DNF Duel is set for global release on the 28th of June, 2022 – available through Steam and PlayStation Store. It’s not certain what time the game will launch at the time of writing this, however, it will likely become available from midnight.

The latest action-packed fighting game has been loosely based on the hugely popular Dungeon & Fighter franchise, featuring many of the game’s original characters. DNF Duel has been co-developed by Arc Systems Works, Neople, and Eighting – reimaging DFO with ASW’s famous 2.5D style – made popular by fan-favourite titles such as Guilty Gear and Blazblue.

The latest combat-based title will not be a free-to-play game, with pre orders already available over at Steam and PlayStation Store.

DNF Duel release date

The development team behind DNF Duel has confirmed a worldwide release date of June 28th, 2022. It will be available on PC (through Steam), PlayStation 4, and next-gen PlayStation 5 consoles.

At the time of writing this, there are no signs to suggest that the game will be available on other platforms – albeit not confirmed.
