Following the teaser trailer, in early May, Nexon, together with Neople, Arc System Works (Guilty Gear Strive), and Eighting, confirmed the appearance of a story mode in their anime fighting game DNF Duel.
As it became known, the DNF Duel story mode includes three components: a story with dialogues and illustrations, a gallery with images, sounds, and intros, as well as a glossary with information about the game world.
The new DNF Duel trailer lasts about 45 seconds and shows all three components of the story mode revealed on the occasion of the announcement. The video description also informs about another piece of the news shortly.
Recall that DNF Duel is an offshoot of the shareware role-playing action game Dungeon Fighter Online, from which both the entourage and archetypes of fighters migrated to the new game.
