Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 has now been confirmed to be arriving in the recently released Nintendo Switch this fall, much to the delight of fans. Previous reports said that a March 2018 launch in U.S. is likely, but it turns out that the console owners do not have to wait for long.
Nintendo Switch Version U.S. Release Date
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is currently only available to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, which is understandable since the Nintendo Switch was just launched in March. Bandai Namco did previously confirm that the game is coming to the console but also said that the U.S. will be getting it after it is released in Japan. Until today, a timeframe has not been confirmed so fans buckled up for a long wait.
Fortunately, it seems that fans now only have to wait a few months before the game comes to the U.S. The official Twitter account of Bandai Namco U.S. personally announced its release this year, but specific details have not been included. For now, American residents are relieved that Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is coming to the western shores around the same time as its launch in Japan.

As for the definite release date, we will keep our eyes open for any announcement from Bandai Namco. It is bound to come soon.
Nintendo Switch Additional Features
The fighting game has generally favorable reviews because of its characters and storyline. Even though the first installment was more highly regarded, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is still enjoyable to play and now it’s about to get more fun on the Nintendo Switch.
Forbes reports that players will be able to use the Joy-Cons to make some interesting moves. But the biggest feature that the PS4 and Xbox One consoles will not be able to replicate is the local multiplayer function of the Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 on the Nintendo Switch.
Because the home console is one that players can take with them on the go, it is possible to play against each other by taking control of each Joy-Con or join a six-player co-op battles through the Ad Hoc wireless support. This is exactly the essence of Nintendo’s platform, which is why it might offer a better experience of the title.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 DLC Pack 4
Meanwhile, the game is set to receive its fourth and final DLC in June, the Inquisitr previously reported. Loads of new features are expected to arrive with it, including new characters and the “Future Trunks Saga” from the anime Dragon Ball Super.
The characters mentioned are Super Saiyan Blue Vegito, which will also bring new moves, and Fused Zamasu (or Fusion Zamasu in the anime). Those who watch the anime will remember the latter to be the villain of the “Future Trunks Saga,” who is a fusion of Black Goku and Future Zamasu via the Potara earrings.

This makes it exciting for the gamers, as the character will be playable. They will be able to use his ultra-powerful attacks against NPCs or other players, which might lead people to complain about him being overpowered. There are various overpowered characters in the game that are already frustrating other players who are yet to unlock those, so the addition of another powerful being will undoubtedly cause a divide between gamers.
There are other expected inclusions of the Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 DLC Pack 4, but Bandai Namco has yet to specifically detail each one. More information is expected to come as its launch in June nears.
Back to the Nintendo Switch version, it is currently unknown when the DLCs will start arriving once the base game has been ported to the console. It is possible that all expansions will be packaged with the base game upon its official release. More details on that soon.
