Duke Nukem II Coming To iOS
Duke Nukem 3D is already available to play on the App Store now, and just in time for the sequel’s 20th anniversary, Duke Nukem 2 is coming to the App Store soon.
Interceptor Entertainment, the team behind the Rise of the Triad reboot, is handling the reins of the project, with 3D Realms overseeing.
The game will include 32 levels of carnage from the original game, but with new music, touchscreen support, replays and integrated leaderboards. The port preserves the original’s 256-color palette and “future” game setting of 1998. The wisecracking hero can use four weapon types, and fights aliens to save the Earth from invasion.
“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 CEO and co-founder of 3D Realms, Scott Miller.
The game was originally released in late 1993 for DOS, but was successfully ported onto the Color Gameboy later that decade, though the latter edition had substantial differences. It arrived two years after the original Duke Nukem, and is set a year after the original story, with Nukem having to escape a kidnapping by the evil Rigelatins, foiling their plan for enslaving the Earth and saving the day.
