Bandai Namco officially confirmed that the Nintendo Switch version of Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot’s Card Warriors Mode is being delayed.
Last year, Bandai Namco released Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, an all-new action RPG that retells the long-standing popular manga property. Players will relive the anime’s story, from the first fight with Raditz in the Saiyan Saga to the climactic ending against Kid Buu from the Buu Saga. This game is already available on most consoles available, with Dragon Ball Z: KakarotNintendo Switch port was released a few months ago with the DLC Episode “A New Power Awakens”.
However, even though Dragon Ball Z: KakarotConverted version of getting some new content, there is one feature that is noticeably missing from the release. Fans noticed that Dragon Ball Card Warriors, a turn-based card game mode, completely absent from the Switch version. This mode is a fast paced card game where players need to reduce the HP of their opposing team leader to 0. It also has several different online multiplayer modes such as Mode regular, Ranked Match and even League Match mode.
The mode became available on other platforms via a free update last year, where Bandai Namco promised it would arrive in late fall. This obviously didn’t happen, as Bandai Namco confirmed in a Twitter post that Dragon Ball Card Warriors Conversion update has been delayed. The post did not state a specific reason, only noting that the delay was due to a change in development schedule.
The post then apologizes to the fans who have been waiting for this YuGiOh-inspired Dragon ball regime will be released on Switch, note that the team is currently working diligently to get the mode working on the popular hybrid console. Unfortunately, Bandai Namco didn’t provide a specific date or release window when the mode will come to the Nintendo Switch, adding to the disappointment.
This news will likely make Switch owners of Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot annoying, as people who have managed to play this mode on other consoles have reported that it is a pleasant experience. Other fans may be equally annoyed that a fun mini-game like this is tied to a full-price game, instead of it being a mobile standalone game like Hearthstone or Elder Scrolls: Legends. Also there isn’t any post-launch support for Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot left, as the third and final DLC story centered on Future Trunks was released earlier this year, despite much critical acclaim. Hopefully fans will get news of a new release window soon.
Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot Currently available for PC, PS4, Switch and Xbox One.
From Dragon Ball to Nintendo staples, Bandai Namco has published quite a few great games. According to Metacritic, these are the best.
