DBZ is my childhood, and a Switch would be my only way to play this.


Already tweeted about this like 5 times and posted in different spots. If this happened I would buy it in an instant, and practice this game for all it's worth.

This is so silly. After 3rd-parties been through every excuse in the book - as to why their games won't come - and Nintendo now has a hit console on their hands, the best many of these devs can do is the old "show interest first, and we'll port x/y/z game." Just port the fu**ing game already!

What the hell ever happened to the age-old concept of gamers being attracted to awesome looking/playing games? Apparently, Nintendo platform owners are exempt from that notion.

What happens in these cases are late ports when all the hype has died down, with no additional marketing, and the conclusion of;"You see, Nintendo gamers don't support our games!"

If it's not a hardware concern, then stuff like this is a no-brainer, especially on a damn hybrid console! Come on man.

As long as it isn't crossplay that's fine. Fighting games in general suffer from people not wiring in. The wi fi net code to this would probably be butt cheeks.

I refer you to #BuildingtheList and Bandai Namco's response to western Vita players asking for Cyber Sleuth. This isn't something that happens only to Nintendo gamers, sometimes you gotta ask for your niche shit to get ported rather than assuming that'll it come anyways.

Good answer.

I want to believe that they did not announce it for Switch now, due to Xenoverse 2, which will be released for Switch soon.

Bamco does have a hand in a lot of fighters on Switch (Pokken DX, Xenoverse 2, the almost certain Smash Switch) not counting DBFZ or even a belated T7 port (Tag 2 flopped on the Wii U but that's partially the system)

GGXrd runs at 720p/60fps on PS3. Worse hardware, worse engine.
No reason it'd be lower than that. It looks great mainly thanks to great art and neat tricks.

Have you not seen GGXrd on the PS3? Switch is stronger than that.

Didn't remember which game this was. In my mind I was thinking of something like xenoverse.

What do you mean by worse engine though? Maybe this isn't doing anything more than guilty gear on ps3, but system requirements usually go up with newer engines.

GGXrd is on UE3, DBF on UE4.
You can see from all the videos that they are using the same dev tricks, but this engine should allow them to both optimize it further all while using more tricks for the same amount of resources at worst.

Edit: Xenoverse 2 is at 720p on Switch too btw, and UE4 as well from what I remember.

Man, I would be so torn about a Switch port of this game. On one hand, it looks so clean and crisp at high res that I want to get it on PC. On the other, handheld mode makes every game better.

I'd probably just double dip if it's as good as it looks to be.

I could see this running at 720p on Switch. GGXrd run alright on PS3 on using UE3 at 720p so this game that uses basically all the same techniques and stuff should also be ok right?

Would be great to have this portable.

That's not necessarily true. UE4 is definitely a heavier engine than UE3 (except maybe the mobile rendering paths, not sure about those). Maybe this game is cutting back on the features that contribute to that. But just because it's newer doesn't mean it'll run faster on the same hardware.

My guess is that they don't see any overlap in fanbase, which is why people have to actually come out to prove they are interested and would buy such a port over PS4/XB1/PC

And have segmented PS4 servers? Its like usual XB1 ports in reverse

Its not about whether DBZ has been on previous handheld, but whether or not there is enough of a base for Switch outside of those buying on PS4/XB1/PC

That's literally what GGXrd is on PS3/Aracade, 720p/60, with lower resolution particle effects.

2 million units is not a "hit console" yet, the sales rate simply paints a positive forecast for the system if it continues in this manner. For third parties wary of Nintendo systems and the perceived limited sales potential that they represent to any games not published by Nintendo, it makes far more financial sense to wait until the Switch has a much larger install base before putting high cost projects on it. People need to stop acting like the Switch has outsold the PS4 or something. It's still very much in early days and nobody knows if it will actually sell to the mainstream market once it's done selling to the 8-10 million Nintendo fans who buy anything the company puts out automatically.
