Seoul-based, Korean free-to-play game maker Nexon is known for games both cutesy (MapleStory) and cutthroat (Vindictus). But one thing the studio has never been known for is console gaming. That's until now, of course, as Nexon has announced Dungeon Fighter Live: Fall of Hendon Myre for Xbox 360, set to launch on Xbox Live Arcade later this year.

Fall of Hendon Myre is in development at Neople, a Korean subsidiary of Nexon, and will be published by Microsoft Studios. In this version of Nexon's free-to-play MMO (massively multiplayer online game) boasting 300 million registered players, you will fight goblins, demons, witches and more with friends online as either the Slayer, the Fighter or the Gunner in 720p video.

For those familiar with the original PC MMO, Dungeon Fighter's retro aesthetic and play hooks look largely unchanged. Much of the game's supporting characters will return, but in much sharper visuals and a much more appealing interface. If the record for most players logged into Dungeon Fighter Online at once is 2.6 million in China, according to Nexon, you have to wonder why the company doesn't just bring the whole enchilada to Xbox Live. Beggars can't be choosers?
