Cigar-chomping testosterone factory foiling alien invasion news now, with word that the Duke Nukem
game you've all been waiting for -- again -- may be arriving imminently. Speaking to Shacknews
, 3D Realms' George Broussard has confirmed that the Xbox Live Arcade version of Duke Nukem 3D
has defeated the development galaxy's most dreaded scourge, the Microsoft certification process.
"We officially passed final cert on our first try Friday, August 15th," said Broussard, also revealing that the game is due for release "soon." Though we've yet to see convincing evidence that 3D Realms employees are familiar with that last word's meaning, we'll give them the benefit of the doubt when it comes to a game they've at least managed to complete once before.
No price has been announced yet, but Broussard noted that it would be "about what you'd expect." Meanwhile, be sure to check out the list of Duke Nukem 3D
