After a series of speculations, finally, Bandai Namco has confirmed that the widely played game "Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2" will be released in Nintendo Switch. The good news was published from V Jump magazine. While fans are waiting for the release of the fourth update of the game scheduled to be released this June, the game publisher has something up its sleeves for the Nintendo Switch users.

Release details

According to Bandai Namco, the game will be released on the hybrid console in Japan first this coming Fall. For the rest of the regions, the release will be announced soon. Aside from that, "Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2" on Nintendo Switch will also have the Wii-like motion controls soon.

Motion control

Motion controls will enable players to do classic moves.


It is a special attack feature, which will allow players to use the Joy-Cons to perform a Kamehameha motion to propel the attack. It can be recalled that this was last seen applied on the Wii version of the highly popular Budokai Tenkaichi installments. It was most likely the same system that was utilized on the not-so-popular game "Dragon Ball Z Kinect." These motion controls are not really new to the console since the game's ARMS utilizes it.

The motion control that will be released for the game on its new platform will be optional. So players who do not want to use it do not need to worry since they can still play the game in a standard way. It will be worth noting which option the fans will prefer using when playing the game in the hybrid console.
