Since Bandai Namco announced way back in June that Dragon Ball FighterZ will arrive on the Nintendo Switch in September, it’s been a waiting game for the cult classic anime fans. Seem like they’ll won’t have to wait that long to get a bit of the action, the publisher just revealed that an open beta will be available to Switch players this August. Other details about the beta test have not been released, so we don’t know what fighters or modes to expect.
The publisher noted that the Switch version of Dragon Ball FighterZ will come with a new local multiplayer feature. Along with the typical battle modes, the Switch version will come with a 2 vs 2, 1 vs 1 and an additional offline 6-player Party Match mode
