Nexon Announces DNF Duel Will Launch Globally This June

Nexon has announced they will be releasing DNF Duel globally this year as they now have a target release date for this June. Working with Arc System Works, they are bringing this all new fighting game based on Nexon's Dungeon&Fighter franchise, which as we speak has registered over 850 million players worldwide. For this game they are immediately launching in South Korea, Japan, Europe, North America and other territories to get a wide an audience as possible at the start. You'll be able to play the game on PC via Stteam and well as on PS4 and PS5 when the game drops on June 28th, 2022.

The franchise already has a pretty decent following, so we'd be surprised if the fighting game didn't become a success over the next several months worth of pre-registering and the eventual launch. Knowing the minds behind it, we'd be surprised if it didn't become an esports staple outside thr Arc World Tour.
