As of now, the only information about this game is its trailer that was released last December 2020. The trailer featured gameplay of a handful of characters from the Dungeon Fighter Online game. The characters showcased a few combos of what they can do in the game.

Lastly, the trailer ended with the game's title with the three developers working on this title. As already known, Arc System Works is already known for making Guilty Gear and Blazblue while also worked to develop fighting games for other companies such as Persona 4 Arena, and Dragonball FighterZ.

Lastly, the Eighting Co. Ltd company sounds like an unfamiliar developer for many players. However, this company has worked to make some of the Bloody Roar games, developed Battle Stadium D.O.N for Bandai Namco, made Tatsunoko Vs Capcom for Capcom and co-developed both versions of Marvel Vs Capcom 3 for Capcom.

The developers working on this game are definitely loaded with experience and capable of making a slamdunk of a fighting game.
