E3: Duke Nukem goes handheld

duke e3Apogee Software is making a reappearance in game publishing by not only re-releasing its legacy game catalog of 30+ games and working on new projects, but it will be bringing Duke Nukem to handheld consoles.

The re-release will be called Duke Nukem Trilogy and will add three new missions. DNT will feature the episodes: Critical Mass, Chain Reaction, and Proving Grounds.

Terry Nagy, co-founder of Apogee said, "This marks a new beginning for a famous publisher with a history of market-making innovation. I can’t think of a better character than Duke or a better franchise than the Trilogy to usher in a new era for Apogee."

Scott Miller, the other member responsible for founding Apogee stated, "It’s funny how what’s old is new again in this industry Many of the things Apogee pioneered are back in style, so it only makes sense to bring back Apogee and its properties with a visionary team that will once again create innovation for gamers around the world."

Imagine, having Duke Nukem in your pocket. Yee haw!

Apogee first made its appearance in 1987 and is credited with trail blazing ideas such as game demos being distributed online and episodic releases.
