Arc System Works' excellent Dragon Ball fighting game, Dragon Ball FighterZ, is finally coming to the Nintendo Switch this fall. Today, Bandai Namco announced that an open beta test is on its way, beginning in August. It will include a swath of new multiplayer features, like 1v1, 2v2, and offline six-party member match modes when the Switch version debuts on September 28.
If you pre-order the game now, you get a pretty awesome surprise with it: a downloadable version of the Super Famicom title Dragon Ball Z: Super Butoden. If you don't remember editing all the sprites from that game you could so you could make your own custom Z Fighter, then you're not living your best life. Period. The game was originally released back in 1993, and features your favorite fighters as well as their Super Saiyan forms.

Dragon Ball FighterZ has been an extremely popular and well-received fighting game based on the long-running shonen anime series, and it's going to be a blast to be able to take it on the go with you with the Switch version. Get ready for the Switch beta by doing some hand exercises now so you can wipe the floor with your main by the time this fall rolls around. It's sooner rather than later now, you know.
