Nexon Releases First Update for ‘Dungeon Fighter LIVE: Fall of Hendon Myre’ on Xbox LIVE Arcade

LOS ANGELES – Nexon Co., Ltd., (3659.TO) ("Nexon"), a worldwide leader in free-to-play online games, today announced that the first update for its first Xbox LIVE Arcade title, “Dungeon Fighter LIVE: Fall of Hendon Myre” is now available.

“Dungeon Fighter LIVE: Fall of Hendon Myre,” developed by Neople and Softmax, and published by Microsoft Studios, is an Xbox LIVE Arcade title with remarkable content and outstanding game features based off of Nexon’s global smash hit PC game, “Dungeon&Fighter.”  “Dungeon Fighter LIVE: Fall of Hendon Myre,” which launched in July 2012, is currently available in eight different languages in the Xbox Marketplace.

The distinctive features of the content update to “Dungeon Fighter LIVE: Fall of Hendon Myre” include additional difficulties for the final dungeon that enhance the playing experience, and improved game functions that allow the camera view point to focus on the player’s character during online multi-play.

The three new difficulties - Expert, Master, and King’s Road – have been added to the Floating Gardens dungeon, the most challenging dungeon in the game available to only the highest level players.  These difficulties further test players’ abilities and skills and amplify the challenges they face during gameplay, while faster attack speeds improve performance during battles.

The camera viewpoint has also been changed to a user-centered angle, allowing users to move freely and shift their character’s position without affecting other party members during online multi-play.  Players who move off the screen will be directed back to the action by an arrow indicating the location of the player. In addition, the control functions and stability have been improved to provide players with additional choices, such as pressing “X” while moving or during an attack to initiate the attack skill before the function to pick an item up is activated.

The title update to “Dungeon Fighter LIVE: Fall of Hendon Myre” will be available through Xbox LIVE Arcade. For more information on “Dungeon Fighter LIVE: Fall of Hendon Myre” and the recent content update, visit: http://playxbla.com
