KEY POINTS

  • "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot" was released in 2020
  • The game is available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One
  • "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot" could release on a new gaming platform

Video game company Bandai Namco might announce the release of "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot" on Nintendo Switch very soon if a recent leak is anything to go by. 

Twitter profile LeakyPandy, which is known to leak gaming industry news, claimed a Bandai Namco update about the semi open-world role-playing game (RPG), based on the hit manga series, will be soon. 

The group also claimed the announcements for "Tales of Destiny," "Tales of Arise," "Dark Souls" and "Gundam Breaker" would also be coming. Unfortunately, the group had nothing to offer about "Elden Ring," another game which would be published by Bandai Namco. 

This is not the first time the industry has heard about the game releasing on Nintendo Switch. "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot" was rumored to release on Switch during its official release. A month ago, Bandai Namco's Latin America Instagram account drew a lot of attention from the Switch community when it showed the hybrid console's logo at the end of the game's trailer for "Trunks: The Warrior of Hope."

Surprisingly, it was immediately pulled out with the game publisher claiming it was just a mistake. The same trailer also revealed a logo for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.

"Dragon Ball Fighter" and "Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2" also show at the end of their respective trailers the logo of Microsoft's next-generation gaming consoles, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. Fans believe this could be a sign the game publisher is not only preparing to port the games on Switch, but also gearing up for a current-generation upgrade on these consoles. 

Over the past years, Bandai Namco has offered a lot of support for the Nintendo Switch and "Dragon Ball FighterZ." So far, it is still one of the best third-party ports available. Interestingly, both "FighterZ" and "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot" happen to run on Unreal Engine 4.

Despite these leaks, Bandai Namco has not said anything about the release of "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot" on the Nintendo Switch. In the absence of official announcement, fans should temper their expectations and take this latest leak with a pinch of salt. 

The semi open-world RPG is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
