For a little while now, we’ve known when Dragon Ball FighterZ would be hitting Switch in Japan. Now, we finally know when the game will be hitting Nintendo’s hybrid console in the West as well: Bandai Namco has announced that Dragon Ball FighterZ  will be releasing on Switch in North America and Europe on September 28. This means that players in the West will be able to purchase and play the three-on-three tag team Dragon Ball fighter just a day after Japan gets it.

Pre-orders for the game are already open. Those who do so will get some of the same bonuses coming to the Japanese version — namely early access to Super Saiyan Blue versions of Goku and Vegeta, and a download code for the Super Famicom classic Dragon Ball Z: Super Butoden.
