Siliconera has reported that Microsoft will soon be launching the first Xbox Live Arcade game that will feature micro-transaction based gameplay. The title in question concerns Dungeon Fighter Online, an online beat-’em-up that was released in Asian territories around 2006, but wasn’t launched in North America until last year.¬†

Though the game will be free to download on the platform, players can unlock items in the game by means of microtransactions. Neither Microsoft or publisher Nexon have announced a specific release date for the title, Dungeon Fighter Online will be the first console-based game that fully embraces the ‘freemium’ business model. The title will be exclusively available on the Xbox 360, and will feature English, Korean, Chinese,¬†French, Spanish, Italian, German, and Japanese language options.
