This game is trying to create an explosion in the fighting games community

The first reveal trailer of Dungeon Fighter Duel was published around a year ago. It’s a short video that teases a fighting game based on the super-popular Action RPG Dungeon Fighter Online. Then the developers went to a period of silence — but you know, if Arc System Works is behind a fighting game, we totally can expect something extraordinary.

Around three weeks ago, the silence was broken. The stream of official trailers spread to the Internet and created rather cautious discussion. Dungeon Fighter Duel certainly looks cool, but at that point, we knew too little about it.

Still, quite soon, the developers revealed 10 characters, explained their movesets in detail, announced an open beta test, and confirmed rollback netcode. Somehow, the game becomes more and more interesting.

A great thing about all these reveals that gamers have a chance to try them out in practice. Dungeon Fighter Duel enters the beta testing period on PlayStation 4 and 5, which starts on December 18 and ends on December 20.

Also, it is good to know that DNF Duel online experience will be based on rollback netcode.

It was announced recently that two BlazBlue games get a rollback netcode update. That might really improve online matchmaking, and fans of other titles want that too (for example, for Dragon Ball FighterZ, also developed by Arc System Works). Their most recent product, Guilty Gear -Strive- already has this technology.
