Bandai Namco Entertainment has announced Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 now has sold over half a million (500,000) copies worldwide! This includes the physical retail versions and the downloadable version. Bandai Namco says there is a shortage of the physical versions and more copies are expected to be shipped in February.
The Switch version of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 was launched on September 7, 2017 in Japan and September 22, 2017 in the Americas and Europe so 500,000 copies sold is quite impressive! This is especially because the game was out for almost a year already on PS4, Xbox One, and PC with over 3.3 million copies shipped.
Despite the success of Xenoverse 2 and other Bandai Namco titles, no information has been announced for a much-desired Nintendo Switch version of Dragon Ball FighterZ. We’re pretty sure it’s under development and using Xenoverse 2’s example, it will probably be announced on Switch sometimes after it launches on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Afterall, at E3 in 2017, Dragon Ball FighterZ producer, Tomoko Hiroki, mentioned it is absolutely possible to bring Dragon Ball FighterZ to the Nintendo Switch. There was no difficulty for the developers to port over Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 to the Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo Switch has enough power to back Dragon Ball FighterZ, without any question. The missing piece to bring FighterZ to Switch was fan requests. And as we’ve seen via Twitter and by Xenoverse 2’s success, the fan request and demand for Dragon Ball on Switch is there!
