Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction teased

Looks like gamers should prepare to Hail to the King...again?

Interceptor Entertainment is developing Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction, a new action roleplaying game for PC and PlayStation.

Interceptor originally released a chunk of text, and asked for 10,000 Facebook likes to translate it. However, Internet fans quickly translated it ahead of time. The decrypted text revealed that this new, next-gen Duke game would be a top-down action role-playing game for PC and PlayStation called Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction.

"Duke Nukem kicks ass across planets in an Unreal Engine-powered galactic adventure to save the President from an apocalyptic alien threat," the decrypted text states. "All-new enemies, a never before seen arsenal of devastating weaponry, and series-first mechanics; including experience points and tech trees, will let Duke rip 'em a new one in a way he never has before."

Now Interceptor has put up a teaser site,, counting down to February 25. The site's title and "Kick-Ass Gum" artwork reference a commonly-quoted line from Duke Nukem 3D.

It sounds like the game won't be a first-person shooter like Duke Nukem 3D and Duke Nukem Forever, but Duke's first two titles were both sidescrollers. Interceptor previously ported Duke Nukem II onto iOS.

What do you think? Was the awful disappointment of Duke Nukem Forever enough to make you swear off of any future Duke titles, or are you curious what Interceptor Entertainment is cooking up?
