3D Realms Hopes to Kick Ass, Chew Bubblegum with Duke Nukem on Xbox Live Arcade

By Chris Remo, Aug 11, 2007 11:11pm PDT Little has been heard about the legendary Duke Nukem Forever recently, but Duke series developer 3D Realms does want to bring its classic 1996 shooter Duke Nukem 3D to Xbox 360's Xbox Live Arcade.

News of the studio's desire to develop the port came in our very own chat comments from 3D Realms' George Broussard, who said the studio could develop a Live Arcade version of the game if Microsoft is interested.

"Truth be told, we've talked to Microsoft about it and have some people that would port it," he wrote. "Just waiting on the good word from Microsoft to continue."

This wouldn't be the first time the series has made it to consoles. Nintendo 64, PlayStation, and Game Boys Advance and Color have all hosted Duke.

Broussard confirmed the accuracy of his post to Shacknews, but declined to comment further.

  • I'd enjoy the SP but Duke is one of those MP games which bring up the whole mouse and key vs controller issues.

    It comes from an era where twitch skill is king and high speed is a must :/ I used tp play this on a BBS and direct modem with friends years ago, it was great but it was also damned fast.

    Normally I don't care for the fps on console debates, Halo proved it's possible to do them fairly well in SP but that's a modern shooter, in regards to pace etc, something like Duke may well have me sitting in the other camp insisting I need my k/b and mouse to own peole.
