"This agreement is a significant step forward for Nexon," said Nexon CEO Min Suh in the announcement. "For some time we have been seeking opportunities to expand beyond online PC gaming and move into new platforms like Xbox Live Arcade. With the help of Microsoft Game Studios' deep development and localization experience, we anticipate that Dungeon Fighter Online will bring enjoyment to entirely new audiences on Xbox Live Arcade."

      So is this an MMO or a beat-em-up with magic?

        It's both. it's a multiplayer beat-em-up

        towns are where you will get the most of that MMO feel, though, since dungeons are instanced for you or your group alone.
