Take 2 has announced that it will be releasing several games for Nintendo's garish next generation console the GameCube, including a version of the long overdue first person shooter Duke Nukem Forever. This comes hot on the heels of the recent news that Max Payne is being ported to the PlayStation 2, as Take 2 puts more effort into hardcore games for the console side of its business. Also confirmed by the publisher is a new Duke Nukem title for the GameBoy Advance, which we will no doubt hear more about at the ubiquitous E3 trade show in Los Angeles.
Duke Nukem is apparently one of the most successful gaming franchises in history, having shifted more than $120m worth of games on various platforms since the breakthrough title Duke Nukem 3D way back in 1995. According to Take 2 CEO Kelly Sumner, "the new high-performance hardware systems and Duke Nukem's overwhelming appeal will make for an explosive combination".
