Motion-controlled Kamehamehas are kinda my thing.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is coming to Nintendo Switch in less than a month, and Bandai Namco has shown a bit more of what it has to offer with a new trailer. While the game is almost a year old at this point, the Switch version will have some exclusive features that make it worth checking out.
In the trailer, we can see some of the Joy-Con specific controls. You’ll be able to perform certain moves by using motion controls, and that’s great because it will put all that practice I did performing the Kamehameha in grade school to good use.
Bandai Namco is taking advantage of the Switch’s portability in this new version of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. There will be a six-player local multiplayer mode available, and you should be able to control your character using just one Joy-Con. I’m not sure how well that’s going to work in practice, but it’s nice to have the option regardless.
While the Nintendo Switch has faced some criticism for being a “port machine” — mostly from me because it is — it’s good to see that studios are at least taking the console’s unique features into account when transferring games over.
You can rock the dragon Nintendo-style soon. Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 will be available on September 22.
