Joe Kucan returns as Kane 25 years after he first played the Command & Conquer villain

Nod of approval.

Kane lives! 25 years after he first played the Brotherhood of Nod boss in real-time strategy game Command & Conquer, Joe Kucan has reprised his role to mark today's release of Command & Conquer Remastered Collection.

Kucan, who seems impervious to the passage of time, appears in the fun video, below, to deliver a message to Command & Conquer fans who, if they have anything about them, will all be playing Brotherhood of Nod.

Kucan last played Kane 10 years ago in Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight. The series has been on something of a hiatus since then, despite ill-advised revivals from EA, but the Command & Conquer Remastered Collection looks like the real deal. It's developed by Petroglyph Games, which was founded by some of the people who made the original at the shuttered Westwood Studios. Expect more from Digital Foundry soon.

Until then, enjoy this 20 minute video all about Kane lore.
