Bandai Namco took to Facebook to announce that Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 would be coming to the Switch, on September 22nd 2017.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is the sequel to Dragon Ball Xenoverse, a fighting role playing game that allows players to create their own fighter in the Dragon Ball world. The game includes all the in-game and DLC content from Dragon Ball Xenoverse plus a portion of the remaining characters from Dragon Ball Z like Dodoria, Zarbon and Android 16, but leaving other ones like Dr. Gero or Demon King Dabura. Notable was the addition of movies/OVAs characters like Lord Slug, Cooler or Turles and the stage Tree of Might, due to the theory these characters aren’t canon. In total, the games has 126 characters, including newcomer from Dragon Ball Super like the universe 6 mercenary Hit, Future Trunks and Goku Black, the last one as a pre-order bonus character.
Switch-specific features include:
• 6 Player Local Play Mode (additional Switch hardware required)
• Use individual Joy-Con controllers to play with friends locally
No news on whether or not the first Dragon Ball Xenoverse would come to Switch too, as Xenoverse 2 makes use of a save data carry over feature. This feature allows you to transfer your previous created hero from Xenoverse to Xenoverse 2, along with their equipment and skills.
Stay tuned for more news as it occurs!
