BANDAI NAMCO Publisher Announcement

by Counterplay Games  /  July 6, 2017

We will be performing maintenance for Duelyst on July 11th between 11 am through 4 pm (PDT / GMT-7)

Duelyst is joining the BANDAI NAMCO family!

Counterplay Games and BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America are pleased to announce their new publishing partnership for Duelyst! While both teams are excited to share this big news with everyone, we thought our fans may have some questions: we’re here to help.

Why is Counterplay partnering with BANDAI NAMCO?

Shared passion for Duelyst! Counterplay Games was self-sufficient but always on the lookout for opportunities to expand and grow Duelyst. After talking with the Bandai Namco team for a while, we at Counterplay realized they were first and foremost huge fans of Duelyst, playing almost daily! This shared passion for Duelyst was the perfect starting place for a new partnership. Counterplay and Bandai Namco aim to improve, grow and develop more fun, for everyone!

What does this mean for Duelyst?

This partnership actually frees up the Counterplay team to focus solely on development. Our developers can now focus their time and effort into creating more fun and engaging features for anyone, casual or hardcore players alike! BANDAI NAMCO will take on publishing responsibilities including marketing and customer service. This means we’ll be able to introduce more and more people to the game we all love!

Are there any changes coming?

If you’re afraid of radical changes in our current design and philosophy, fear not! Although Counterplay Games and BANDAI NAMCO are working together on Duelyst, the talent at CPG will still be steering game design: no drastic changes here!

As part of the partner integration, we’ll be asking all players to merge their Duelyst account with a BNEA account. Merging over accounts allows BANDAI NAMCO to start managing the Duelyst servers to provide improved stability. Another added bonus is player access to their global support network: you’ll be able to receive professional and quality service in your time of need.

Celebration Event

To Celebrate this event, we’ll be offering a login bonus to all players who log into Duelyst from July 11th, 2017 through August 1st, 2017. The first time you log in during this event you will receive 3 Core Set orbs and a special BANDAI NAMCO Healing Mystic skin!

In order for this event to go live, we will be performing maintenance for Duelyst on July 11th between 11 am through 6 pm PT
