Bandai Namco Entertainment America and Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe both announced on Monday that they will release the Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 video game for the Nintendo Switch console. Both companies will release the game in their respective regions this fall.
The July issue of Shueisha's V Jump magazine revealed on Saturday that Bandai Namco Entertainment will also release the Switch version in Japan this fall.
The release will include three new systems. The new ad-hoc co-op feature will let players connect and play with up to six players locally for the first time in the Dragon Ball Xenoverse series. Using the motion sensor will let players use ultimate techniques. For example, players will be able to hold the Joy-Cons in both hands to use a Kamehameha attack. Two players will be able to use Joy-Cons to battle against each other on one Nintendo Switch.
The release will offer the "Time Patrol" story from the first Dragon Ball Xenoverse game as a limited-time bonus. The first copies will include a download code to unlock more than 70 characters from the main story immediately.
Bandai Namco Entertainment will also release the previously revealed fourth DLC pack for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions of the game in the West. The DLC pack will include Super Saiyan Blue Vegito and Fused Zamasu, and will also include new moves and new missions. The DLC pack will release in June.
Bandai Namco Entertainment released the Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 game for PS4 and Xbox One in North America on October 25 and in Europe on October 28. The company released the game on PC via Steam worldwide on October 28, and released the game for PS4 in Japan on November 2.
Players fight to "protect the history of Dragon Ball" in the game. In the game's story, Time Patrollers go on missions to prevent history from being changed. However, there may be parts of history that they would like to change.
Dimps developed the title after it worked on the first Xenoverse game. The first game shipped for the PS4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 consoles in Japan on February 5, 2015. The game then debuted in the United States on February 24, 2015 and in Europe on February 27, 2015. The game also debuted on PC via Steam on February 27, 2015.
