    Dragon Ball FighterZ is fantastically animated and one of the more interesting fighting games that I've ever come across. It's an epic game to play by yourself or head-to-head with some friends.

    A surprising example of the technical capabilities of the Switch. It's almost identical to the previous versions, which means lots of great fighting moments, saiyan style.

    FighterZ is complex and distinct enough to be enjoyed by fighting game competitors, but there's no question that it's been designed to tap into the hearts of Dragon Ball's most dedicated fans, and no doubt those same qualities will win people over who've never given the series a chance.

    Dragon Ball FighterZ on the Switch is, simply put, the best fighting game we've seen on the system yet. Arc System Works went the extra mile in capturing the essence of the source material and distilled it into an incredible brawler that has lost nothing in the transition to Nintendo's hybrid console. The stunning visuals, intense action and easy-to-master controls make FighterZ a game all fans of the genre should have in their library. If you only play this kind of game casually, it remains a must-own.

    Dragon Ball FighterZ is both an excellent fighter and an amazing Dragon Ball game. It's easy to pick up, but hard to master. The port to Nintendo Switch has been highly successful and it's great that anyone can now play this game on the go.

    In general, the Nintendo Switch version of Dragon Ball FighterZ comes very, very polished and offers everything that PS4 and Xbox One players could enjoy before. It is a pity that we had to wait 8 months to try it and we missed that it had arrived with some exclusive extras to alleviate this delay.

    If you’re a Switch owner, you probably put a pretty hefty premium on portability. And honestly, the game’s performance is otherwise exemplary. For me, the load times and the game’s performance make this a good experience in short doses. If you want epic, fast-paced combat in a portable package, definitely give Dragon Ball FighterZ a chance.

Many abilities to learn and master with each character. Reminds be of Final Bout and Ultimate Battle 22 two decades ago for the PS1. Artwork and graphics are also unique and designed from scratch, unlike many seemingly copy and paste Dragon Ball games, This game shines brightly and will be a challenge for me for years to come!

    ya lo tenia para PS4 pero la razón por la que hago este review es por que la calidad de este port es perfecta. corre de una manera hermosa elya lo tenia para PS4 pero la razón por la que hago este review es por que la calidad de este port es perfecta. corre de una manera hermosa el juego y siendo honesto no le veo mucha diferencia en cuanto a calidad con sus otras versiones. la ventaja de esta versión a las otras como siempre lo diré es la portabilidad de la consola. siempre he dicho que la switch es la consola perfecta para juegos de peleas por que puede llevartela y jugar con tus amigos en cualquier rato una reta de SF o en este caso Fighterz. el online he jugado muy poco pero en lo general si mi rival tiene buena conexión el juego corre muy bien. hasta el momento solo tuve una pelea llena de lag de las 10 que he jugado.
