Nexon has announced that its 2D side-scrolling action MMO, Dungeon Fighter Online, will go live in North America on 9 June 2010. The game is insanely popular in the east already, it’s known to have at least 200 million players, and now Nexon hopes it’ll take off in the west too. What’s more, following Nexon America’s usual policy, DFO will be free to download and play: “Few games offer as much as Dungeon Fighter Online for so little,” said Min Kim, vice president of marketing for Nexon America. “Gamers will feel nostalgic with Dungeon Fighter’s retro art style and arcade style action. Hardcore RPG fans will immediately sense the deep and structured character advancement opportunities and be surprised by the quantity of items in the game. And PVP players will be floored at the diversity of competition made possible through the unique character builds. Each element could make up a great game on its own – but Dungeon Fighter Online offers all three in one experience for free.” The game offers dungeons for single players or groups of up to three people, and PvP competition. With the official launch, anyone who played on the beta will be able to keep their characters. Both existing and new players will be able to create a Female Gunner, the game’s newest character class, which joins the Fighter, Gunner, Mage, Priest and Slayer which are all currently available.
