Dragon Ball FighterZ Testing New Game Modes In Open Beta For Nintendo Switch
Fresh from showing off the game’s incoming DLC, Dragon Ball FighterZ is now preparing for a much-awaited release on the Nintendo Switch. The approaching port is one that is poised to complete the fighting title’s wide platform availability, and it seems like Bandai Namco are marking this feat with the introduction of a few new game modes.
FighterZ next release will increase support for new local multiplayer features, debuting both 2v2 and 1v1 matches in addition to a 6-player Party Match mode. To get these modes of play ready for the Switch, an open beta has been scheduled to take place sometime in August next month. So far, only Nintendo will have access to the test, but there’s nothing to suggest other platforms wouldn’t get this functionality in an update further down the line.
