Fear not: Duke Nukem still plans to kick ass and chew bubblegum on the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita, but it’s going to take a little bit more time.
Publisher Devolver Digital tweeted in May of this year the PS3 and PS Vita port of Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition by Abstraction Games was submitted for certification, hinting the game was close to being released. Now July, Devolver Digital has given an update on Duke Nukem 3D‘s certification status. “Just an update on Duke Nukem 3D for PS3/Vita – still in certification and testing to make sure it kicks all the ass when it comes out! :P,” the publisher tweeted. Given the solid track record Devolver Digital has established in PS3 and PS Vita releases such as Hotline Miami and Luftrausers, the Texas-based company has earned itself more time to spare.
Originally sold on Steam last year, Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition is considered to be the definitive compilation of the 1996 game. The Megaton Edition includes the original game, the Atomic Edition that featured a new fourth episode in the story, and three expansion packs: Duke Caribbean: Life’s a Beach, Duke it out in D.C., and Duke: Nuclear Winter.
