Many Dragon Ball FighterZ fans have taken it to Twitter to run a petition for Nintendo Switch release of the upcoming fighting game based from the series. So far, 21,000 fans have supported the tweet that’ll hopefully make Bandai Namco consider the Switch port.
SaiyanIsland reported that their tweet petition has already reached 21, 569 retweets as of today. They’ve urged the fans to show their support through retweeting their post.
Meanwhile, a Switch petition for FighterZ on change.org has a little over 15,000 supporters. The petition needs over 9,000 more supporters to reach its 25,000 target.
For now, Nintendo Switch fans are eagerly waiting for Bandai Namco to confirm this title for their console. All the other current generation consoles like PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (Windows) will get this title by early 2018. Bandai Namco has yet to reply to SaiyanIsland’s petition.
Last E3 2017, Dragon Ball FighterZ was announced during the Microsoft showcase. Many Dragon Ball and fighting game fans were hyped as they’re seeing a fast-paced gameplay loaded with fantastic visual style to it. More than just being a hype game, Arc System Works and Bandai Namco Entertainment provided some decent competition to Capcom’s upcoming Marvel vs Capcom entry. Gameplay-wise, the E3 convention attendees also confirmed that Dragon Ball FighterZ doesn’t have complicated controls.
In addition to its great graphics and simple gameplay, Dragon Ball FighterZ producer Tomoko Hiroki confirmed that they’re open to porting the title to the Switch console. Hiroki confirms that the Switch has enough processing power to run the title, which means it’s release is likely. It’s low skill ceiling requirement will be able to attract many fighting game veterans and even fresh newcomers as many people can play this fighting game well.
The game’s producer also adds that if the Switch port does get greenlit, it shouldn’t be expected to release with the other platforms in early 2018. Fans should keep an eye out on later video game expos this 2017 like Gamescom and Tokyo Game Show for any new Dragon Ball FighterZ announcements.
