Bandai Namco have announced on their official Facebook page that the Nintendo Switch version of their extreme hairstyle fighting game Dragon Ball FighterZ will be coming on 28 September 2018. They have also added an odd pre-order bonus.

Dragon Ball FighterZ's Nintendo Switch launch is still more than three months away so Bandai Namco had to offer some incentive for players to start pre-ordering the game. This incentive came in the form of Dragon Ball Z: Super Butoden, a rather underrated SNES game that will also be ported to Nintendo Switch.

Players who pre-order Dragon Ball FighterZ will also recieve Goku and Vegeta SSGSS from the very beginning, on top of the download code for Dragon Ball Z: Super Butoden. They have also added that all DLC released previously for PC, PS4 and Xbox One will be made available right at launch but it may throw some people off since they will be paying full price and will be expected to administer additional cash injections for each fighter pack.

As it stands now, Dragon Ball FighterZ has four DLC fighters at the price of 4.99 in either USD or Euro or 3.99 in British Pound Sterling. If players wanted to have access to all the fighters from day one, they would have to shell out 79,95 USD/ Euro or £61,95. This gets even worse since there are four additional paid fighters on the way, at the same price as previous ones.

Bandai Namco did offer the fighter pass as a slightly discounted bundle though, standing at $/ €34,99 or £29,99. That said, players who purchase the pass will not know what they get with the four unrevealed fighters. There is no indication if they will be characters that would be appealing to them or how well balanced they will be.

On the bright side, the SNES Dragon Ball Z game is definitely worth checking out so players who are keen on getting Dragon Ball FighterZ might as well pre-order it. They have probably even tried the game out already on another platform.
