Dragon Ball Z Bucchigiri Match (lost web-based card game based on anime series; 2018)
Dragon Ball Z Bucchigiri Match was a browser based card game based on the titular anime series launched in Japan on May 2018, and shut down on March 2020. Relying on the "gacha" style of mobile game monetization, the game was reportedly closed due to failure to make enough money, likely due to the game being browser only or because of the developer being unable to go global. Thanks to the strength of the Dragon Ball mobile game community, the game was able to pick up notoriety and a decent cult following, spawning its own subreddit and devoted players willing to translate and play the game publicly.
The game has countless gameplay videos, guides, and full translation guides for it, yet the service has shut down, making it impossible to play the game. Despite its devout following, there have currently been no attempts to bring back the servers.
