The game has been going for two years with numerous releases but the company said the “product offerings didn’t meet the expectations of the broader fan base to engage further with the brand” despite the community’s continued growth.
The game was an interesting one taking advantage of some of the unique characters and “gimmicks” created by the toy line and animated shows. While it had a dedicated following it never seemed to break through at the conventions we saw its presence at. Locally for us, the game has had little to no presence at game shops.
The trading card game saw ten retailer releases in total, five booster sets and five starter/deck sets plus convention exclusives.
