Remember Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction? The game that 3D Realms and Interceptor Entertainment never officially announced but which was uncovered by the Internet anyway? The game whose development was stymied by a bitter dispute with Gearbox over the rights to Duke Nukem?
While that particular little disagreement is still ongoing, 3D Realms and Interceptor have announced a new game called Bombshell, and it's absolutely, positively nothing to do with Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction, honest.
It is, however, a top-down action RPG, like Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction. Its plot revolves around the kidnapping of the president by an alien threat, like Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction. It uses Unreal Engine to power its visuals... like Nuke Nukem: Mass Destruction. And it's headed for PC and PlayStation 4. Like, you know, Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction.
Regardless of whether or not it is just a reskin of Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction, however, it certainly has the potential to be a decent amount of fun. Interceptor Entertainment proved their ability to put together a good quality, fast-paced action game with last year's Rise of the Triad reboot, and if the RPG elements are integrated nicely this could be an enjoyable blastathon for those in need of a little ultraviolence with a distinctly '90s feel to it.
Bombshell -- assuming it doesn't at some point revert back to being a Duke Nukem game -- is set to release next year.
