Earlier this week, Bandai-Namco finally revealed the release date of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 for the Nintendo Switch in Europe and North America: September 22nd. And today, the company finally revealed a trailer for this version of the game, showcasing the various exclusive features and elements.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 on Nintendo Switch will be playable with up to 6 player in local multiplayer (online play will also be available). If you have a friend, you will be able to share a Joy-Con with them, allowing you to play together without any extra controller.
And as we expected, players will able to use the Joy-Cons to trigger various techniques such as the famous kamehameha (using motion controls). But that’s not all: you can also control various vehicles using motion controls, though obviously, they will not be mandatory.
Regarding content, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 will include “Time Patrol”, the main story of the first game, along with the main story of the sequel.
On the technical side, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 will run at 1600×900 when playing in TV Mode, and 1280×720 when playing in handheld mode. Also, resolution can fluctuate depending on the situation (meaning it will sometimes drop below the aforementioned values when things are getting real busy on the screen).
As for the framerate, it will be 60fps in 1 vs 1 battles, but it will drop to 30fps at any other time… meaning the game will run at 30fps most of the time.
Finally, in Japan, Bandai-Namco will give a special code as an early purchase bonus, that unlocks all the characters from main story (in other words, more than 70 characters available right from the start). Right now, it’s not clear whether Europe and North America will also have that offer, but no doubt we will get an announcement about that in the upcoming weeks.
Here’s the overview trailer for Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 on Nintendo Switch:
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 (Switch) comes out on September 7th in Japan, and September 22nd in Europe and North America.
