Duke Nukem kicks the XBLA's a** and chews bubble gum on Sept 24th

Wednesday, September 24th. According to developer 3D Realms, that's the Xbox Live Arcade release date for Duke Nukem 3D. Duke 3D with saved films and a rewind feature! Huzzah! Just keep in mind that this isn't an official Microsoft release date announcement, so there's a 3% chance this release date could be wrong. And as far as pricing goes, that's still undecided, but 3D Realms promises to announce it in "a very short time."

'Several hours' of Duke Nukem Forever currently playable

During an interview with 3D Realms' George Broussard about the XBLA port of Duke Nukem 3D, Team Xbox took it upon itself to ask what's going on with Duke Nukem Forever. In response, Broussard stated that the project is "going really well" and that "There are several hours of fairly polished game to play." Broussard added further that the game is undergoing testing and that "things are coming together," saying, "It's fun, it's in focus, we know what bits are fun and which are not, and it's just a matter of time now." Broussard concluded by saying he's "probably never been as happy or excited" about Duke Nukem Forever as he is right now. We'd like to share the sentiment, but at this point we are all but numb to Duke Nukem Forever. Here's hoping we change our tune when the game releases, which may not be too far away if Broussard's comments are anything to go by.

Video'licious Duke Nukem 3D footage

With all the Duke Nukem 3D news trickling in over the past few weeks, we know a lot about the game including some of the new additions, release date and even the game's achievements, but we really haven't seen the game in action or how the new rewind / video share features will work ... until now. Shacknews posted a quick and dirty Duke Nukem 3D hands-on writeup including video footage of the game menus, game footage and the two new features. All we can say is that those who suffered from Marathon motion sickness will probably become woozy after playing Duke on the XBLA. Yum, yum!

Duke Nukem 3D, now with saved films and rewind

With it's September release already but solidified, we just learned that Duke Nukem 3D for the Xbox Live Arcade will also be sporting some new film saving features.

According to a Microsoft representative at X08, Duke 3D will include both gameplay rewind and saved film video features. The rewind option will allow players to "undo" mistakes (like dying) or go back to a point earlier in the game, whereas the saved film feature will (expectedly) allow players to record and share Duke 3D multiplayer videos with gamers. Two interesting game additions that we totally didn't see coming, but are welcomed none the less. Two features we'd also like another Duke game to incorporate, somehow.

Duke Nukem 3D lands on XBLA next month

Speaking to Joystiq, Xbox representative Jason Ing has revealed that Duke Nukem 3D should hit the Xbox Live Arcade service "sometime in September." For those keeping score, September starts in just over a week. Ing reconfirmed that the game has passed certification and also revealed that the game will be published by Microsoft. Duke Nukem 3D is set to include minimal graphical enhancements akin to what was seen with the XBLA port of Doom. Frankly, we don't care what it looks like as long as it has shrink rays and deathmatch.

3D Realms finally confirms Duke's XBLA adventures

After blogging about the Duke Nukem 3D achievements yesterday and the whole ESRB rating thing, we finally bent them into submission! 3D Realms just officially confirmed that Duke Nukem 3D for the Xbox Live Arcade is in fact a reality (uhh, duh?) and that it has already passed Microsoft's certification process. Celebratory high five! Though, they're keeping their release date, pricing and game feature cards close to their chest. But 3D Realms promises us that Duke 3D previews should be making their way onto the internets sometime next week and also mentions that OXM's October issue has plenty of juicy Duke bits. Duke Nukem 3D ... it's really real!

Come get some Duke Nuke 3D achievements

Even with an ESRB rating, some leaked XBLM screenshots and a hint from 3D Realms themselves that it'll be releasing soon, we still don't have any concrete XBLA Duke Nukem 3D release details. It's sad, really. But now we can add achievements to our war chest of Duke Nukem 3D proof, because a complete list of all twelve achievements has made its way to the internets today. Complete with artwork too! You can view the list over at Achieve360Points.com, but be mindful of where you step. You wouldn't want to unlock the "Looks Like Cleanup on Aisle 4" achievement while navigating the internets for Duke Nukem 3D news, now would you?

'Unofficial' XBLA Duke Nukem 3D gets ESRB rating

You can officially peel off that vaporware label and stick it to another game, because Duke Nukem 3D for the XBLA (not Forever, it still keeps its vaporware label) just ninja-received a rating from the ESRB. The still to be officially confirmed XBLA release of Duke 3D was recently given a Mature rating by the ESRB due to its "Blood and Gore, Strong Sexual Content and Violence" to which we say ... BRING IT! Now we just have to play the XBLA release date waiting game, though we're pretty darn sure we won't see it release anytime in August.

Duke Nukem Forever screen shows alien, we think

Our initial assessment of the fragile 3D Realms and Dallas Business Journal relationship seems to have been made in haste, or maybe it was jealousy. The Dallas Business Journal has released a brand new image of the anticipated uh... most-wanted um... video game Duke Nukem Forever. The image, which is shown above in its original size, might be of an enemy in the upcoming title but because we do not have access to the Hubble Space telescope to magnify it from its 300 pixel wide glory we can't say for sure.

Duke Nukem Forever, XBLA Duke confirmed for 08 [Update 2]

Update 2: The original interview in the Dallas Business Journal has been edited with many corrections regarding all things Duke. Primarily it now reads Duke Nukem Forever is internally projected for a 2008 release by 3D Realms and will likely come to the Xbox 360, PS3 and the PC. Basically, we're back to square one.

3D Realms has informed Shacknews that the release date and platform availability for Duke Nukem Forever were not confirmed in the Dallas Business Journal interview, though the company apparently did not deny the information regarding the XBLA release of Duke Nukem 3D.

Original article: Hot off the presses internets comes word from 3D Realms that Duke Nukem Forever is confirmed for late 2008 release. Hitting Xbox 360, PS3 and the PC it was announced for in 1996, Duke is the daddy of everything vaporware. In an email exchange with the Dallas Business Journal, 3D Realms president Scott Miller confirmed that the long 12-year wait for Duke's return will be over by the end of the calendar year. Miller went on to reiterate, "we may miss the mark by a month or two, but I feel very confident that we're on target this time." Miller also confirmed the existence of the rumored Xbox Live Arcade version of the classic PC title Duke Nukem 3D, which will feature online multiplayer support, leaderboards, and a co-op mode. When asked about a possible release date for the XBLA title Miller said, "we're talking to Microsoft about getting a release slot sometime this year." We're holding our collective breaths.

Rumor: XBLA to come get some Duke Nukem 3D

We've had our share of rumors surrounding XBLA releases as of late, so many that our head has been metaphorically spinning in an effort to keep track of them all. But, it's another day and that means we have to accept the fact that we've got another XBLA rumor. So, let's get to it ... Duke Nukem 3D to the Xbox Live Arcade!

Yes sir, word on the street is that 3D Realms is cooking up an XBLA version of Duke Nukem 3D that'll not only kick ass and chew bubblegum, but will also be Xbox Live enabled. Live functionality including four player co-op and eight player versus deathmatch to boot. The rumor comes from a 3D Realms employee who confirmed with IGN that the game is in full development and that it should make a release to the Arcade within' the next few months. Believe what you want, but even if 3D Realms were to confirm Duke Nukem 3D for the XBLA we'd have to see it before we 100% believed it. Because, you know, there's always the possibility that we could have another generation of vaporware on our hands.
