Pre-ordering Dragon Ball FighterZ is the only way to get Dragon Ball Z Super Butoden on Switch

As reported some time ago, Dragon Ball FighterZ‘s Switch release would bring with it a port of the 1993 Super Famicom fighter Dragon Ball Z Super Butoden. Now, Bandai Namco has confirmed that this port will only be pre-order bonus for Dragon Ball FighterZ on Switch. That’s right, the Switch port of Dragon Ball Z Super Butoden will be available exclusively for those who pre-order Dragon Ball FighterZ for Nintendo’s portable console hybrid. In addition to this, Bandai Namco has also confirmed that this is the only way to get the game — at least for now.

Bandai Namco is no stranger to pre-order bonuses like this. However, while previous efforts have eventually received a standalone release, it seems that they have no plans to do so for Dragon Ball Z Super Butoden. In addition to access to Dragon Ball Z Super Butoden, pre-orders will also come with early access to the Super Saiyan Blue versions of Goku and Vegeta.

Dragon Ball FighterZ for Switch launches on September 28.
