The Nintendo Switch gets its first gameplay trailer for Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2

Chris Hallam Updated on by

Bandai Namco has released the first Switch-focused trailer for Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. The trailer shows off some of the features that’ll come to the Switch game in September, such as the docked TV Mode, Handheld Mode, Tabletop Mode and even the local co-op multiplayer.

The trailer gives us our first look at how the motion controls work, letting you wave your Joy-Cons around to do all the special moves from the iconic series. It’s not all attack though, you can use the motion controls to defend and parry, and even to control your floating disc about. You won’t look possessed using motion controls in public, I promise.

Everything from the PS4 and Xbox One versions makes it into the Switch port: the quest filled hub, the story mode and all the Dragon Ball heroes that you can think of. The trailer is in Japanese, so it features lots of enthusiastic narration, as every trailer should. But language barriers aside, it’s easy to follow and gives you a clear indication of what to expect. The trailer does make reference to the Japanese release date though, so you’d do best to ignore that.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 came out last year on the PS4, PC and Xbox One. It will be coming to the Nintendo Switch on September 22, in both North America and Europe.
