Posted on August 22, 2008, Jonathan XBLA Duke Nukem Coming in September With New Rewind and Saved Film Features
Apparently, when Microsoft said Duke Nukem for the XBLA was coming “soon,” what they really meant was “next month.” The company has now confirmed that the classic shooter will be availalbe for download in September and will come packed with a few unexpected additions, such as the new “rewind” and “saved film” features. “Rewind” will essentially let you reverse the gameplay back in time to relive a particularly fun area or — far more useful — undo mistakes, like death. You’ll be able to save clips from multiplayer matches and share them online (though how this will actually work remains to be seen).
So you can expect to relive Duke Nukem in just a few weeks. It’s a good thing this announcement doesn’t come directly from 3D Realms though, since their definition of “soon” is usually “whenever we get around to it.”
