Bandai Namco talks Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 features on Nintendo Switch

The latest Dragon Ball game is almost here. Bandai Namco’s fighting game is set take full advantage of its Nintendo Switch platform.

Super Switch Saiyan

If you’re a Dragon Ball fan, and a Switch owner, then you’re probably well aware of DBZX2. Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is coming up very soon now (September 22nd), and it’s -so far- looking like a winner.

But nice graphics are just the cherry on top of this Saiyan sundae according to publisher Bandai Namco. That’s because Xenoverse 2 has been designed to be a Switch game though and through.

Nintendo’s latest console was designed with some unique features after all. And what Xenoverse 2 has up its sleeve is actually pretty awesome. Listed are things that honestly don’t need to be said, like being able to play on the TV or take Xenoverse 2 on the go. I mean, this is the Switch, we already know we can do that. Though, there’s some interesting bits to go along with that.

For starters, it seems that you won’t be able to play the campaign away from the Switch’s dock. And each configuration that the actual console can be put into, presents a different play possibility.

In a way, that’s kind of neat, but it’s also sort of limiting. Could it be that the Switch in handheld mode just isn’t capable of doing some of what Xenoverse 2 calls for?

Check out what I mean in the bullets below.

  • TV-Mode: Play through the entire DRAGON BALL Xenoverse 2 storyline.
  • Handheld Mode: Take DRAGON BALL Xenoverse 2 for Nintendo Switch with you on the go!
  • Table-Top Mode: Share the Joy-Con controllers and battle a friend on the same screen.
  • Six player Co-op Mode: Team up with friends to take on huge bosses where cooperation and strategy are key to victory.
  • Three vs. Three Online Matchmaking Mode: Form two teams of three Dragon Ball warriors and battle against each other for supremacy!
