Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project XBLA Announced!

"Duke Nukem is back! New York City is being overrun by a mutant menace and it's time to de-worm the Big Apple. This explosive 3D action game features Duke Nukem defending the city that never sleeps, and its babes, from the evil Mech Morphix across 24 levels from Chinatown to Space. A super-sized collection of weapons, enemies and bosses await. As Duke would say, "Babes, Bullets, Bombs. I love this job!"

Coming on Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010 to Xbox LIVE Arcade is the 3D Realms classic, "Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project".

The cost of the game will be 800 Microsoft Points (there will be a free demo available at that time, too). This is a single player blast fest that won a lot of fans when originally released some years ago for the PC. But this summer, you'll be able to play the game on the Xbox 360, where it's found a perfect home.

If you want to read up more on the game, you can check out our page for the PC Version of the game. Everything from that game is in here, so you can get a good amount of information on it. Additionally, 3D Realms still sells the PC version of the game, so if you're interested in that, you can check out our online store here. You can also get more information about the game at the Xbox.com page for it.

There are some cool Xbox LIVE awards and bonuses you can get with the full version of the game.

  • Duke Nukem Logo T-Shirt (male and female). You can get this one pretty easily.
  • Jetpack avatar award. You get this one if you finish the complete game.

Also available is a trailer released today for the Xbox LIVE Arcade version of the game, you can check it out below.

Finally, in other Duke Nukem Xbox news, Duke Nukem 3D XBLA, which was released in 2008 is on sale this week. Instead of the normal 800 MS Points, it is on sale this week only for the low price of 400 MS Points ($5). Check it out if you don't already have it.
