While Switch owners will have to wait until September 28 to buy DRAGON BALL FighterZ, they won’t have to wait too long to play it as an Open Beta will get underway next week and it can be downloaded today, although you will need 3.1GB of free space for it. Today’s announcement can be seen here:
Calling All Nintendo Switch Owners… The DRAGON BALL FighterZ Open Beta is Set to Arrive on August 9th for the Americas
The power of all seven Dragon Balls will soon be in the hands of Nintendo Switch owners. But before we unleash the full power of DRAGON BALL FighterZ upon Nintendo Switch fans, we’re going to give everyone a taste of what’s to come with an Open Beta for players to enjoy. Here are the pertinent details for how we’re rolling-out this Open Beta for one of the most explosive and ground-breaking fighting games in recent memory.
- August 3rd: Release the Open Beta on the eShop for pre-load only (players will be able to begin downloading the Open Beta client on this day).
- August 9th (9:00pm PDT): Official release of the Open Beta on the Nintendo eShop and start of the Open Beta session (all players can now launch the game and have access to the online game servers).
- August 11th (11:59pm PDT): The Open Beta period ends.
Players will be able to choose amongst 23 of their favorite DRAGON BALL FighterZ characters for this Open Beta and take them into battle in Arena Match, Ring Match, and Ring Party Match modes. Or they can spend some time in Practice Battle Tutorial mode to get some training in before taking on real life opponents.
As well as the Americas, the Open Beta has also been confirmed for Japan and Europe, so your chance to play it, is almost upon us!
Don't wait until September 28th to play DRAGON BALL FIGHTERZ for Nintendo Switch! Play the open beta from August 10th at 6:00 (Central European Summer time) with 23 base characters available.
