2022 is the year of fighting games!
If you’ve been a long-time fan of fighting games, you might be familiar with Dungeon Fighter Online. Today we’re talking about the latest title that Neople and Arc System Works are currently working on that involves your favorite Dungeon Fighter Online characters.
The game is called DNF Duel and it was announced in 2020 at Nexon’s Dungeon and Fighter Universe Festival in December. However, all parties related to the game, including the developers, went silent for the following year and left us wondering if the idea had been scratched.
However, last year in December, they hopefully returned and revealed new information about the game, including new character trailers and open beta gameplay, all at once. While there aren’t many game details available, here’s everything we know so far:
What is DNF Duel about?
We got a first look at the gameplay last year in December and it was confirmed that the game will be a 1v1 online fighter and that too in an anime style. So no, there will be no team-oriented or assist-based gameplay in DNF Duel.
The game mechanics are similar to the latest Arc System Works projects. The game will be released on multiple platforms including PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Microsoft Windows. For now, the game will not be released on Xbox or Switch. DNF duel uses Unreal Engine 4 and is published by Nexon.
Not many game modes have been confirmed, but here are some rumored modes the game might feature:
- training mode
- Online mode – ranked, casual or arena
As for whether the game will be free or not, since Dungeon Fighter Online was a free game, it is expected that the DNF duel will also be FTP.
DNF Duel Characters
The DNF Duel roster will be interesting because apart from introducing new characters, the game will also feature the old iconic Dungeon Fighter Online characters.
As of now, there has been no official announcement revealing how many characters will be in the game. However, if we consider that the characters featured in the beta gameplay will make it to the final game, here are the characters that will be in the game:
- dragon knight
DNF Duel Release Date
Previously, the game was supposed to release in the summer of 2022 and that remains true. Just recently, ArcRevo made an announcement sealing the release date in stone. The game will be officially released on the 28thand June 2022.
The release date also comes with a trailer that showcases the gameplay of the revealed characters.
