The Duke is BACK -- Duke Nukem 3D on XBLA

I've been a Duke Nukem fan ever since I first played Duke Nukem 3D on PC many, many years ago. When I first heard about a possible port of DN3D over to the XBLA, I was extremely stoked, seeing how I'm a huge fan and all. But that was mere rumors and nothing was definite at that point. Then months later, 3D Realms finally confirmed that the classic FPS would in fact be making its way to the XBLA sometime in 2008.

The only question at the time was "When", hint: Duke Nukem Forever. Lots of people thought different... thought the game would never see the light of day, kind of like DNF. I never gave up hope and today marks the day that Duke Nukem 3D does see the light of day and on Xbox Live Arcade!

Some of the features that this version has are:
  • Online co-op with up to 8 players and multiplayer(DukeMatch)
  • The ability to rewind or fast forward so that you can go back to whatever part in the level
  • Player clips which allows you to watch your progress in whichever level and also let you show others players your clips
  • And more!
In closing, as Duke Nukem always said, "It's time to kick ass and chew bubble gum. And I'm all outta gum!" - Go download your copy of Duke Nukem 3D NOW... I have!
