While the still in development Duke Nukem Forever for the PC remains solidly vaporware at this point (enough that many have labeled the game “Duke Nukem Whatever”), the Duke has made his debut on the third screen. SkyZone Entertainment and MachineWorks Northwest have announced that Duke Nukem Arena 3D is live on select Verizon Wireless Get It Now enabled phones.
The game, which is using the RIPP3D graphics engine, retains the traditional first-person shooter (FPS) game experience where players can take the role of Duke, Pigcop or Paratrooper and battle it out with up to three other players.
“SkyZone is serious about marquee content acquisition, and our relationship with MachineWorks NorthWest gives us the ability to deliver a more high-end gaming experience to subscribers,” said Bob Shireman, Chief Publishing Officer for SkyZone Entertainment, Inc. “In addition to complimenting our portfolio of popular gaming titles, Duke Nukem Arena 3D has appeal across a wide gamer demographic, representing an excellent value driver for carriers.”
Duke Nukem Arena 3D is available now for $3.49 monthly access or $9.99 unlimited access for select handsets via the Get It Now virtual store.
