Shackers may still be debating if the Duke Nukem franchise is ready for a reboot, but 3D Realms clearly thinks it is time for another game built of Duke Nukem 3D's Build Engine. The company has announced Ion Maiden with a brand new trailer showing off all the "hand-crafted pixelated glory". Please take a look.
Check out the official PR statement:
Welcome to ION MAIDEN!
Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison earned her nickname as a bomb disposal expert for the Global Defense Force. When transhumanist cult mastermind Dr. Jadus Heskel unleashes a cybernetic army on Neo DC, Shelly decides it’s time to start chucking bombs rather than defusing them. Her journey will leave trails of blood and gore in huge, multi-path levels filled with those famous colorful keycards and plenty of secrets and Easter Eggs to discover behind every corner. Order Ion Maiden now, and get access to the exclusive preview campaign TODAY!
It remains to be seen if this game will live up to the hype, but Shackers who enjoy games that run on Build Engine may want to give this game a shot. Ion Maiden is available now on Steam. It is also for sale with no DRM at 3D Realms official website. The game is priced at $19.99 but is on sale until March 7 for $17.99.
