Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 will let you pull off the series’ most iconic move with motion controls, as the new trailer shows.

Dragon Ball games on Nintendo systems have let you do this in the past – most notably in the Budokai titles that made their way to the original Wii – but the improved tech in the Joy Cons should hopefully make the experience more palatable than it has been in past iterations.

In fact, it looks like everyone’s big ki attacks – Vegeta’s Final Flash, Goku’s Genki Dama/Spirit Bomb, Freeza’s, uh, big ol’ ball of death – can be performed with motions.

The game otherwise looks more or less the game as it did on PS4 and Xbox One, except now it’s portable, of course. Six people can play together if they’ve all got Switches and a copy of the game, which is nice (albeit, I’d imagine, a feature not many players will get to take advantage of). The trailer shows six friends working together to take down a Saiyan Oozaru warrior, which is pretty neat.

Xenoverse 2 for Switch will also feature the original Xenoverse 1 campaign as DLC, making this, potentially, the ultimate version of the game. It’s not necessarily the Dragon Ball game that people most want on the Switch, but it’s still a solid experience for fans of the anime.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 arrives on the Switch on October 25.
