I hope this will convince Bandai Namco to port FighterZ to the Switch

Great news. Dragon Ball games tend to do well on Nintendo handhelds, and this was not an exception. I want to see Fighter Z coming to the Switch as well. NamcoBandai are very close with Nintendo nowadays, so I don't see their main titles missing the platform.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Bamco was probably already convinced to put DBFZ on the Switch last year when Xenoverse 2 sold well in its first two months and the only way it doesn't get put on the Switch is if they can't find a way to put it on the Switch. The more plausible scenario is that they're just delaying the announcement for as long as possible to maximize double dipping. Square Enix is probably doing the same thing with Dragon Quest XI.

*Insert generic "It's not a handheld, it's a hybrid!" argument here* :P

Seriously though, seeing how this has done well, it'd be great to see FighterZ come to the Switch, perfect fit for it too! :o 



Good stuff. Get that DBFZ out by sept

So... are we getting a thread like this for every multiplat that will sell 1k more at retail in Japan on the Switch. Because we are going to get a whole lot more of these. Is anyone genuinly surprised by this? Does anyone consider this newsworthy?



Vote the Mayor for Mayor!

Not surprising.

Considering many people (including developers and publishers) still believe Nintendo fans don't buy third party games... yes..

The only way to counter an echo chamber is to keep repeating yourself. 



Can I do a thread every time a muliplat sold more on ps4? Anyways fighting games aren't really great playing on the go because of the lack of d pad.
