Duke Nukem 3D confirmed for XBLA

Hopefully this year, says Scott Miller.

3D Realms has said that Duke Nukem 3D is definitely heading to Xbox Live Arcade.

Confirmation came from big shot Scot Miller, who told the Dallas Business Journal it would have co-operative play, online multiplayer, and potentially be available this year. What are you waiting for? Christmas?

"We're really excited about bringing classic Duke to the 360," said Miller. "We're talking to Microsoft about getting a release slot sometime this year."

We heard late last summer that 3D Realms was keen to port its old classic, and was just waiting on the go ahead from the platform holder.

Duke Nukem 3D appeared on PC back in 1996, and is a first-person shooter where you rid the world of an alien invasion.

Key to its success was its low moral values and gruff protagonist, who went around causing a bloody mess in strip clubs and the like. Pretty good looking for the time too, and devilishly fun in four-player LAN mode.

Your face. Your ass. What's the difference?
