Bandai Namco Entertainment announced on Thursday that it will release the Nintendo Switch version of Arc System Works‘ Dragon Ball FighterZ game in Japan on September 27. The game will launch the next day in the Americas and Europe.
The Switch version of the game was revealed at E3 last week, but without a specific release date.
Bandai Namco is offering a new pre-order incentive exclusive to the Switch version: a downloadable copy of Dragon Ball Z: Super Butoden, the Super Famicom fighting game that was released in Japan in 1993.
Bandai Namco says that Super Butoden for Switch will be the classic Japanese version of the game.
Pre-orders will also come with early access to SSGSS Goku and Vegeta in Dragon Ball FighterZ.

The game launched for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam in the Americas and Europe on January 26, and launched on February 1 in Japan for PS4 and Xbox One. The game has sold 2.5 million copies worldwide.
In the game’s story mode, as the mysterious Clone Army invades, the Super Warriors lose consciousness and their powers.
At the same time, the player protagonist becomes mind-linked to Goku. Goku and players must fight together to reveal the mystery behind the link and the Clone Army.
The story mode also has two other stories, in which the player protagonist becomes mind-linked to Android 18 and to Frieza. The characters Android 16 and new character Android 21 “hold the key to the story.”
The game will be featured at this year’s Evo fighting game tournament in July.
