When it comes down to Dragonball Z titles from the 90’s the Butouden series stands out to many people. For whatever reason none of the Super Butouden games for the SNES were never released in America back in the 90’s which many people would find strange. The Dragonball Z anime had started to become popular during the 90’s and it seems like would have been a perfect time to release DBZ: Super Butouden 3 for the SNES in America.
However, during the early 90’s the Dragonball Z series was not quite as popular as it would eventually become during the late 90’s and early 00’s when it was aired on Toonami. In fact most of the story in Super Butouden 3 takes place after the Cell Saga in Dragonball Z and during the start of the Buu Saga which started to air in America around the early 00’s. If anything that may be one of the many reasons why DBZ: Super Butouden 3 was never released in America. along Also, 2D fighting games from the DBZ series was nowhere never as popular as the likes of Mortal Kombat or the Street Fighter II series in America.
