    Well, that sucks. At least all the rumors of a localization can die with the game.

    Not really surprised, after seeing how different it is to the media most people are familiar with (later anime and Z).

    It was really generic, though. I played it for about a week or two with the english patch.
    It took place way after the series, the earth is populated by half-saiyans, namekians, and buus.

    It's a bit old yeah, Toriyama helped design it and the game has been receiving updates to it on occasion.

    I thought it would be from 2012. That sucks for fans of this game.

    I've always wanted to play it, but it required a Korean ID to play it. Shucks.

    I'm a big DB fan, so that's a shame :(

    You might want to add this is only the Korean version being shut down. The other versions are still up and running.

    I got into Dragon Ball online for about a month mainly because I loved the fact that it was Dragon Ball + an MMO but after I realised it was a WoW clone it made me uninstall the game and never look back.

    I would have expected an official English translation before the game shut down.
    At least we don't have to scour the dark corners of the internet for Korean Social Security numbers.

    Wherever you want me, baby.
    The Taiwanese version; you don't need any "ssn". It's free. I've been playing it. From America, in America. Is the TW server shutting down too?

    How many people played this game, anyway?

    Would you say... over nine thousand?
