Nexon said it will launch the mobile version of Dungeon & Fighter in South Korea on March 24.
The mobile game has been in the works for a long time and observers have high hopes as Dungeon & Fighter Online has had more than 850 million players and over $15 billion in revenue (revenue as of May 2020).
Tokyo-based Nexon said the announcement was made by three of the game developers, chief executive Myeongjin Yun, and heads of development Wonman Lee and Sungtae Ok.
The game features iconic 2D arcade-style side-scrolling action, immersive multiplayer role-playing game (RPG) elements, and a continuously evolving storyline. Mobile Dungeon & Fighter will deliver a fast, fun and action-packed gameplay experience, the company said.

Mobile Dungeon & Fighter is the first of three anticipated new virtual worlds among the many games Nexon will launch in 2022. KartRider: Drift and ARC Raiders are slated for worldwide release later this year. The latter is the first game from Nexon’s Embark Studios in Stockholm, Sweden.
Market researcher Niko Partners said Nexon will also continue to coordinate with its Chinese publishing house, Tencent Games, about the game’s release in China, although Nexon currently has no information about the timing of the release.
Niko said the title was originally scheduled for an August 2020 launch in mainland China, but was postponed at the last minute. While no official reason was given for the delay, Niko believed the title needed an updated license before it could be launched. As of March 2020, seven games developed by Korea have been assigned an ISBN. No Korean games were approved between March 2017 and February 2020.
