Thingsoft Is Developing An Unreal Engine-Powered Sequel To Dungeon Fighter Online
Project Knock is the codename for an upcoming sequel to Dungeon Fighter Online. The game is presumably still early in development, so it's largely been kept under wraps up until now, but MMOCulture has uncovered several job listings, posted in February, that reveal a rather surprising fact. You see, Dungeon Fighter Online developer Neople isn't the company developing the sequel. Instead, Peria Chronicles developer Thingsoft is developing it. Furthermore, the sequel will be powered by the Unreal Engine.
Peria Chronicles has been in development for quite some time now, so this is a rather unusual turn of events. That being said, I have no doubt that we can at least expect that a stellar art style will be utilized in Project Knock.
Further information was revealed by ThisIsGame, which stated in an article published yesterday that Project Knock will be a 3D game that "will demonstrate 3D dungeon design that utilizes the 3D effect and transcends the limitation of lateral scrolling."
A short teaser video was released at G-Star 2016 alongside a trailer for Kart Rider Remaster, at which time the game was known as "Project D." You can find the relevant trailer embedded below.
