2022 is the year of fighting games!
If you are a long-time fan of fighting games then you might be well versed with Dungeon Fighter Online. Today we talk about the latest title that Neople and Arc System Works are currently working on and it involves your favorite characters from Dungeon Fighter Online.
The game is being called DNF Duel and it was announced way back in 2020 at Nexon’s Dungeon and Fighter Universe Festival in December. However, all the parties related to the game including the developers went radio silent for the next year and left us wondering if the idea was scratched.
However, last year in December, they came back with hope and revealed new information about the game including new trailers for characters and open beta gameplay, all at once. Although there are not many details about the game available, here is everything we know so far:
What is DNF Duel About?
We got the first glimpse at the gameplay last year in December and it was confirmed that the game is going to be an online 1v1 fighter and that too in anime-style. So no, there won’t be any team-oriented or assistance-based gameplay in DNF Duel.
The mechanics of the game are similar to the last few projects of Arc System Works. The game will be released for multiple platforms including PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Microsoft Windows. As for now, the game will not be released for Xbox or Switch. DNF duel uses Unreal Engine 4 and is published by Nexon.
Not many modes of the game have been confirmed however these are some speculated modes that the game might feature:
- Training mode
- Online Mode – Ranked, Casual, or Arena
As for whether the game will be free to play or not, since Dungeon Fighter Online was a free-to-play game, it is expected that DNF duel would be FTP too.
DNF Duel Characters
The roster for DNF Duel will be an interesting one since along with introducing some new characters, the game will also be featuring the old iconic characters from Dungeon Fighter Online as well.
As of now, there has been no official announcement revealing just how many characters will be there in the game however, if we consider the characters featured in the beta gameplay will make it to the final game then the following are the characters that will be in the game:
- Dragon Knight
DNF Duel Release Date
Previously, the game was scheduled to release in the summer of 2022 and that remains true. Quite recently, ArcRevo made an announcement sealing the release date in stone. The game will now be officially released on 28th June 2022.
The release date also came along with a trailer that introduced the gameplay for revealed characters.
