability of Dragon Ball FighterZ.
In this sense, the fact that a game of Dragon ball already on Nintendo Switch, It can be an open door for future titles in the series on this platform.
The game’s producers have discussed possible portability of the game to Switch.
Last but not least, we have to remember that according to a producer of the game, there would be a possibility to see Dragon ball fighterz on the new platform Nintendo. Taking advantage of the departure of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 for Switch, Tomoko Hiroki, Game producer mentioned the following:
We want fans to play dragon ball xenoverse 2 first, and then we’ll talk about fighterz – tomoko hiroki (2017)
These are our 5 reasons to believe in an arrival of Dragon ball fighterz for Nintendo Switch … Now we have to know your opinion.
