    The Switch version performs identically to the PS4 and Xbox One versions, running smooth as silk, sharp as ever and with no input lag when playing with Joy-Cons, the Pro Controller, in docked or in handheld mode. Surprisingly, online battles (no Nintendo Online subscription needed) work flawlessly, absent of even a hint of lag or stutter. And even at odd hours (yeah, I was playing at 4am, what of it?), I never had any issue finding an opponent to battle against. Dragon Ball FighterZ is a AAA port of a AAA game, and the Switch version is definitely the one to get.

    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 an incredible game, and this version is as good as the others. It’s a shame the Joy-Con is not great for this type of game, because other than that, being able to play FighterZ anywhere is like a dream come true.

    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.

    Incredible, silky smooth fighting action paired with some incredible visuals makes this easily one of the best looking games on Switch, and quite possibly the best looking fighting game to ever grace a handheld.

    This is the long sought-after bridge that links fans of the anime with hardcore virtual pugilists, and it deserves to serve as the template for all future Dragon Ball fighting games. [Issue #36 – November/December 2018, p. 88]

    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.

    I saw this as an upgrade from the xbox one version i originally had, because i loved the game, but didn't have time to commit to playing it, with the switch version obviously it can be played anywhere, even giving some decent battery life.

    Given the choice between all 3 console versions, i would always being saying this one just for playing constantly.

    La historia esta al nivel de ser convertida en anime: Todos los héroes y villanos se reúnen debido a unas ondas que les ha absorbido sus poderes, y son obligados a formar alianza con un espíritu para poder restablecer sus habilidades y combatir al enemigo, Androide Nª21. Todo contado desde tres perspectivas distintas que hacen ver cuan profunda es la narrativa y lo bien logrado del guión.
    El juego es suave y se juega genial, idealmente con un control convencional. Esta la posibilidad de jugar con un amigo con un Joy-Con cada uno pero es mejor si lo hacen con dos pares de éstos o un Pro Controller.
    Si te gusta Dragon Ball o los juegos de pelea, éste es uno de los mejores del catálogo de la Switch, se juega fluido y en general el juego esta hecho de forma correcta. Se lamenta el precio del Season Pass pero hay un buen elenco como para comenzar a conocer el juego.

En la parte final la dificultad aumenta bastante y se hace complicado el último combate. Lo dicho para pasar un buen rato está bien pero no esperen mucho de él. Expand
