Duke Nukem 3D XBLA Getting September Release, New Features: Saved Replays, Gameplay Rewind

The impending Xbox Live Arcade release of 3D Realms' classic PC shooter Duke Nukem 3D will feature the ability to rewind gameplay and save clips from multiplayer, publisher Microsoft has revealed to Joystiq.


Similar to Prince of Persia: Sands of Time and Braid, the rewind functionality allows players to reverse time and replay a part of the single player campaign, allowing them to make another go at firefights and perhaps prevent their untimely demise.

Meanwhile, the saved film feature lets players preserve multiplayer battles and share the replays with other Xbox Live users, calling to mind Halo 3's similar functionality.

While the game's price point has yet to be announced, Microsoft's Jason Ing told Joystiq to expect the downloadable Xbox 360 title and its poop-stepping, stripper-tipping achievements "sometime in September."
