‘Dungeon Fighter Online(DFO)’, is a South Korean game but it’s most commonly known there as ‘Dungeon and Fighter’. It is a multiplayer, violent “fight till the death”, role-playing game. It is developed for PCs by Neople, a south Korean equivalent of Nexon. But it was originally published by Hangame in 2005. It is the second-highest-grossing game as of 2018 with $1.2 Billion revenue. This game is also available on Steam.
Even though this game is not in trend much, it still has an active and vibrant community who stay loyal to it till this date, waiting for its new updates. DFO is similar to a 2D game such as ‘Golden Axe’ or ‘Double Dragon’. At the 2009 Game Developers conference in late March, North America revealed plans for an English version of the game. The name was changed from ‘Dungeon and Fighter’ to ‘Dungeon Fighter Online’ because apparently, the Americans found the original name weird.
The North American version got released on June 9, 2010, but for unknown reasons, got shut down on June 13, 2013.
Dungeon Fighter Online celebrated on May 25, 2011, for reaching 300 million downloads. After ‘League of Legends, this game topped the charts as the most infamous game ever.
Its spin-off games include ‘Project BBQ’ and ‘Dungeon Fighter Duel(DNF). This leads us to the topic at hand. This game has inspired the new DNF game developed by Arc System Works.
Dungeon Fighter Duel(DNF) was announced on December 26, 2020, and its new trailer got released recently. Its co-developed by Neople, Arc System Works, and Eighting, and published by Nexon. So it’s quite obvious that this game- is the next best deal.
Today, a new game trailer, DNF Duel, was released by Nexon based on the Dungeon fighter franchise or also more widely known as ‘Dungeon and Fighter’ in Korea. People who have been following the DFO world all too closely must probably know about the ‘Inquisitor. Well, for those who love the Inquisitor got a whole new treat coming. This trailer showcases the already available ‘Inquisitor in a brand new way. This trailer showcases her rather, daring and flashy action skills.
You can find that trailer below:
Since Arc System Works’ game fans already played this type of game before, they might find it a bit usual and quite ordinary. But this isn’t a surprise anymore seeing as Nexon hired a fighting game designer from Japan just to develop this game. The fans already had this feeling once before, with the game trailer featuring the ‘Berserker’.
We can certainly expect a western release, seeing as how Dungeon Fighter Online(DFO) is quite popular in Asia than in the west. If all you want is the actual review then DFO is one of the most played games in the world, so it may soon grow over to other genres and markets too. It’s only a matter of time before a game that popular is truly available all over the world. It also has many social media accounts and channels in English.
This game’s fans are increasing by every minute and it may set a new record.
