‘Dungeon Fighter Online’ (known as ‘Dungeon & Fighter’ in Asia) is one of the most popular MORPGs in the world with more than 200 million registered users worldwide, and it’s now coming to Xbox LIVE later this year.
Thanks to a publishing agreement between both Nexon and Microsoft Game Studios, this MORPG will now be available to Xbox players. The game has already set a new record for concurrent players in Asia after it registered more than 2.2 million concurrent users in the combined China, Japan and Korean territories after its release. The launch on this newest platform will only prove to increase its success as it becomes available to more players.
The Xbox LIVE Arcade version of the game will be jointly developed by Nexon and Softmax. Softmax is the developer of several console games such as ‘The War of Genesis’ and ‘Magna Carta.’ Neople, the developer of ‘Dungeon Fighter Online’ (PC) and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Nexon, will be in charge of directing the project. The game will be published by Microsoft Game Studios in all territories.
Nexon will localize the game into English and Chinese, while Microsoft Game Studios will localize the game into Japanese, Spanish, German, Italian and French. Leveraging the strengths of each company in development, marketing, and translation will help ensure the highest quality game experience for players worldwide.
This move marks the first time that Nexon is releasing a game on a console system, and is part of Nexon’s long-term plan to expand onto new platforms in order to introduce new audiences to its game franchises.
“This agreement is a significant step forward for Nexon,” said Min Suh, Nexon’s chief executive officer. “For some time we have been seeking opportunities to expand beyond online PC gaming and move into new platforms like Xbox LIVE Arcade. With the help of Microsoft Game Studios’ deep development and localization experience, we anticipate that Dungeon Fighter Online will bring enjoyment to entirely new audiences on Xbox LIVE Arcade.”
Developed by Neople, Dungeon Fighter Online is a 2D MORPG with a mixture of action and RPG elements. It launched in Korea in August of 2005 and launched in North America in the summer of 2010.
