DNF Duel developers have recently released a new official trailer for the game. This trailer showcases new moves for the Berserker, Fighter, Grappler, Inquisitor, and Ranger in the game. However, disappointingly the trailer didn't reveal any release date for the title. Other than the trailer, the developers have also revealed official social media accounts for the game. So far, Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube channels of the game has been set up in various languages. So whilst we might not have a release date, at least the project appears to be moving forward.

Arc System Works, Neople and Eighting were initially coy on saying which platforms they'll release the game on. We know the game is coming to PS4, PS5, and PC, since the beta was available on both platforms.

However, there's no word if we can also expect to see the game on Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X or Nintendo Switch. Only time will tell, so stay tuned for updates.
