Z/X Code OverBoost Smartphone Game Ends Service on July 20
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website for the Z/X Code OverBoost smartphone game announced on Wednesday that the game will end service on July 20.
The game is the first smartphone game in the Z/X franchise, and it launched in Japan last October.
The original Z/X Zillions of enemy X trading card game advertises itself as the "first free" trading card game system because card shops and events hold meets that offer free decks. (Z/X is pronounced "zex.") Players can even download and print cards with PDF files posted online.
The trading card game inspired a television anime in 2014. Crunchyroll streamed the first anime as it aired in Japan. The card game also inspired a PlayStation 3 game, a PC browser game, and two manga series in Shueisha's V Jump magazine.
Tatsuhiko Urahata is working alongside artist Takuya Fujima (Weiß Survive, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha ViVid) on the Z/X Code reunion manga, which launched in V Jump in September 2017. The manga went on an indefinite hiatus in June 2018 due to the sudden illness of one of the authors. The manga inspired a television anime that premiered last October. Sentai Filmworks licensed the series and streamed it on HIDIVE.
