Important news from Nintendo: Duke Nukem 3D: The 20th anniversary of the World Tour Switch announced via the Entertainment Software Rating Board. ESRB is the usual suspect regarding leaks and rumors before important publications, but it’s a guaranteed announcement, according to the publication. According to Gearbox Publishing, the 2016 version of Duke 3D will be integrated into the most advanced portable console of our time. The note and the summary are already outstanding on some sources online, but Switch Eshop has still not put forward the next version, so no one is the wisest…
These online sources agree that this CSRB classification means that the publication is guaranteed and that Duke Nukem 3D Switch is happening, but still has not been officially announced. Things look better if you look at BulletStorm: Duke of Switch Edition, published on August 30, 2019, published by GearBox and developed by People Can Fly. Gearbox Publishing is definitely involved again, but so far, the iconic 3D Realms icon is signed as a developer.
The 1996 edition of the 3D FPS, which celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2016, was on Steam for PC that year. It was developed by 3D Realms, which had a team of eight people (later 12 or 13 people) and a limited budget of $ 300,000. The game is released in several versions for PC, then it was worn on various consoles, such as Sega, PlayStation 1 and other very popular at that time in the 90’s. This is a commercial success that has generated many Extensions and editions later, as the alarm of the year 2016.
On Steam, Duke Nukem 3D: The world tour of the 20th anniversary of PC had very positive reviews and a score of 9/10. Its price is $ 19.99, which can be considered fairly high for a birthday edition, without particular remastening. However, the original game was so well designed in 1996 that it continues to seduce the public. Naturally, some improvements have been brought by themselves, but it is still to be seen what it will look like on Switch and what it will involve… and what will be the price.
Apart from this, the information proposed by the ESRB will summarize in a fairly precise description of the game, in which one can read: “The exchange of shots are accompanied by realistic shots, great explosions and effects of Splashes of blood. The enemies sometimes separate into bloody fragments as they are killed. “It is totally true. It remains to be seen if and how this portage will occur, but the Duke Nukem 3D Nintendo Switch edition is raising great hopes.
