Duke Nukem 3D confirmed for XBLA?

Jan 15, 2008

Duke Nukem 3D is coming to Xbox Live Arcade, if rumours circulating the internet are to be believed.

"Sources close to 3D Realms" have confirmed that the FPS classic will hit XBLA "within the next several months," IGN reports.

It goes on to add that the XBLA version features a four-player online co-op mode, and that sources have further alleged that eight-player Deathmatch is included too.

You may recall that way back in time - August 2007 to be precise - Duke Nukem dev 3D Realms revealed it wanted to get Duke Nukem 3D onto Xbox Live Arcade.

"Truth be told, we've talked to Microsoft about it and have some people that would port it... Just waiting on the good word from Microsoft to continue," 3D Realms' George Broussard said at the time.

So has the developer finally received that good word?

First-person shooter Duke Nukem 3D originally released in 1996 for PC and its combination of comedy and slick, inventive gameplay made it an instant classic.
