A shirtless, phenomenally torn man with spiky hair and a sword the size of a refrigerator with a freezer, and a woman pulling out a bazooka for one of her weakest attacks? Yes, this is another anime-styled beat ’em up to throw yourself on the mound. That said, you will want to hang on to this one. The brilliant extravagances in the character design and the attack animations are here to decorate, not distract.

Although based on the MMO Dungeon Fighter Online, you do not need to know anything about it (and not just because BlazBlue and Guilty Gear have already taught Arc System Works fans to expect largely impenetrable storytelling). What you do need to know is that DNF Duel is surprising in some very positive ways … starting with how it handles character damage.

There are two types of injuries; red injuries and white injuries. Red works as you expect, ie it is part of the health bar that is gone immediately and permanently. White, on the other hand, will slowly regenerate if you can let it. Most attacks result in some white damage, and some red.
