Hacking and Slashing Rarely Look Better Than They Do in This Dungeon Fighter LIVE Trailer

on January 18, 2012 6:30 PM

Dungeon Fighter is coming to Xbox LIVE Arcade. We’ve got the video to prove it. The trailer for the series’ latest title, subtitled Fall of Hendon Myre, was released earlier today and gives you a glimpse of some of the baddies you’ll fight in the beat em’ up’s latest release. We’re told the game will play much like the PC original with the biggest difference being the updated visuals, which will be available in up to 720p.

The original let you hook up with a few friends for some side-scrolling, 2D cooperative fisticuffs and its Xbox iteration looks to have the same mission. Dungeon Fighter was developed by Nexon but Microsoft Games Studios is at the helm this time around. Take a gander at some of the beasts you’ll take on in the trailer, embedded after the jump.

Three of the series’ eight character classes are on display in the video below — Slayer, Gunner and Fighter. Players level up their characters as they make it through dungeons and can upgrade abilities and jobs as they go. We don’t have word of a release date for Dungeon Fighter LIVE: Fall of Hendon Myre or an MSRP yet, but we’ll keep you posted as we get the info.
