Confirmed: Duke Nukem Forever Coming in 2008, 3D Hitting XBLA (http://kotaku.com/353315/confirmed-duke-nukem-forever-coming-in-2008-3d-hitting-xbla)

In a series of emails with the Dallas Business Journal, 3D Realms' President Scott Miller confirmed all sorts of news about the Duke Nukem franchise of games. (We wish that anything "confirmed" about Duke Nukem didn't just make us giggle at this point.)

First and foremost, the elusive Duke Nukem Forever (http://kotaku.com/335793/duke-nukem-forever-teaser-trailer) is slated for a late 2008 release. As for platforms, Miller explains:We haven't formally announced any platforms for DNF...But, of course hitting the big three makes the most sense (PC, PS3, 360).As for rumors (http://kotaku.com/345188/rumor-duke-nukem-coming-to-xbla-in-mere-months)of an XBLA version of Duke Nukem 3D, those are now looking pretty legit.

The details are light, but the XBLA version will feature everything you'd expect, including online multiplayer, co-op (unspecified if that is online or not), and your typical scoreboards and achievements. 3D Realms is negotiating with Microsoft to get a release window of "sometime this year" on this title as well.

But this XBLA download makes me wonder—I've always considered LIVE's retro titles to be designed for "glory days" gamers who were looking to recapture magic of years gone by. How many of our younger readers use the service to download games that they never originally played, like Tapper or Doom? How many of you will download Duke Nukem 3D if you like the new version?

Duke Nukem 3d on XBLA could turn out to be the best arcade game imo

Without a doubt, it'll certainly be my favourite! Well, 2nd favourite after UMK3...

I've got fond memories of the original game, so that will be cool for the live arcade. I just hope it's held up well over time. I went back and checked out Command and Conquer (original) which came with C&C3 + collection and boy does it look terrible now. lol

I just want to hear Duke Nukem say "Blow it out your ass".

I will buy it for that.

Great news, as I loved playing Duke Nukem 3D on the PC eventhough I haven't played it in YEARS.
