[DFO] [XBOX] Nexon Announces Dungeon Fighter Online for Xbox 360
Nexon is finally entering the console market later this year as they partner with Microsoft to bring the extremely popular action brawler Dungeon Fighter Online to Xbox 360. The Nexon America leadership has expressed their interest in entering the console market through interviews several times in the past. They said that they had not yet developed games for consoles because at present there are no ways for Nexon to continue their usual free-to-play with optional microtransaction business model on consoles. Whether Nexon has found a way around this issue or if future players will have to do the usual and actually buy the boxed version of the game is unclear.
Dungeon Fighter Online is developed by Neople, an internal development studio of Nexon Corp. Launched in Korea in August 2005 and North America in June 2010, Dungeon Fighter Online has over 200 million players worldwide and has set a world record of 2.2 million concurrent users across Asia. The game features an old school arcade-style graphics style with fast paced beat ’em up action combat.
