3D Realms and Interceptor Entertainment, the studio behind the Rise of the Triad reboot, just revealed that Apogee’s 90s classic Duke Nukem II, a side-scrolling game that lets you guide Duke across 32 action-packed levels, blasting the living crap out of every alien that dares to get in your thumb-smashing way, is set for release on mobile devices.
“It’s an amazing experience to be able to work on such a beloved franchise,” said Frederik Schreiber, CEO and game director at Interceptor Entertainment. “As kids, we were all big fans of Duke Nukem II, and working with Scott Miller and 3D Realms to bring this classic back to life on new platforms was a dream come true. Scott is a great partner, and I’m looking forward to working together on more exciting titles in the future!”
“Before Duke Nukem 3D, before the sunglasses, before the one-liners, and before the strippers – many gamers never knew there was another incredible alien ass-kicking Duke game, a cutting-edge game for its time that still holds up 20 years later,” said Scott Miller, CEO and co-founder of 3D Realms.
Duke Nukem II is set for release in April for $1.99.
