DNF Duel very much resembles previous Arc System Works fighters, such as Granblue Fantasy Versus but takes on a much darker tone. Additionally, the previous trailers and open betas show that the game is much faster than GBFV, which might excite more hardcore fans.

Dungeon&Fighter is an MMO beat ’em up that launched in 2005 on PC in South Korea. The game made its way to the west in 2010, where it was shut down in 2013, and then received a global release in 2015 with English support. There’s also an anime based on the franchise.

DNF Duel is now available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam.
