In conjunction with today’s August 2018 issue of Shueisha’s V-Jump magazine, Bandai Namco has revealed a 27 September 2018 release date for the Nintendo Switch edition of Dragon Ball FighterZ in Japan. The game will cost ¥6,800 + tax.
First-press editions of the game are set to include several bonus items, including immediate unlocks of Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan versions of both Son Goku and Vegeta, as well as an as-of-yet-undetermined card for the Super Dragon Ball Heroes arcade game. Additionally, the 1993 Super Famicom game Dragon Ball Z: Super Butōden — the franchise’s first fighting game — will be included as a bonus download.
The game’s official website notes that the Dragon Ball Z: Super Butōden music — originally composed by Kenji Yamamoto — will be replaced with new music:
The [original] background music of “Dragon Ball Z: Super Butōden” has been replaced. Please take note beforehand.
Dragon Ball Z: Super Butōden 2 was previously included as a bonus download on the Nintendo 3DS alongside Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butōden in 2015. Though its soundtrack was kept in the 2013 J Legend Retsuden Nintendo 3DS compilation, the entire soundtrack for Super Butōden 2 was replaced in all territories for the Extreme Butoden bonus inclusion.
