Hitman and Open Beta Test announced for Dungeon Fighter Duel

While Dungeon Fighter Duel started to more regularly release new trailers following a year of silence, there's still not a lot of information that the public knows about the game itself. That looks to be changing very soon, however.

Neople and Nexon dropped a brand new trailer tonight that reveals the Hitman class / character will also be joining the ranks of DNF Duel as well as dates for an Open Beta Test on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.

Hitman does manage to stand out amongst the roster revealed so far since he's shown to fight with a sword and gun at the same time in his brief glimpses at gameplay.

It appears he can also create after images or clones of himself, as the last move shown has three of the special class striking a different pose.

On top of Hitman, the new trailer teases four more fighters coming to DNF Duel via silhouettes, which puts the known roster size up to 10 for now.

The Open Beta Test is scheduled to begin this Friday, December 17, at 6 p.m. PST and run through Monday, December 20, at 6 a.m. PST.

This timing is curious for a few reasons; the first of which is that is the exact same period that SNK will be running The King of Fighters 15's second Open Beta Test, so they're going to be competing for the FGC's time on short notice.

Secondly, we still know next to nothing about this game outside of the characters shown thus far. They have yet to even show the user interface in any capacity, so it's pretty much impossible to know what systems are exactly at play in DNF Duel.

There's also no word on if the game will be using rollback netcode or not, which is pretty important seeing as there's a beta coming in less than a week, though we have a feeling they're going to be showing everyone a lot more about the fighting game spin-off in the next few days.

We know now at least that the collaboration between Neople, Arc System Works and Eighting is planned to release on at minimum the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 though it's also safe to assume at that point there will be a PC version too, considering that's where the original Dungeon Fighter Online can be found.
