French site Game Blog spoke with Dragon Ball FighterZ producer Tomoko Hiroki. Despite what some may say, the game not being on Switch isn’t a matter of the system’s technical specs or lack of power. Hiroki added that there hasn’t been any trouble porting over Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2.

It isn’t clear why Bandai Namco and developer Arc System Works skipped on Switch for Dragon Ball FighterZ. However, Hiroki did say that if fans show their interest, they could bring it over. Hiroki did caution that Dragon Ball FighterZ may not come to Switch the same time as other versions, but they’re open to considering it.

From gameblog via Nintendoeverything

Time to tag Arcsys and Bandai Namco and show them there's some fan demand!

edit: also reminder that GGXrd runs on PS3 if some still have doubt it could run on Switch...

edit2 :
Good links to show support

I'd be down for a Switch port. Seeing as it's apparently 1080p/60fps on XB1 (& running on UE4), maybe the Switch could do DBFZ at 900p/60fps docked.

I thought UE4 worked great on the Switch?

EDIT: OOOOH, NOT for Tech reasons.

I bet if XV2 does well enough on Switch they'll get right on it.
The hugely positive reception for FighterZ might encourage them to port it as well.

It does, thread title is kinda poorly written. It's saying that there is no tech hurdle for FighterZ in Switch.

Do Arc System Works have Switch devkits? I don't remember seeing them on the partners list. Maybe that's the issue?

It does. They're admitting themselves that tech isn't the issue and the game could theoretically run on Switch, but something else is holding it back.

They are on the partner list, announced Blazblue for it, and released an Othello game at launch.

Isn't there a BlazBlue game for Switch that's been known of since the full reveal? Even though there's been no updates?

I dunno but since the presentation I'm sure that there are many more devs with a Switch dev kit.

Unlikely, not enough people own the system to generate interest or for it to be profitable.

Arcsys is not a really big studio and have multiple games in dev.
On top of that, Bamco is the publisher.

So I guess that like they're saying, if a port is coming, it'd be a bit later.
I'm fine with that tbh.

Bandai Namco is already porting Xenoverse 2 & ASW is getting BlazBlue on the Switch, so there'll be some interest already by then.

Or 600p as Nintendo fans don't really question resolution

You can ask all you want, if Xenoverse 2 on Switch sells poorly DBFZ on Switch will be a hard pass, I'm sure.

At least any chances of an early port.

Probably only enough time/money for the announced versions

If they see demand they might do it once the game is released

when they got time and money coming in from sales

That's what I'm worried about. I was gonna get Xenoverse 2 on the Switch, but DBFZ killed any interest I had in Xenoverse 2.

You forgot the biggest launch exclusive from ASW for Switch.

It did well in Japan.

If it isn't a technical reason then it's probably going to be 720p like XV2. Which is fine, I'd buy it.

Aww yiss, I've been resisting port begging for this game since announcement.

Honestly this should be a no-brainer, DB games sell great on portables and Switch shouldn't be an exception. I will expect it as a 6 months late release, tho.

Yeah, that'd be kind of silly, especially since FighterZ looks so much better and is more relevant than Xenoverse 2. Nothing against it but FighterZ is what I'm looking to get. I guess if they never end up making it for the Switch, I'll just get it for the PS4 but, man, would it be nice to have it on my most convenient system
