What if you want to kick alien rumps and oogle pixelated breasts but you're on the bus? Well, you could play the iOS or Nokia N900 edition of Duke Nukem 3D. But what if you want actual buttons to press? The King's coming to Vita in DN3D's shiny Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition form, publisher Devolver Digital has teased.
"Here's Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition running on a PlayStation Vita," Devolver said yesterday on Twitter. "That is all." Well, almost all, as it also referenced Abstraction Games, the folks behind other PlayStation ports of games including Hotline Miami and Knytt Underground.
The Megaton Edition is a fancied-up re-release of DUKE3D.EXE, including the fan-made engine update supporting OpenGL shininess. It also packs the Plutonium Pak add-on made by 3D Realms, and the expansions Duke Caribbean: Life's a Beach, Duke It Out in D.C., and Christmas-y celebration Nuclear Winter, which were made by others. A honking great compilation, in short.
As for a release date and price and all that jazz, we'll need to wait for the formal announcement. The PC release costs $10 though, and I'd be surprised if it cost more on Vita.
