    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.

    One of the best fighting games arrives on Switch. The only problem was the server, with only a few players populating the online modes.

    A masterful port, worthy of one of the best fighting games around, and able to surpass our expectations. Our only criticism? having the season one characters for free would have been a great choice on Namco and Arc System's side.

    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 is one of those rare brawler’s where the simplicity doesn’t get in the way of depth. There’s a lot of possible mind games to play out with plenty of drama and upsets to keep the action incredibly addictive. Kakarot and the gang may be late to the Nintendo Switch party, but the wait was well worth it in the end.

    Dragon Ball FighterZ remains a winner on Nintendo Switch. The game plays fantastically and is fun for both the fighting novice learning the ins and outs and the expert. From casual options that you play with a Joy-Con to online ranked modes that run without too much lag, this title has everything you want out of a fighting game. 24 iconic characters bring a fun variety of moves to the table that thrilled me every time I played.

    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.

    En toute franchise, le jeu est une dinguerie. Quel magnifique portage, Bandai a fait du très bon boulot, et cela tourne en 1080@60fps ! EtEn toute franchise, le jeu est une dinguerie. Quel magnifique portage, Bandai a fait du très bon boulot, et cela tourne en 1080@60fps ! Et quel tour de force, le jeu est ultra simple à prendre en mains et à la fois très complexe... on peut aller très loin dans les combos. Alors oui on pourra lui reprocher 2 principales choses :

    - 1/ des textures de décors très appauvries mais si vous ne cherchez pas la petite bête, vous passerez à côté car l'essentiel du jeu se concentre sur la fluidité, le gameplay et théâtralisation des combats !

    - 2/ le roster... seulement 22 personnages (si je ne me trompe pas), ça fait un peu short en 2018. Idem pour les arènes (12 en comptant les doublons)

    Mis à part cela, vous pourrez vous délecter de quelques € si vous voulez rajouter les 8 persos rajoutés dans les DLC. Comptons sur Bandai pour nous en sortir d'autres, mais aux vues du travail réalisé sur les personnages, cela risque de prendre beaucoup de temps !

    Une fois qu'on s'est dit ça, le jeu est tout juste ouf. C'est LE jeu Dragon Ball que l'on a toujours rêvé. Votre écran explosera tant c'est vif et beau !

    Ce que j'ai aimé (+) :
    - La direction artistique, impossible de faire mieux... vous jouer dans le manga ! 200% fidèle à l'animé.
    - La simplicité de prise en main (combos, déplacements, attaques spéciales)
    - Le Fan Service (que Bandai sait exploiter à 100%)
    - La prouesse technique de la Switch
    - Le mode histoire, très sympa pour un jeu de baston... et un personnage exclusif crée par Akira Toriyama en personne spécifiquement pour le jeu !

    Ce que j'ai moins aimé (-) :
    - Un roster trop petit pour un jeu actuel... extensible toutefois par des DLC
    - Les DLC exploitant le Fan Service. Les musiques de l'animé aurait dûes être intégrées d'office.

    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.
