Dragon Ball Card Warriors mode in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot goes offline in 2023

Bandai Namco announced back in October that Dragon Ball Card Warriors, the deck-building, card battle mode included in 2020’s Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will be shut down at some point in 2023. A more exact timeframe will be announced after the new year but the plan is to allow players to transfer some of their progress in Card Warriors to an upcoming offline version.

The online service of “Dragon Ball Card Warriors” will be terminated in 2023. After the service ends, we plan to release an offline version of “Dragon Ball Card Warriors” where players can play against the CPU offline.  

Existing profiles and cards will be able to continue to be used in the new CPU battle mode by using the data transfer function that will be added in a future update. In addition, some items and features currently available in the online service, such as Platinum Coins, will not be available in the offline version.

The specific end date of the online service and detailed transfer procedures will be announced on the official website in the future.

The post contains specific details about what items can and can’t be transferred to the upcoming offline mode. It also specifies that the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S versions of Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will support only the offline mode of Card Warriors and that it will be added in a free update after the game’s launch in January of 2023.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot and the Card Warriors mode are available right now on Steam, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Thanks to Skyevlyn for pointing out the news, I’ve added a temporary mid-January date to the Watch List calendar.
