At the end of January 2015 fans of the Duke Nukem franchise got a surprise announcement. That announcement was a massive collection of Duke Nukem games that are coming to Android in what is called the Duke Nukem 3D: Hail to the King Collection. We got a chance to talk with Richard “TerminX” Gobeille of Voidpoint, the company behind the collection, about the upcoming release and all things Duke Nukem.
We have dug up some additional details regarding the upcoming Duke Nukem 3D: Hail to the King Collection from Voidpoint that will be landing onto Google Play sometime in Q1 2015. As we mentioned in our original article, Voidpoint hasn’t come up with a specific price point yet for the collection but we do now have confirmation that there will not, at all, be any IAPs. We did mention that the entire collection would be included in the launch but considering the amount of games in it, we wanted to make sure it would be available for one price.
Yesterday was the day that Duke Nukem 3D was released onto PC back in 1996. That was 19 years ago and to celebrate this anniversary, Voidpoint will be bringing Duke Nukem 3D: Hail to the King Collection to Android this Spring. This is largely thanks to the fact that Voidpoint has acquired commercial rights to the original 1996 PC game Duke Nukem 3D, the expansions ‘Duke It Out in D.C,’ Duke Caribbean: Life’s a Beach,’ ‘Duke: Nuclear Winter’ as well as the N64’s original Duke Nukem 64 and PlayStation’s original Duke Nukem: Total Meltdown from 1997.
