The Duke is back. Gearbox is bringing its recent Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary Edition World Tour to Nintendo’s Switch this week.
Time to kick ass…
Do you miss the days of classic, action-packed FPS? So you prefer your shooters to have less story and more blasting? Do you like badass heroes who don’t ever take off their sunglasses?
Well… have you skipped Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary Edition World Tour on all the other platforms that it’s come out for? If the answer to some or all of these questions is ‘yes’ then you’re in luck. The Duke is almost ready to hit the Nintendo Switch.
A perfect portable (or at home) port of the classic FPS is honestly pretty awesome all by itself. This though, is the most recent edition of the game, from publisher Gearbox.
That means that you get more than just the base game. Actually, quite a bit more. Even if you have played a version of this one on another platform too, you’ll find something new here.
